Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte believes that Harry Kane is one of the best strikers that he has worked with despite his poor form in the Premier League this season. This is high praise since Antonio Conte has managed Carlos Tevez, Diego Costa, and Romelu Lukaku in the past. Last season’s Golden Boot winner has scored just once in 14 appearances this season.
“Harry is a world-class striker,” Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said talking about Harry Kane. “Every day that I train him I understand very well that he’s a world-class striker. He’s one of the best I’ve had the pleasure to train. He’s amazing. I like to have him on my team. For sure Jurgen [Klopp] likes to have Mo Salah. But I like to have Harry on my team. He’s an important player for us and my expectation was very high and to play an important game against Liverpool.”
“It’s very strange, no? It’s very strange,” he added. “If you compare what he did in the past, this is very strange. But also in the past, in my experience, before as a player and then as a coach, it happens. I played with important strikers who – for a long period – didn’t score. But my judgment about them didn’t change. I wanted to have them in my team also if they don’t score. Because if you have Harry Kane in your team, you feel stronger, for sure.”
