March 28 – England captain Harry Kane has revealed he wants to end his career by switching sports and trying to become an NFL star as a kicker.
The Tottenham striker, a New England Patriots fan, watched them win a sixth Super Bowl in Atlanta in February.
“The desire to play in the NFL is real. It’s something that in 10 or 12 years I definitely want to try,” the Tottenham striker told ESPN.
“If you play in the Premier League and the World Cup and you then play in the NFL, would you then be considered one of the greatest sportsmen ever?”
Kane, who has won 37 England caps, won the Golden Boot at the 2018 World Cup and has met Tom Brady, the 41-year-old Patriots quarterback who has won a record six Super Bowls.
“We’ve had a similar path being doubted when we were younger – maybe not being the best athletes as kids,” Kane said. “Not many people thought he’d become that good or even play in the NFL and he went on to become the best ever.”
