Conte lauds Kane as an ‘example’ after Spurs go fourth

 

Antonio Conte hailed Harry Kane’s “amazing” performance after the England captain played his part in Tottenham’s 5-1 thrashing of Newcastle United.

Speaking to Sky Sports after another demonstration of Kane’s creative prowess, Conte said the 28-year-old’s exploits were “not normal”.

Conte said:

“His performance was terrific.

“I told him at the end of the game that it was a shame he did not score.

“To have this type of player in your team makes you strong. His teammates need to know Kane is in our team. We know he can score and create.

“First of all, I like the person. We are talking about a talented player, [but] many times, players with great talent do not want to work hard, sometimes they can be lazy.

“He was an example from the first day I arrived here. You can think this is normal, but it is not normal. It is a great example to his teammates, and you see his desire to be competitive.”

Alongside his 12 goals, Kane now has six Premier League assists this season, more than any Spurs player.

Meanwhile, only Liverpool and Manchester City (both 50) have earned more Premier League points than Tottenham (39) since Conte’s arrival in November.

Conte added:

“When you see your team play this way, you enjoy it.

“We played a perfect game.

“We are in a good moment. The team is growing in every aspect. The work we are doing is paying off.

“A good result is essential for the trust in the work we are doing. Sometimes it is hard work, but when you see this, you trust in what you are doing.

“I like to be honest and transparent in every moment with my players, I arrived in November, and it was difficult to put a target on the season. But now, I have had five or six months to work and bring my idea of football and mentality.

“If players do not want to improve and make themselves reach a different level, it is difficult for the coach. But I must thank my players, from the first day, they have shown commitment and desire to improve.”

The runaway victory sent Tottenham into the Premier League’s top four, putting them ahead of rivals Arsenal in the battle for Champions League football on goal difference, ahead of the Gunners’ trip to Crystal Palace on Monday.
