No foolin’ — Harry Kane ties record with seventh Premier League Player of the Month award

We wouldn’t joke about something like this.

Today’s April Fool’s Day, but we’re not joking about this — Harry Kane has won his seventh Premier League Player of the Month award for March. The league announced winners of its monthly awards this morning on social media and on its website.

Kane won the award over a field that included his Tottenham teammate Dejan Kulusevski, but in truth this shouldn’t be a surprise. Harry scored four goals and tallied two assists during the month of March, easily enough to take home the award despite Deki contributing three assists of his own along the way.

Remarkably, Kane has now tied Sergio Aguero for a Premier League record for most career monthly awards won with seven, a record that he’s now almost assuredly going to break.

Elsewhere, Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta took home the Premier League Manager of the Month award over a field that included Spurs head coach Antonio Conte, while Cristiano Ronaldo won the Goal of the Month award for a goal I’m not bothering to look up because it’s Ronaldo and I really don’t care.
