Harry Kane’s summer heartbreak

It is safe to say that Harry Kane cuts a miserable figure in north London at the moment.

Robbed of what he felt a well deserved move to Manchester City in the summer, when he believed he had a gentleman’s agreement with Daniel Levy, he has verbally committed to Tottenham for the season but is yet to do so on the pitch.

It can be seen in the goalscoring charts too, with Kane having netted just once in the Premier League to date, although he has scored several in the Europa Conference League.

Matters came to a head on Saturday, when Harry Kane was turned on by the Tottenham crowd inside their new stadium every time he lost the ball, or failed to provide the right pass during Tottenham attacks.

However, a change of coach may change matters for the England captain.

Has Conte already revealed his plan for Harry Kane?

The appointment of Antonio Conte to the position of Tottenham’s head coach was only confirmed hours ago, but the Italian may have already outlined his plan for star man Harry Kane, and how to get him back among the goals in north London.

It has already been revealed that Harry Kane is very excited to work with the incoming man, who he feels shares his passion for success. And Conte could have a plan for him.

Speaking as a pundit for Euro 2020, Conte revealed how he would use Kane should he ever coach him, saying:

“Many praise Harry Kane for his ability to go get the ball and play with the team, such as with the equaliser against Denmark.

“But it’s in the box where he’s clinical and as a coach, I would always keep him in there because he’s devastating.”

Now linking up with the England captain, it seems based on his previous comments that he will ask Kane to stop dropping so deep in search of the ball, something that he has done with regularity under previous management, as can be seen below.

As shown above, Kane dropping deep leaves Spurs with very few options ahead of him, which blunts their attacks.

Instead, Kane will be tasked with operating for the most part as a penalty box striker, which should increase his goal output as the creative burden will lie elsewhere, namely with the full-backs and central midfielders. This worked wonders for Romelu Lukaku, who netted 30 times for Inter Milan in 44 appearances this way last season.

Could it prove to be the spark Kane needs too?
