He has been married to his childhood sweetheart,

Katie Goodland

since 2017. The two have two daughters and one son. It is certainly interesting to know more about Harry Kane quotes on his own childhood, personality and private life.

On his childhood, family life and kids

I think the sporting genes come from my Mum's side of the family although the topic is a hot debate in the Kane household. Dad probably won't like me saying that, but I think my granddad Eric on my Mum's side was quite a good footballer, and played at a decent level.

Most of my family were Spurs fans and I grew up 15 minutes from the ground, so I was always going to be a Spurs fan.

To go out at Wembley and score is what you dream about as a kid.

I remember washing Robbie Keane's boots and asking him a few questions. Its stuff you remember as a kid. You take that on and make sure you're a bit hungrier to go on and do what they've achieved.

I remember the European Championships in 2004.

Wayne Rooney

was a special player in that tournament, and I definitely cried when we got knocked out then.

I've been to Wembley a couple of times to see England, but the match which stands out for me is the 2008 Carling Cup final against Chelsea. I was there as a fan with the family. That was a great day out.

When I was growing up, Keane and Sheringham were my idols, and they wore 10. So it was always my dream to wear it.

I went to see England against Switzerland at Wembley with my dad and brother, too. That was in 2008, Fabio Capello's first game in charge. Jermaine Jenas scored, and we won 2-1. I remember the national anthem was incredible. I sang it with pride - always do.

I watched all the games in the pub with my family. We used to go to a place called The Sirloin in Chingford. It was quite a good atmosphere in there.

Beckham was a great inspiration to me growing up.

I owe a lot to my family; we're a strong unit.

It's harder to be angry at home when we lose. When it was just me and the missus, she didn't mind. She'd take the wrath of the loss! But it's harder when there's a little baby now.

We went to school together, so she's seen my whole career. Of course, she's finding it a little crazy. I think she's even been in the papers a couple of times taking the dogs out.

Now we've got a little daughter; I and the missus won't talk about football as much.

On his hobbies and preferences

Obviously, everyone's different, but I love just settling down and having a barbecue with my friends at the house.

My biggest weakness is steak. I have to be careful not to eat too much of it these days - but I do love it done medium rare, with peppercorn sauce.

I love going to the Algarve and playing golf.

On his personality, Believes and objectives

When times are down, keep believing, keep working hard, and things will pick up.

You come up against challenges in life, and its how you deal with them that defines you.

I am confident in my ability, as I always have been, and that I will be capable of maintaining my form, if not improving, year in, year out.

Money is a bonus of the job, but it doesn't always make you happy.

It is about that self-belief, that self-drive, that has got me to where I am now.

I will always try to be as normal as I can. Obviously, there may have to be some limits with it, but I am still a fan at heart and want to live like a normal person.

I think self-belief is a massive thing in football. If you don't believe in yourself, not many others will. Work hard and believe in yourself, and I think you'll go as far as your body will take you.

All I can do is my best for the team, whether that's from the bench or if I start.

I was a fan once, and I remember what it was like approaching footballers for their autographs. I used to get starstruck a lot of the time.

I do a lot of body weight stuff, power work, with your legs as well. There are weights involved now and again. There is a bit of mixture.

I am motivated by trying to win trophies.

I take it season by season. I don't like looking too far ahead, because you never know what can happen.

I've always wanted to be a footballer, and I've always believed that's the path I was going to go down.

I'm always disappointed when I don't score.

Personally, I love training, and getting paid to play football is incredible. Playing the game and working hard is what I have always dreamed of doing.

I try never to get too high or too low. You have to keep that medium.

It depends on how my football career goes, but when I am finished, I would love to go the NFL and be a kicker. Even if I got to play just one game, it is something I would like to do.

You have to choose whether to take the money or follow your own ambitions, playing in the best league in the world and winning titles.

Some people are motivated by money - I'm not one of them.

I'm in my own fantasy team as well, so there's quite a bit of pressure on it.

Maybe when I was younger, people didn't always believe in me; they didn't think I would make it to where I am now.

If I can be a role model for kids, then that's fantastic. That's what I want to do.

I am quite a calm player. I do have a go at players and refs in the heat of the moment, but I never throw my toys out of the pram.

Harry Kane quotes about football and his playing style

Harry Kane is known the most for his technique, versatility, team play and amazing goal scoring instincts. Kane has been a key member of the England national team and Tottenham in the past 11 years and has shown his strong personality in many key moments of his amazing career. The followings are the

top quotes by Harry Kane

about football and his own playing style.

On football

All goal scorers go on droughts. It is how you cope with that. And it is not just about scoring, it is about what you bring to the team, bringing others into play and getting assists.

Watching all the football over the weekend - and having to wait until Monday night to play - gets you ready, gets you firing.

It is a great boost for confidence in a squad when there is not just one or two players scoring goals, but the whole team is contributing.

The double sessions are tough. The manager wants us to get fit, wants us to work hard. And that's because the Premier League is so tough. We need it. Something we have to do.

When teams are dropping off, it's difficult, especially as a striker. You always have two centre-halves behind you and maybe a sitting midfielder as well. It's a bit more difficult creating chances.

I think to progress in major tournaments and to be at your best, you need a big squad, and you need to rotate it.

It doesn't always click for a new player in a new team: you don't always go in and hit the ground running and score all the time.

Whenever a new manager comes in you want to impress him.

The manager and the fitness staff condition every training session. They plan it out week by week on what players need. If players need a rest, they will do that; if players need to work hard, they will do that as well.

