Exclusive: Kane won't celebrate if he scores against Millwall

HARRY Kane has vowed he will not celebrate if he scores against Millwall for Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Good Friday.

Tottenham striker Kane, who bagged seven goals during a loan spell at The Den last season, turned down the opportunity to re-sign for the Lions in February.

The 19-year-old opted to move to the Foxes instead and will play against his former club for the first time when the sides lock horns in front of the television cameras later this week.



Kane told NewsAtDen: "I've thought about it and I don't think I would celebrate. I made a lot friends at Millwall – the players, the manager and the fans – and I still have a lot of respect for all of them.

"If I did score, I doubt you would see a celebration from me."

Kane's decision to join Leicester came as a blow to Millwall boss Kenny Jackett but the England U19 international says he simply wanted a different challenge.



"There was an agreement with Spurs about where I wanted to go," Kane said. "I wanted to take that next step and try to get a team promoted from the Championship.

"That was a decision me and my family made. In football you have to make these decisions. I had a great time at Millwall, I just felt Leicester was the right move at the right time."

Nevertheless, Kane looks back on his time in South London as a crucial learning curve – one that he believes will stand him in good stead for years to come.

"It was a great experience for me – it gave me an opportunity to play a lot of games," he added. "We were in a relegation battle which is a tough experience for anyone, not just a young boy like me.

"It helped me a lot and it's something I will take forward into the rest of my career."

While Kane is looking forward to seeing some familiar faces again on Friday, he insists all sentiment will go out of the window as Leicester attempt to get their promotion push back on track.

"It will be good to seem everyone again," he said. "Playing against them will be a bit strange but that is something every footballer does in their career.

"We've struggled lately with our results – we've been unlucky in a few games and haven't been great in a couple of others. Friday will be a really tough game.

"Leicester is great club and I've enjoyed my time here. There are eight games left in the season and hopefully, if we do well enough, we'll get into the play-offs or even an automatic promotion spot."

    So it was a 'family decision' to go to Leicester! Well, Kane is obviously being advised rather than doing what his heart tells him. Leicester will not go up.....but Millwall will get to the final, and maybe finish the season in style.. Give me, James Henry any day!

    I don't think he needs to worry about any goal celebration - not on Friday anyway.

    I think he made a big mistake nor coming back here. He failed badly at Norwich and is no longer in the starting line-up at Leicester. I think Kenny would have kick-started his career again - and given us better options up front.

    Another twisted and negative article from Aldo. (-:~

    Don't really care what Kane or Wood think about us or their time with us. KJ got the best out of 'em and they went on their merry way. Don't care if Leicester go up or stay down, either way Pearson is getting found out sooner or later. Yet another rank bad manager in an overpaid job.

    Pearson won't last the season. He's toast.
    Kane will end up playing for Tottenham reserves and then ultimately enjoying himself at somewhere like Barnet.
    No sympathy. You had your chance with us son.

    Let's just hope having two strikers that know our bak four inside out doesn't let Leicester run rings around our defence.
    Personally I'd love to see Shittu got right through both of 'em. #thatswhatwedo
