'Football Ain't About Money' - Harry Kane Gives Spurs Big Boost After Walker Departure

'Football Ain't About Money' - Harry Kane Gives Spurs Big Boost After Walker Departure
By James Carroll

Harry Kane has been on an upward trajectory ever since his breakout season under manager Mauricio Pochettino which resulted in the England establishing himself as one of the best strikers in Europe, and going on to top the scoring charts of the Premier League for the previous two seasons.

Spurs are currently in Orlando on their pre-season tour which will see them face Roma and Manchester City in the International Champions Cup in the coming days - The England striker scored last night as Tottenham beat PSG 4-2.

While Stateside, Kane sat down to speak with Dan Thomas of ESPN FC for a very engaging interview, in which they spoke about his future and ambitions with Spurs.

When Kane was asked if money was a big motivation for him after Kyle Walkers move away from White Hart Lane, he gave the Spurs fans exactly what they wanted to hear:

No not at all, I think football for me ain't about money, and I don't think it is for a lot of players. It is what it is, people go to different clubs for different reasons - I'm very much at Tottenham because I love this club, I see it going in a great direction, I feel like we are one of the best teams in England and in Europe as well, so I'm excited for the future ahead.

He's clearly in no rush to leave, and it's understandable, not just for his form on the pitch.

Kane is very much happy in his native London, and just last month he announced that he will be a father in the near future:

He's even got dogs to rival those of Alexis Sanchez.

NFL fans questioned whether the England international's labradors were named after two Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, and it turns out they are. Well, one of them at least:

Tom Brady was on of my big inspirations, so I named one of the dogs 'Brady' and the other one was actually my fiancee's choice, she actually just liked the name 'Wilson' and as soon as she said it, I was like; 'definitely, we will go with that one.' Obviously everyone now thinks that its for Tom Brady and Russell Wilson but it is actually just Tom Brady and she chose the other one.

Kane is not what many would perceive as your stereotypical footballer, rarely, if ever is he in the tabloids and from the interview, family and his football are all that he focuses on.

Premier League defenders better be prepared for the upcoming season as Kane will be chasing an unprecedented third golden boot in a row.
