Harry Kane full of praise for under-fire Tottenham team-mate

Tottenham forward Harry Kane was quick to lavish praise on under-fore team-mate Erik Lamela following the North London side’s impressive 4-1 win over Man City over the weekend.

Kane himself ended a goal-scoring drought during the big home win but singled out Argentine Lamela for his efforts during the clash with big-spending opposition.

“I’m very pleased for him,” Kane said in quotes covered by

“He’s taken some criticism over the last year or so but since he’s come in he’s shown, especially this season, what a player he can be.

“He’s done very well, he worked hard for the team [against City] up and down the pitch and I’m delighted for him to get his goal”.

As well as scoring Lamela was involved in two of Tottenham’s other goals and will hope that the superb performance is the first of many as the former AS Roma man looks to justify the club record £30m invested in his services two years ago.
