Liverpool legend, Michael Owen has come out to say that Harry Kane is becoming more and more frustrated by his role under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.
Owen recently revealed that as soon as the goals start to dry up for the club this season, Kane could begin to grow disillusioned at Spurs.
According to him, Kane is not built for counter-attacking football and he is currently more of a No 10 this season with how he is assisting a lot more in games.
He added that to fulfil that role consistenly, Kane needs a lot of pace, lots of running, multiple sprints and he is not as young as he used to be.
His words, “If I was Harry Kane I would certainly be frustrated thinking ‘we play deep, we don’t get enough crosses in and we’re not playing to my strengths’,”
“However, results would suggest that at the moment everything is quite rosy and the more you win games and see yourself up the top of the table then the problems in your mind about how you’re playing or how much of the ball you’re getting probably disappears.
“If results don’t go well then all of a sudden, as a top centre forward, you’re thinking ‘hang on a minute, I’m not built for this counter-attacking style.’”
“In many ways, as well, he’s changed his role with the evolution of Tottenham. He’s much more of a No 10 this season and he’s assisting a lot more,”
“Being at the sharp end of that team requires a lot of pace, lots of running, multiple sprints and he’s not so young now.
“He’s going to get into a stage of his career, where we’ve all been, where you start tweaking your game a little bit to manage your body. So, in fact, it might be the making of him that he starts developing that No.10 role and it works even better when you’ve got pace around you.”
