Harry Kane is a passionate fan of American football. Recently, the England striker has revealed his dream of playing in the American football league.
In an interview with ESPN, the Tottenham striker confirmed his desire to play in American football league.
Being only 25 years old, Harry Kane is increasingly playing an important role in both Tottenham and England. Is this the time when Kane suddenly becomes the star of the Three Lions?
“That’s true,” Harry Kane said of his wish to play in the NFL. “I can move to play there in the next 10-12 years. If I play in the Premier League, World Cup and then play American football in the NFL, I can be considered the greatest sports athlete of all time”, continued Harry Kane.
Harry Kane likes to play American football
Harry Kane said his motivation to play in the NFL stems from watching players like Tom Brady play. According to Kane, Tom Brady is his idol. There is a common point between Kane and Brady that when they were young, they were not appreciated but after that, they both achieved success.
“Not many people think Brady will become an outstanding American football player or even play in the NFL but he became the greatest football player. That really gave me motivation. Looking at him, that’s proof that anything can happen. If you have faith in yourself, desire and motivation, you can do it”, continued Harry Kane.
This season, Harry Kane has scored 17 goals in 26 Premier League appearances. With what was stated, Harry Kane could switch to playing American football after leaving his career. In American football, there is a position where the kicker is very suitable for Harry Kane. However, players in this position are often paid very low compared to players in other positions (about 1 million USD / year). However, Harry Kane also confirmed that his desire to play American football is not for money.
