Premier League Star Plans to Join NFL as Kicker After Soccer Career

Sunday, 31 Mar, 2019

The Tottenham man insists it is a very real ambition and says his competitive drive prompts him to believe he could challenge the all-time greats by making the cut in two sports.

"Of course, we want to go on to the next level and win the Premier League, and win trophies", he said.

Captain Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Christian Eriksen, Son Heung-min and Jan Vertonghen were among those to get acquainted with their new surroundings, where the home dressing room has leather seats with personalised screens and a charging point.

Spurs return to Premier League action on Sunday looking to bury a barren run which has spelt danger to their hopes of finishing in the top four.

Meanwhile, Hary Kane signed a six-year contract extension last year June while his Spurs boss Pochettino also extended to 2023.

But Kane's love for the gridiron game stretches past mere fandom, as he explained in an interview with ESPN this week.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane sees his future in the NFL.

Kane, joined by his partner Kate Goodland and his parents, was presented with his gong by president of the Football Association Prince William as recognition for winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup in Russian Federation previous year.

Kane added that he is inspired by Tom Brady's drive.

"Not many people thought he'd become that good, or even play in the National Football League, and he went on to become the best ever", said Kane.

A defeat to Liverpool could see Tottenham drop to fourth in the table, depending on Arsenal's result against Newcastle on Monday, and Pochettino has admitted a lack of success this season could make things hard for Spurs to hang on to their best players in the summer.

"I think it is awesome, everyone was surprised by the magnitude of the project", said Pochettino. We've got some great young players and an unbelievable manager. "Hopefully it never happens again but if it did, I would take their lead on that and whatever they wanted, we would support them".

"I think the most important thing is we want to win the game", he told Press Association Sport.
