Harry Kane has credited work with a brand new physio for being in the most effective situation he has ever been, as he spoke of how a hamstring harm in January 2020 sparked a career-changing re-assessment of his strategy. The England captain has not had a serious problem since then, regardless of beforehand affected by repeated ankle accidents that had a knock-on impact.
While Kane wouldn’t title his new physio, solely admitting he’s Spanish, he was effusive in regards to the outcomes. The striker stated he got here throughout him by an athlete pal, and works with him individually from Tottenham – however that the membership clearly find out about it.
“I really feel nice – put it that means. Whether it’s the fittest I’ve been I don’t know however I really feel actually good.
“I did my hamstring in January towards Southampton away on New Year’s Day  and since then I’ve truly discovered this new physio and we have been working collectively since, for almost three years now. He’s been actually nice for me, we have labored for hours and hours over the three years, constructed up a very good relationship and I really feel like he is actually helped me get my physique…
“I’ll use him possibly one week of the month. He would not dwell within the UK so he comes over one week a month and stays with me.
“I’ve seen changes in my body in terms of what my ankles were like before and now after. I’m in a totally different place. So it’s really pleasing, I’ve kept that under the radar. Not now! It’s the first time you guys have asked me to be fair.”
Kane admitted that injury issues were getting to him.
“I wasn’t anxious but I was frustrated. Whenever you’re trying to put a good season together, you’re on good form and you consistently get the same kind of injuries – I kept getting ankle injuries and that led to a bigger hamstring injury. So I think as I’ve got older and more mature, you learn more about your body and how your body adapts to stuff, when you can push and when you should not push too hard. So you learn as you go on, and I’ve definitely learnt really well over the last few years about my body and myself. That’s helped me to consistently play at the level I have.
“I was at a period in my career where I was struggling to play consistently throughout a season. Especially when you come up to major tournaments, it’s great to know your body is in a good place. Of course, you can get injured at any moment, whether it’s a tackle or a bad movement but I think when you’re free in your mind and you’ve been playing consistently for a while, it definitely helps with your mindset going into the seasons and major tournaments.”
Kane in the meantime insisted that the goalscoring type of Erling Haaland hasn’t offered any further motivation. He’s too single-minded for that.
“Everyone’s talking about Haaland because he’s had an incredible start to the season, so rightly so. As you know me, I don’t focus on too many other people, I focus on myself and what I can do. We’ve had a good start to the season with Spurs, we probably haven’t played our best football but that’s a good sign to be where we are knowing we can improve. And it’s probably one of the best starts I’ve had in the Premier League.”
