Early Life and family background of Harry Kane

Harry Edward Kane was born in Walthamstow, London, on July 28, 1993. His father is from Galway, Ireland, so he has Irish heritage. His parents, Kim (nee Hogg) and Patrick Kane, have an older son named Charlie.
Kane went to Larkswood Primary Academy until 2004, when they moved to Chingford. After that, he attended Chingford Foundation School, which David Beckham attended. Harry started playing football at a young age. When he was six, he joined a neighborhood team called the Ridgeway Rovers.

Kane’s athletic genes come from his mother’s side of the family, though this is a hotly debated topic in the Kane home. Kane’s great-grandfather, Eric, on his mother’s side, was a good player who played at a decent level.
Most of Kane’s family were Spurs fans, so it was obvious that he would always be a Spurs fan. Teddy Sheringham, a former striker for Spurs, was his youth hero. He saw him as a “great finisher” and a role model for his ability to get into the box and score goals.


Youth Career

Kane started out playing for a neighborhood club called Ridgeway Rovers. When he was eight years old, he joined the Arsenal youth school. Liam Brady was in charge of Arsenal’s academy then, said he was let go after one season because he was “a bit chubby” and “not very athletic.” In November 2015, manager Arsène Wenger said he was sad that Arsenal let Kane go. He also tried out for Tottenham Hotspur, but at first, it didn’t work out, so he returned to his old team, Ridgeway Rovers.

Kane started as a midfielder at Tottenham, first in a holding role and then as an attacking midfielder. In 2004, when he was 11, he joined the Watford school for a four- to six-week trial. And after an impressive performance, he was given another chance at Tottenham.

Kane didn’t stand out as a player when he first started at Tottenham because he wasn’t very big or fast, but those who worked with him noticed that he was always trying to get better at different parts of his game.
During the 2008–09 season, he played for the under-16 team in the Copa Chivas tournament in Mexico and the Bellinzona tournament in Switzerland, where he scored three goals. On his sixteenth birthday, in July 2009, he signed a scholarship deal with Tottenham. Kane played 22 games for Tottenham’s under-18 team in 2009–10, hitting 18 goals.

From loan Spell to Professional Contract to Failed Transfer(To Manchester City)

Harry Kane signed a deal with Tottenham in July 2010 to begin his professional career. Kane joined Leyton Orient on loan on January 7, 2011, and stayed there until the end of the 2010–11 season. He played his first game for Orient’s first team on January 15, when he replaced Scott McGleish in the 73rd minute of a match that ended in a 1-1 draw at Rochdale. Kane scored his first goal for the first team against Sheffield Wednesday a week later. He scored five goals in 18 games to end the season.

He played his first game for Tottenham on August 25, 2011, and on December 29, 2011, Kane and his Tottenham partner Ryan Mason decided to join Millwall on loan from January 1, 2012, until the end of the season. He scored seven goals in the last 14 games of the season. Kane got nine goals in 27 matches, which made him Millwall’s Young Player of the Year for 2011–12.
Kane returned to Tottenham and was with the team in preparation for the 2012–13 season. He played his first game in the Premier League on August 18 against Newcastle United.

Kane joined Norwich City on loan for a season on August 31, 2012. He debuted as a substitute against West Ham United. But since Tottenham couldn’t sign a new striker during the January transfer window, they decided to bring Kane back on February 1, 2013, four months before he was supposed to return to the club.
Twenty days after returning to Tottenham, Kane joined Leicester City to help them win the Premier League and avoid relegation to the Championship.

There was a disagreement before the 2021–22 season because Kane wanted to leave Tottenham and said he had a deal with chairman Daniel Levy that let him go in the summer. The agreement wasn’t kept, and Levy turned down Manchester City’s interest in Kane, which included a £127 million trade bid. Kane announced on August 25 that he wanted to stay at Tottenham after the move to Manchester City fell through. He said, “I will stay at Tottenham this summer and put all my energy into helping the team win.”

Kane did not attend preseason training or play in the season’s first two games. His goal against Brighton on March 16 earned him 95 Premier League goals away from home, breaking Wayne Rooney’s record for most goals scored away from home in the Premier League.

Kane was also qualified to play for the Republic of Ireland because his father was born in Galway, but in August 2014, he decided to play for England because he dreamt of playing for the England senior team.

His dream became a reality when he got called up to the England team by manager Roy Hodgson on March 19, 2015, to play against Lithuania in a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match and Italy in a friendly. Kane had been in good form with Tottenham and was the third-leading scorer in the Premier League with 16 goals. He made his England debut at Wembley Stadium against Lithuania when he replaced Wayne Rooney in the second half.

Style of play

Kane is a strong striker, and his style of play has been compared to former Tottenham player Jürgen Klinsmann. In February 2015, Kane said that the comparison was complimentary. Early in his career, he was criticized for not being very good in the air and not being very fast. However, as he progressed in his career, he got better with his head.

David Pleat, who used to be the boss of Tottenham, called Kane an “old-fashioned traditional center-forward.” Clive Allen, who coached him at Tottenham, said, “One thing I’d say about him that you wouldn’t know about many young players is that he loved the game. He loves football, playing it, and making goals.
