What did Harry Kane say in the interview?
Speaking to FourFourTwo, Kane said: “It was a bit of a mad experience to be honest. I didn’t really know what to expect, as I’d been at Spurs for 19 years and was really happy there. So I was stepping out of my comfort zone – it was a first for me to feel how these transfers happen, and to be a part of one.
“Last season, all I focused on was Tottenham and trying to help the club finish as high as possible in the table. Once the season finished, I spoke to Spurs and explained that I felt it was time to move on and push myself as far as possible. I then went away on holiday and that’s when talks started progressing. I was confident the clubs would eventually come to an agreement."
“I woke up on the Saturday morning, went straight to training, met all the players for the first time, then we had the game that night. I was at the airport just the previous afternoon. Like I said, it was mad. “Those first few days felt like joining a new school. Putting faces to names, introducing yourself, everyone asking how you are. I’ve faced a lot of the lads in the past, so it was nice to get to know them all personally. It was a bit surreal, but I was itching to get going.”
