He first played as a midfielder in a holding position, then as an attacking midfielder.
He did not stand out as a player in his early days at the club, as he was not big nor was he particularly quick, but those who worked with him at the club noted his constant desire to improve various aspects of his game. He played in the under-16s side in the 08–09 season, as they competed in the Copa Chivas tournament in Mexico, and the Bellinzona tournament in Switzerland, scoring three goals.

He scored his first-team goal against Sheffield Wednesday.
In the 11/12 season, Kane started in the second leg of Tottenham’s UEFA Europa League qualification round against Hearts. He also made six appearances in the Europa League that season, scoring his first Tottenham goal in the 4–0 win away to Shamrock Rovers on 15 December 2011.

He was given his first Premier League start for Tottenham on 7th April 2014, in a 5–1 win against Sunderland, and scored his first Premier League goal in the 59th minute of the match. He scored his first professional hat-trick for Tottenham on 23 October 2014, in a 5–1 win over Asteras Tripoli in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.
In January 2015, Kane was named as the Premier League Player of the Month as a result of his performances. He also signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract with Tottenham on 2nd February 2015.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane judged in an extreme way, says Mauricio Pochettino
Adopted from: theguardian.com
Published: 9th November 2018
Mauricio Pochettino has described Harry Kane as an “assassin” in front of goal, as he reflected on the striker’s enduring finishing excellence and the tendency of English football fans to lurch from one extreme to the other in their analysis of England players.
Kane has had his form and fitness questioned this season, having led England to the World Cup semi-finals in the summer and then, after a three-week holiday, gone straight into the new Premier League campaign. He has started in all of Tottenham’s league and Champions League fixtures.
The assessment of Kane has largely mirrored that of his team – good, at times, but still to really click. And yet, almost under the radar, he took his tally to 10 from 15 matches in all competitions on Tuesday with the late goals that secured the 2-1 Champions League win over PSV Eindhoven.
“Harry is a killer, an assassin,” Pochettino said, before the visit to Crystal Palace on Saturday. “He’s always in practice and he wants to kill the keeper. You need to stop him from training because he always wants to train. He is so obsessed with scoring that sometimes, when it is against him, he needs more freedom – not to be obsessed. But he is going to learn and he is starting to be really mature.
“Kane is English and sometimes you push him to the sky and paradise and then you put him on the outside. If Harry was Italian and playing for the Italian side, he would be a bit more protected because the Italian people are more protective of their players. It’s difficult to push them but when they are there, they try to keep them up there. It’s similar in Spain. Here, it is more up and down.”
Pochettino sees parallels between Kane and his former Argentina teammate Gabriel Batistuta. “His mentality is similar. Maybe Harry is going to improve on Batistuta’s stats. I know Batistuta very well and I know Harry. They are of a similar mind, focus and determination.”
