Tottenham striker Harry Kane believes that the players cannot be happier to be working under Antonio Conte despite their mixed run of results in the Premier League. Spurs have lacked consistency under Conte and find themselves six points behind arch-rivals Arsenal having played one more game. Kane agreed with Conte that the rebuild at the club will not take place overnight and will need time.

“Obviously I still feel like we’re in a process. We went two or three years challenging for trophies then we dropped off over the last couple of years. With Antonio, he’s building a culture that he wants to be and wants to put us back in that place,” Harry Kane said about Antonio Conte. “The Premier League, it’s such fine lines between challenging or being top four or being the sixth, seventh or eighth. Every team is getting better and there are no easy games. Of course, the manager is working as hard as he can and the players are working. It’s not a quick fix that happens overnight, it takes time and understanding. He needs to talk to the club and chairman and to see what direction we need to go as a club. We can’t speak highly enough of him.”

“I’m the first to look at my own standards. In the Premier League, towards the first few months or so I wasn’t at the standard that I was always reaching,” he added. “It was no time to panic or sulk, it was a time to work hard and since Antonio’s come in, we’ve had a good understanding with each other. As a player, if you’re improving under a coach, that’s the most important thing. It’s when you’re there and not sure where you’re going and where the club’s going and that’s the hardest part as a player.”
