The slow start that Harry Kane is off to this Premier League season is dominating the headling as the 28-year-old has yet to score. Kane has goals in other competitions but can’t seem to find the back of the net in Tottenham Hotspur’s domestic league.
Plenty of pundits, journalists, and supporters have provided opinions on why Kane can’t seem to get going in 2021-22. Some have placed blame on manager Nuno Espírito Santo for his tactics. Meanwhile, others stated that the fault lies at the feet of Kane.
Former Tottenham star Chris Waddle doesn’t believe that Kane’s struggles to score are only the fault of the Portuguese tactician. Instead, Waddle is in the group that considers Kane himself is the cause of his problems.
Waddle accuses the England international of having checked out of Tottenham after his failed move to Manchester City this summer.
“Harry must have been heavily distracted by the Manchester City move in the summer,” Waddle told WhichBookie.co.uk. “He clearly thought he would be moving on, so for that not to have materialized must have been hard. He’s probably lost a little bit of confidence and interest in Tottenham, which is showing on the pitch.”
Kane will have the opportunity to score his first Premier League goal of the season when Spurs visit St. James’ Park and take on Newcastle United.