I think sometimes managers like to buy players because they're more experienced from abroad or when they've got players under their nose that will give everything to the club they've been brought up with.

Maybe defenders don't always get the recognition like the other players get.

Teams buy players and change managers if they feel they need change at the club.

In football, you have to grow up quickly, and you're generally more mature than other people your age.

On his Playing style

I've always been working hard on my speed for the last few years. Obviously I'm not slow, but as a striker, the more speed you have, the better you are.

I played in different positions as a kid, and it helped me learn different parts of the game, but I found that I was always scoring goals, and that continued as I got older. I've always enjoyed scoring, and it seemed to come naturally. Fortunately, that has carried on into my professional career.

I'm at my most comfortable out on the pitch when I'm in front of goal with the ball at my feet. It's about being used to certain situations, and with time, you will find, chances don't get snatched at.

It isn't hard to practise finishing. You can do it on your own: just take a couple of touches and shoot at goal. You can do it with whatever equipment you have.

You can run in behind someone - one v. one, you're better - so I'm always trying to work on my speed. That's probably one aspect I've worked on the hardest as a player. I want to always improve on everything in my game, but that's one area I really work on.

I play my best football when I'm calm mentally.

I was a fan myself, and I know what it's like. If someone comes out of the blocks and scores 31 goals in one season, then you think, 'OK, was that a one-off, or will he do it again?'

If I can be a role model, or if I can maybe make another manager play a young player coming through rather than buy a player, that's incredible.

I'm in the team to score goals. I try and score as many as I can in the season to help the team out.

Nine or ten, I like playing both. I like to score goals, and I feel in both positions I can score goals.

There's no point playing up front just because you want to be the one who scores the goals. Make sure you have a knack for it.

I always back myself as a finisher, but I always practise it as well. Every type of finish: left foot, right foot, headers, penalties, free kicks.

Heading is still a vital part of being a striker, and it isn't about being the biggest player. Heading the ball is about timing, so work on that in training.

Sometimes, I put a couple of mannequins on the edge of the box and do these things called bounce balls. You pass against it, and it comes back; you take a couple of touches 'round the mannequins and shoot.

In a game, you never know what chance you're going to get, so I try and cover all bases and make sure I'm ready for that chance when it comes.

Best Harry Kane quotes about his club and international career

We wrap up our article with a look at the

best Harry Kane quotes

about his club career at Tottenham as well as his time with the

England

national team.

On his international career with England

I'm a very patriotic England fan, actually. I always wore my heart on my sleeve.

When you go out in a semifinal you were so close. You always think: if we could have just got over the line we’d have been one game away from winning the World Cup. But overall it was an amazing tournament for us. I don’t think anyone expected us to get that far. We overcame a lot of obstacles – winning the penalty shoot-out, scoring last-minute goals, winning the knockout games. It’s something we can build on with the Euros coming up. (On reaching the 2018 World Cup fourth place)

There's a lot of questions about whether we'd learn from past experiences, from 2018. I said I feel like this squad have. We're in a better place mentally, dealing with those types of games. But it's about performing on the pitch and we definitely showed that. (On reaching the final of Euro 2020)

It’s where we wanted to be. We set out for a vision before the World Cup of what we wanted to achieve, where we wanted to go and take this team, and we’re knocking it off step-by-step. The World Cup was great but we fell short, we had the Nations League, we had a good run there and now we’re in another semi-final.

The boys couldn’t have given more. Obviously penalties are the worst thing in the world when you lose and it wasn’t our night, we’ve had a fantastic tournament, we should be proud, hold our heads up high. It’s going to hurt now, it’s going to hurt for a while. We’re on the right track and we’re building. Hopefully we can progress from this next year. (On losing the final of Euro 2020 on penalties to Italy)

On his life-long affection for Tottenham and his career at the club

Obviously, I am hoping to go on and win many trophies for Spurs and for England. That's always been the aim since I was a kid, dreaming of lifting the trophy one day for them, so that's what I've got to do.

It's the worst feeling in the world - losing, and losing in a final on the big stage is even worse.

I am happy at Tottenham. I go into work every day with a smile on my face, and that is important.

I think I had set-backs, but I still always had that belief that I was going to play for Tottenham Hotspur. Even when I went out on loan to clubs, it was always to come back and be a Spurs player.

I'd love to be captain of

Tottenham

and hopefully England as well.

I want to go and get more goals, create my chances for the team, and do my best for Tottenham Hotspur.

When people think Arsenal had a bad season and we've had a good one, yet they still finish above us, it hurts.

At Norwich, I was injured, and then I went to Leicester, and I found myself on the bench. But I still used that to my advantage as an experience - I had to do that here at Spurs for a while, be on the bench and wait for my chance. It's definitely something that's helped me with my game.

I love this club, and to be wearing number 10 for Tottenham is amazing for me. I could not resist.

As long as there's a vision with the club, and we're not stale, we're going forward as a club.

The more players who come through the academy and make it into the first team, that's what we want. Not just for the club but for the country. If they're young English players coming through, that's fantastic. I'm happy to be part of that.

London derbies are that little bit more special; there's that little bit more feeling.

It was a tough one to take, we did extremely well to reach the Champions League final and, of course, when you get to those big games and you don’t quite perform the way you know you can, that’s always the bit that hurts you the most. It’s now given us the confidence and belief that we can be in the big games, the Champions League finals. (On losing the final of the 2019-20 Champions League to Liverpool)
