'He's getting better and better' - Keane on Kane

As a fellow member of the Spurs 100 club and one of the top strikers of the modern era, Robbie Keane has kept a close eye on Harry Kane’s continued exploits in front of goal.

And it’s no surprise to see the Irish legend describe the England captain’s form as ‘unbelievable.’

‘Keano’ scored 122 goals in 306 appearances over two spells with us between 2002-2011, one of only 17 players to hit three figures for the Club.

Harry began the 2017-18 season on 99 goals. He ended it on 140.

In doing so, he jumped from equal 18th to sixth in our all-time goalscoring list and became the first player to score 100 goals for us in the Premier League. He’s just signed a new six-year contract and is now leading the Three Lions to Russia on their World Cup adventure.

“Harry is getting better and better,” said Keano, the Republic of Ireland’s most capped player (146) and all-time record goalscorer (68), just back from a spell of playing and managing in the Indian Super League.

“People keep writing him off and he keeps producing, keeps scoring goals.

“The most important thing for me when I was a player was to do better the next season, score more goals, get more assists and Harry has continued to do that.”

Robbie enjoys the Spurs class of 2018. “I like this team, I do. I enjoy watching them, they are great to watch, very entertaining,” he added. “The players will only get better and better.”
