Tottenham’s star striker has said he hopes to emulate the career of Roma and Italy legend Francesco Totti after revealing him as his idol.
Totti, who had a 25-year long career in senior football, spent the entirety of his time with the side from Italy’s capital, scoring 307 goals in 786 appearances across all competitions, while he picked up 58 caps and netted nine times for his national side.
Now Kane, who came through Tottenham’s youth academy as Totti did at Roma, has said that the 41-year-old’s achievements are a huge influence on his own career and he hopes to follow in his footsteps, in a revelation which will give Spurs fans hope of seeing him remain with the north London side for the foreseeable future.
He told the press at the pre-match conference ahead of the Juventus clash on Tuesday, as quoted by football365.com, “He (Totti) was a fantastic player and to spend your career at one club is an amazing achievement.
“He achieved probably everything he wanted to at that club.
“He was a fantastic striker and growing up I watched his goals. He had an amazing career and hopefully one day I can have the same.”
Kane has become a firm fans’ favourite since breaking into the senior side, and the Tottenham faithful will love hearing him speak about the possibility of remaining as a one-club man during his playing career.
He has 198 appearances under his belt for the Lilywhites, scoring at an impressive rate with 131 goals during that time, which has helped him to two successive Premier League golden boot awards and he has netted over 20 goals in each of the last four league campaigns.
