Canaries loan spell key part of learning curve for Harry
24 December 2015|Tottenham Hotspur
Harry Kane experienced football's highs and lows during an injury-hit loan stint at our Boxing Day opponents Norwich City.
The striker was only 19 when he joined Norwich on loan at the start of the 2012-13 campaign and made his first start in the Premier League for the Canaries at West Ham on New Year’s Day, 2013.
Unfortunately, a serious injury curtailed his time at Carrow Road with Harry sidelined for three months.
Now he’s set to play against the Canaries for the first time on Boxing Day having been an unused substitute in the 2013-14 campaign.
“It was a great experience to go to Norwich on loan,” reflected Harry. “I hadn’t had a start in the Premier League, got a little taste of it and really enjoyed it.
“Unfortunately I broke my foot after a few weeks, I came back to Spurs for treatment and when I went back in December I played a couple of games but the club felt it would be better to come back in January.
“I’m looking forward to playing them, I know a few players there, good lads and now they are coming here off a great result at Manchester United.
“They will be full of confidence - but so are we after a great win against Southampton.”
Harry felt Norwich’s fine 2-1 win at Old Trafford last weekend underlined the difficult nature of picking up results week to week in the Premier League.
“Everyone seems to be beating everyone and you have to be prepared for that every game,” he added.
“The defeat against Newcastle was probably the kick up the backside we all needed. Southampton was a great win and now we have to follow up against Norwich and Watford.”
