‘Totally involved in this project’ – Conte opens on Harry Kane’s happiness at Spurs – Spurs Web
Antonio Conte insisted that Harry Kane is happy and fully involved with the ongoing project at Tottenham, adding that the striker can see the club are heading in the right direction.
It comes after Alasdair Gold of Football.London revealed recently that Spurs have no intention of selling their star striker, while Kane himself is open to talks over a potential new contract.
Spurs enjoyed a winning start to the Premier League season yesterday with a 4-1 victory over Southampton, and although Kane was not on the scoresheet he presented expert centre-forward play.
He certainly seemed happy to be back on the pitch at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when he took to Twitter to react to the result.
Conte also spoke of the need for ambition at Tottenham if they are to achieve “something big” in north London, which will surely be music to Harry Kane’s ears.
Conte said (Football London): “Harry, I see him very happy, totally involved in this project, in this process with the team and with the club.
“It’s very important because you know very well the importance of this player for the teammates, for the fans, for the club, for me and for my staff.
“I like to see him like this with this desire, this desire to work hard. I think he is the first player to understand that we are going in the right direction. So for sure, I would like this season to have the best satisfaction with my players.
“I think you had to be ambitious because ambition is important if that ambition is positive, not presumptuous or arrogant. This ambition should lead us to give 120% of our capacity.
“The will and the desire to improve, and to try to do something important for the club, for ourselves, for the fans, but for me the best objective this season will be to be better than the last season. If we do that, I think we can be competitive until the end.

Harry Kane is looking over the moon with the current project at Spurs. He has a world-class manager, is surrounded by world-class talent and the club is finally pumping money into the team. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new contract is signed in the next six months.
