In an interview with the BBC, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has admitted that this season will be tougher than last year when it comes to scoring goals. He sat down with Newcastle United legend and former English national team great Alan Shearer for a one-on-one interview.
Shearer, whose 260 career Premier League goals is the most ever, talked with Kane about how much more difficult his second full season will be.
"Obviously I'm a goal scorer I want to be scoring every game, but that ain't always the case. So, you can't get too downhearted and lose your confidence. That's part of being a footballer, that's part of being a striker." said Kane.
The 22-year-old tallied an astonishing 30 goals in all competitions last campaign, becoming the first Spurs player since Gary Lineker to do so. However, he has been kept off the score sheet through four games this season. Kane reckons the added attention from opposing players will make it tougher for him this year.
"It is going to be more difficult this season because players are more aware, but top players deal with that. If I want to become a top player that's what I'll have to do.
Obviously, people are going to have high expectations of me now, but I'm very self-confident. I know I can score goals, so it's just about doing things right, never getting too high or too low, just keeping that medium and being focused. "
Shearer and Kane chatted at length about a multitude of topics including Spurs outlook for this season and the player's career aspirations. Watch the full video interview by clicking here.
