Tottenham boss Conte delighted with Kane attitude

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is delighted with what he's seeing from Harry Kane.

Kane has started all four matches under Conte, including the embarrassing defeat to NS Mura last week, and he was named in the XI for Sunday's postponed visit to Burnley.

Getting the best out of the England captain remains one of Conte's most pressing challenges, with Kane still having scored just once in 11 League appearances.

Conte, though, has no doubts about Kane's enduring quality and says he has only been able to truly appreciate his “level" since working with him at close quarters.

“We have a world-class striker as a No9 in Harry and I am very delighted to have the opportunity to work with him because many times you make an evaluation [of a player from] outside [the club]," Conte said.

“But only when the coach has the possibility to train players, do you understand their level. With Harry, I was enthusiastic to see him in the way that he works every day and the commitment, heart and passion that he puts into Tottenham. It was not a surprise but when you arrive you do not know what you find. And I found this."
