Harry Kane reveals how Antonio Conte has taken his game 'to another level'

Harry Kane has heaped praise on Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte for the impact he's had on the club and his own development.

Conte arrived at Spurs in November 2021 with their season in tatters after a poor start under Nuno Espirito Santo. However, the Italian managed to get a tune out of his charges and after an impressive end to the campaign, they secured a top-four finish at the expense of bitter rivals Arsenal.

Kane wanted to leave Tottenham last summer and began the 2021/22 season in dreadful form, but after Conte's arrival, only teammate Son Heung-min scored more Premier League goals over the remainder of the campaign.

Speaking to football.london, Kane revealed that the two notable aspects of his game that have improved under Conte have been his fitness and mentality.

"Antonio has been fantastic. I’ve learned from every manager I’ve worked under. Antonio has probably taken fitness levels to another level for me," Kane said.

"The mentality, being with him every day seeing the way he prepares, the way he brings his passion and brings the best out of the lads, I’ve learnt from that.

"I feel like I’m learning every year anyway and getting more experience and getting better, but with someone like Antonio it’s speeding up that process even quicker. I feel in good shape. There’s still work to do in the next month in this pre-season. I feel like I’ve still got a lot more to give and hopefully I can show that next year.

"I think he’s just brought a real intensity to training every day. Every manager has different processes, different way of training, different types of a week schedule. Antonio likes to work, he likes to be out on the training on the pitch for however long he wants to and make sure we’re well prepared going into each game.

"I just feel like that I’m at that stage in my career where I want to keep pushing and keep improving. It was good to see how my fitness levels changed over that period when he first came in. It just made me want to continue that and do as much as possible as to keep improving."

90min has reported that Kane is indeed loving life at Spurs under Conte and is open to signing a new contract with the club due to his influence.
