Vertonghen backing for Kane

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen belives Harry Kane is not a guy who will just have one good season after an underwhelminig start to the current campaign.

England international Kane enjoyed a breakout season for Spurs last term, netting 31 goals in all competitions, including 21 in the Premier League, as Mauricio Pochettino's side claimed a fifth-place finish.

Kane has started the campaign in unconvincing fashion and is yet to find the back of the net in the Premier League this season but Vertonghen is confident the striker will soon be back amongst the goals.

"He has just been a bit unlucky. He scored for England and in the training sessions he has been doing very well, so the goals will come," Vertonghen told the Evening Standard.

"He's not a guy who will just have one good season and then you never see him again. He has the qualities to perform and the goals will come eventually."
