"We've had a similar path being doubted when we were younger — maybe not being the best athletes as kids," he said.

The World Cup Golden boot winner did not have it easy growing up and was turned down by top clubs including Arsenal who rejected him in 2004 claiming he was too short and small to play.
Kane is now viewed as one of the best front men currently playing in world football having netted 164 goals in 249 appearances for Tottenham.
The striker has helped Tottenham from top six hopefuls to regular Champions League qualifiers as they are also in the quarterfinals of the 2018/19 Champions League.
