The Spurs star has been in scintillating form this season and has just earned his first England call-up as a result. Pele has offered some advice to Kane and compliments don’t come much better than from Brazil’s all-time leading goalscorer.
“I think he is an excellent young player,” Pele told Press Association Sport. “He could be a good one for the English team.”
Kane added a further three goals to his season tally with a hat-trick in this afternoon’s 4-3 home win over Leicester City in the Premier League, proving once more that he is worthy of Pele’s comments.
He has now scored an astonishing 29 goals in all competitions this term, 19 of those in the league.
But Pele thinks Kane has to remain grounded if he is to continue to improve as a player.
“Tell him never think he can be the best. Always he has something to learn. That is my advice.”
Kane is quickly being regarded as one of the best players in the country and has now scored more Premier League goals this season than any other striker.
His confidence is sky-high and he showed his cool once again to slot home from the penalty spot to complete his hat-trick at White Hart Lane this afternoon.
Kane has a great chance of winning this season’s Golden Boot and will be itching to make his England debut, looking to shine on the international stage in the coming week.
