Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo downplays Harry Kane’s dramatic dip in form stressing ‘he is much more than goals’ with the England captain still yet to score in the Premier League this season

  • Harry Kane is still yet to score a goal in the Premier League so far this season 
  • The striker was also unable to score for England mid-week against Hungary 
  • Nuno Espirito Santo though is not concerned over Kane’s lack of form 

Nuno Espirito Santo has insisted that he’s ‘relaxed’ over Harry Kane’s lack of form for Tottenham so far this season.

The England captain is yet to score a goal in the Premier League this season and is coming off an international break where he failed to find the back of the net for his country.

His dip in performances have come after a summer of speculation in which he was linked with Manchester City.

Ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash with Newcastle this weekend, Santo said he is confident the goals will come for his star striker.

He said during his pre-match press conference: ‘It’s normal. Harry sure is used to it. But we are relaxed.

‘We know that Harry is much more than goals, what he does for the team.

‘A fantastic football player, one of the best and naturally goals will come.’ 

Kane told Tottenham that he wanted to leave the club at the end of last season to boost his chances of winning trophies going forward.

It was reported in August felt chairman Dan Levy had broken a promise by not allowing him to leave the club despite Manchester City’s interest.

Levy was determined to keep the striker and Pep Guardiola’s side were priced out of a move.

Since his return to the Tottenham fold he has scored six goals, five of which have come in the Europa Conference League and the other in a Carabao Cup victory against Wolves.

Kane has failed to score in six Premier League outings however and will be keen to get on the scoresheet after also facing criticism after he failed to make an impact in England’s 1-1 draw with Hungary on Tuesday.

During his press conference, Nuno said South American players Cristian Romero, Davinson Sanchez, Emerson Royal and Giovani Lo Celso are travelling back from international duty and will be assessed whether they can play against Newcastle on Sunday.
