Spurs talisman Harry Kane has today provided his take on the club’s widely-publicised recent struggles on the pitch.
Tottenham held by Watford
Mauricio Pochettino’s men welcomed bottom-of-the-table Watford to north London this past Saturday, for their latest Premier League outing.
Spurs no doubt headed into proceedings with the aim of putting their dismal pre-international break run of form firmly behind them.
The capital outfit had fallen to 4 defeats in their last 5 over the course of the last month, including an embarrassing League Cup exit at the hands of Colchester, and a harrowing 7-2 drubbing at home to Bayern Munich.
When all was said and done on Saturday afternoon, however, Tottenham’s shocking recent streak stretched to just 1 win in 7 across all competitions.
Watford actually opened the scoring in London, when Abdoulaye Doucoure found the net with just 6 minutes on the clock.
Dele Alli eventually levelled things up 5 minutes from time, but, in the end, Spurs failed to find an all-important winner.
‘Believe and fight’
As such, speaking in an interview earlier today, Spurs talisman and goal-scorer Harry Kane was drawn on the club’s recent slump.
The English international went on to admit that the present stands out as ‘probably the toughest time’ he has endured whilst in north London, but also added that a win over Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League tomorrow night could ‘kick-start’ the club’s season back into life:
‘It’s hard to put a finger on exactly what’s wrong. Sometimes when you’re having a run of form like this, things don’t always go your way in games.’
‘It’s about sticking together and if we win tomorrow night that can kick-start us.’
‘It’s probably the toughest time since I’ve been here. It’s just another challenge, though. The road to success will always have bumps and this is just one of them.’
‘We went through an experience in the last Champions League campaign where we had less points than we do now. We know about the effort it takes to get through a Champions League group. We have to believe and fight for everything together.’
