Tottenham striker Kane hits back at critics...again

Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has insisted that the critics do not bother him at all.

Kane endured a terrible time at the European Championships in France and he has struggled for Spurs during the current Premier League campaign so far as well.

As a result of his subpar form, Kane has been subjected to a lot of criticism from the media but the striker is not at all concerned and has stated that he is very confident of getting back to his usual rhythm in the coming weeks.

Kane said: "People said that this time last year and I went on to win the Golden Boot and score 30-odd goals for club and country.

"People are going to talk — people will talk. It doesn't bother me. I'm fit, I'm ready to go. I'll be ready on Sunday, if called upon by the gaffer, and hopefully I can get on the scoresheet and win the game.

"As a striker, you've got to be confident. I will never lose my confidence in front of goal. I'll be there on Sunday — if I get a chance — shooting and making the keeper work.

"Obviously I had a chance against Monaco that I should have scored. I just didn't connect with it the way that I wanted to, but that's football. You've got to learn from it. I'll be working hard to try and put it right and hopefully score on Sunday."
