Tottenham striker Harry Kane admits his road to success this season has been difficult.
As a child he experienced knockbacks by both Arsenal and Spurs - and even once he did make the grade he was still having to prove himself.
Kane has never looked back, and explained: "I think that self-belief is a massive thing in football. If you don't believe in yourself, not many others will.
"It's hard work to become a footballer nowadays, especially coming through an academy. There's a lot of money in football and if a team hasn't got an answer, they just go and buy someone. They think that's the answer but it's not always the case."
