Harry Kane, who forced an own goal in the 3-2 Europa Conference League win over Vitesse on Thursday night, is once again energised by Antonio Conte’s arrival at Tottenham
Harry Kane has praised Tottenham’s “ambition” to capture Antonio Conte and suggested he is now ready to stay at the club.
The England captain has scored just once in his last six matches and has cut a disconsolate figure since being denied his dream move to Manchester City in the summer.
But Kane, who forced an own goal in the 3-2 Europa Conference League win over Vitesse on Thursday night, is once again energised by Conte’s arrival.
The striker said: “It shows great ambition to be honest. His resume speaks for itself, everyone knows how highly thought of he is and what he has done as a manager in the game.
“You have to respect that. He will work as hard as he can to improve us as players but it is about us as players, taking it in, learning, doing more on the pitch, doing more in training, doing more away from training — whether it is recovery or anything like that.

“And making sure we give ourselves every opportunity to win. We have a manager and a club that believe in us and the disappointment definitely shows that.”
Conte has vowed to make Spurs stronger in the same way that he inspired Inter Milan to success in Italy.
Kane maintained the vow is music to his ears following his desperation to address his trophy drought.
“It has only been three days but he is a fantastic manager,” he said.
“We haven’t reached the standards we have wanted to over the last couple of years, but we hope that this manager can help us turn it around.
“It’s about us and how we take it in because he has done it, he has nothing to prove.
“He has done it on the biggest stage with the biggest teams so he will give us everything he has to improve us and now it is down to us as players to have no excuses.
“We have to make sure every minute of our lives we are trying to improve and win for this team and that is the only way we are going to move forward.”
Spurs have lost five of their last seven Premier League games and sit ninth in the table. Kane is ready to answer his critics in the coming weeks with a return to the form that landed him three Golden Boots.
He went on: “I am a player that always believes in myself and always believes in my ability.
Is Antonio Conte a good appointment for Tottenham? Give your verdict below!
“I am 28 years old, I have still got a lot to learn, a lot to improve on. It’s not been the start I wanted, the team wanted or the club wanted so we all know that.
“We all have to take responsibility for that as players. It is not something I am worried about, I will keep working and I am really excited about working with this manager.
“I am sure he can improve me and that is an exciting thing. When you have done what I have done in the game so far and still feel like there is more to come, that is definitely exciting so I am looking forward to it.”
