Joe Hart been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur team-mate Harry Kane, calling him essentially faultless, as reported by BBC Sport.

Former Manchester City goalkeeper Hart, who joined Spurs this summer on a free, was in the England camp when Kane was first called up in 2015, but has a renewed appreciation for his ability now they’re at the same club.

Kane, 27, has scored five and assisted eight in the league so far, achieving a record total of 13 goal involvements in the first six Premier League games.

And 75-cap international Hart also commended the striker’s leadership on the field.

Joe Hart: Harry Kane is a special player

“He has always had that ability,” he said.

“I struggle to find a fault with Harry. He is absolutely brilliant. Every single pass, every single shot, every single decision.

“He is such a team player. His leadership is doing it, which is often more important than being vocal.


“We have seen how selfless he is. He is a special player and I love being in the same team as him.”

Hart on trusting Jose Mourinho

Joe Hart added that canny Portuguese boss Mourinho was taking Spurs forward in the aim for their first trophy since 2008.

Hart continued: “Jose is very clever at how he works the media. He is a different guy in his own environment, with his own players; he asks you to give your best and show your quality.

“We are moving in the right direction. There is a big difference between saying you want to win something and doing the right things to put yourself in the best position to win.”

In the All or Nothing Amazon documentary, Mourinho told Kane, who has long been linked with Real Madrid, he could help him ‘explode’ onto the hughest level of football globally.

And Kane has taken that on board, starting this season with a prolific 10 goals in 10 games in all competitions.
