Harry Kane: “When I Was 11 Defoe Stopped His Car To Play Football With Me”

And just like that I have a new found respect for Jermaine Defoe. Imagine if you were a kid playing footy on the streets and a professional soccer player stopped to play with you? That would go down as one of the top five moments in my life. It is hard to quantify how much that affected Harry Kane’s development into a world-class professional soccer player but I bet it had at least a little effect on who he became. It’s also an extra dash of class that Defoe gave his number to Kane when he left the club. What a great guy who clearly saw the potential of Harry Kane before many of us got to see it play out on the pitch.
