Harry Kane discusses future
Heading into Euro 2024, Harry Kane will be nearing 31 years of age. The now Bayern Munich striker is England’s top goalscorer with 59 goals going into the October internationals in just 86 caps.
However, with Kane getting on in years, there is some who are beginning to doubt he can continue to lead from the front with England.
Kane himself, though, believes he can contiue playing for another eight or nine years: “The perception in sport or football in general is you hit 30 and people start to think it is the end.
“But the way I am looking at it is that I almost have the second half of my career. I played in the first team at Spurs from 20 or 21 so I have had nine or 10 years at the highest level and I am hoping for another eight or nine years at the highest level again.
“When you look at a lot of the top-level players - Ronaldo, Messi, Lewandowski, Ibrahimovic — they have almost got better as they hit 30. In a lot of sports that happens as well. Everything is maybe settled in your personal life. You have got family, you have got kids — so that side is all settled.
“You are comfortable with your body, you are comfortable mentally where you are at and that just allows you to focus on the football. I just want to keep playing. I think, with everything, with recovery, sports science and the way the game has been and adapted, it has allowed players to play for longer.
