'Everyone's fed up' with Kane amid BBC update on Tottenham star - pundit
Paul Robinson expects Tottenham striker Harry Kane will return to his best form after the international break.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one suggested the 28-year-old will benefit from the fact that “everyone is fed up” of talking about his future.
Kane has failed to score in his six Premier League appearances this season.
The England captain, who was on the bench in tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Andorra, was the Premier League’s standout performer in the previous campaign.
He contributed 23 goals and 14 assists in the league – more than any other player in both respects.
As reported by the BBC on Friday, such form has led to Kane being named on the shortlist for the 2021 Ballon d’Or.

When asked when fans could expect to see Kane back to his devastating best, Robinson told Football Insider:
“There was a couple of chances against Villa that you would have expected to him to take. He’s been out of form this season, there’s no two ways about it.
“Things are starting to settle down a bit now though which should help. Everyone is fed up of talking about him and his future. As he is settling down his performances are improving.
“He has not been at his best since before the Euros. There are signs of improvement but there is definitely a lot more to come from him.
“The international break will help him. I think he’ll get a few goals under his belt for England and then return to Spurs at his best.”
