Harry Kane wears full NFL gear including helmet and pads but fans make cheeky jibe about Tottenham star switching sports
FANS could not resist making a cheeky jibe as Harry Kane went NFL crazy in a new Instagram post.
Kane is a huge fan of American Football and even has his own limited edition NFL jersey – and previously revealed he would love to try himself as an NFL kicker after retiring from football.NFL nut Harry Kane has gone all-out as he posed in full American Football attire[/caption] Fans could not resist a cheeky jibe in the photo comments of the Spurs and England ace[/caption]
The star is an ardent New England Patriots supporter and in 2019 went to the Super Bowl in Atlanta to cheer on his team as they battled it out with the LA Rams.
In his latest show of love for the sport, the NFL UK’s Instagram channel shared a number of snaps of the star kitted out in full NFL gear.
But football fans couldn’t resist taking the chance to have a cheeky dig – suggesting he should make the switch to the NFL in order to finally win some silverware.
One wrote: “Time to try for a trophy… in the NFL”.
Another said: “Might win a trophy with this new career venture @harrykane.”
While another commented: “He should get a switch, might win a cup at NFL.”
The Spurs ace, who has never won a trophy, previously revealed how he could see himself making his NFL debut one day as a kicker.
He said: “That’s real. Something that in ten or 12 years I definitely want to try.

“It goes back to that drive to be the best. Even if I download a game on my phone, can I be the best in the world?
“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?”
And he added that NFL legend Tom Brady inspired him to become the football superstar he is today.
Kane added: “I started watching him on YouTube, we’ve had a similar path being doubted when we were younger. Maybe not being the best athletes as kids.
“It was quite a big inspiration. Not many people thought he’d become that good, or even play in the NFL, and he went on to become the best ever.
“At the time, it gave me a real boost to say, look, anything is possible. If you have that self-belief and that drive and that hunger, you can do it.”
The striker overtook Wayne Rooney to become the second-highest Premier League goalscorer on Saturday.
Tottenham’s all-time top scorer, 29, headed in to earn a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
That was his 209th strike in the Premier League, moving him one clear of Rooney on 208 and the current Three Lions captain, who is also our country’s all-time top scorer, is now just 51 goals behind Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260 goals.
Manchester United have made the star one of their top summer transfer targets as Kane’s future remains in the spotlight with just over a year left on his contract.
It has been another year of disappointment for him at club level and he will end this season without landing that first trophy.Harry Kane has admitted he would like to make the switch to NFL after retirement[/caption] The England captain previously revealed how he was inspired by NFL legend Tom Brady[/caption]
