England Captain Harry Kane Planning to End his Football Career

Author : OsidhaTodayBureau | Posted on: 2019-03-28

England captain Harry Kane has his heart set on ending his playing career in the United States kicking field goals for a team in the National Football League (NFL).

He has revealed his plans to swap football for American football, and end his sporting career as a kicker in the NFL.

Kane, the top scorer at last year’s FIFA World Cup, has long been an admirer of American football and believes successfully switching sports late in his career will help him go down in history as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time.

In an interview the Tottenham Hotspur striker told ESPN, “It (The desire to play in the NFL) is real, something that I definitely want to try in 10 or 12 years”.

He questions his credibility whether he could still be considered as one of the greatest sportsman ever if he simultaneously played all the three leagues (Premier League, World Cup and NFL).

In 2012, with Tottenham under new leadership, Kane was transferred back to the Spurs and earned his first start. He scored in three straight matches and started every game for the rest of the season, cementing his place in a Premier League lineup. In 2014, he started a four-year streak of scoring at least 20 goals per Premier League season to place his name among international soccer’s stars.

The path from European football to the United States is a well-travelled one, with the likes of David Beckham, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard all ending up in America’s top soccer league (MLS), but Kane wants to blaze his own trail.
