Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte drops a truth bomb on Harry Kane’s minutes amid his poor form for the club.
This season, Kane is far from his potential, scoring only one goal across 12 fixtures. Many football fans are questioning whether or not Kane should start every game, but still, Conte has a ton of faith in his player.

“If I answer in an honest way, to start a game without Harry now is a bit difficult for me,” he said.
“It’s a bit difficult for me. Honestly, we are talking about an important player for us, an important player for all.”
“Now in this moment, honestly, I don’t see this team starting without Harry.”
For a star striker like Kane, who is used to scoring an abundance of goals, one would think that Conte would be very critical with his form. Yet, the manager stresses that he believes that Kane is benefiting the team despite the lack of goals scored.
“I always like to be honest with my players, and if I wasn’t satisfied with Harry’s performances, for sure I would tell him,” Tottenham’s boss added.
“But I repeat: I’m very satisfied with his performances – he is playing well and doing fantastic work for the team.”
As Tottenham sits outside the top four with 22 points, will they have a resurgence with Conte as their new coach?
