According to Liam Brady, Arsenal released Harry Kane from their youth setup because he was “a bit chubby” and “not very athletic”.
After being released at the age of eight, Kane admitted to having a “chip on his shoulder” but says the decision was the “best thing that ever happened” and he scored his 101st Premier League goal for Tottenham against their north London rivals at the weekend.
Brady said: “He was a bit chubby, he wasn’t very athletic but we made a mistake. But Tottenham sent him out on loan to lower-division clubs three or four times as well. But through his determination he has carved out an amazing career and he deserves it. He has a character that drives him to improve all the time.
“After (Lionel) Messi, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Robert) Lewandowski there is him. The numbers say it. And he’s only 24 years old.”
This season, Kane was Europe’s top goalscorer last year and has already scored 32 goals.
