Harry Kane Praises Impact of Joe Hart and Gareth Bale in Tottenham Hotspur Dressing Room

Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane has paid credit to summer signings, Gareth Bale and Joe Hart, praising the impact of having trophy winners in the dressing room.

Bale returned to the club after seven years in September, re-joining on a season-long loan from Real Madrid. Former Manchester City goalkeeper Hart arrived as a free agent following the expiration of his Burnley contract at the end of last season.

Captain Kane Praises Impact of Summer Signing’s Bale and Hart

Joe Hart and Gareth Bale “A Big Boost” in the Dressing Room

Speaking to Football London’s Alasdair Gold, Kane said: “The new boys that joined us over the summer have been great; they’ve settled in really quickly. They’ve been playing really well whenever they’ve been on the pitch.

“I think Harty [Joe Hart] has been a big boost to have in the changing room, to have that experience of winning major titles, which is the same as Gareth [Bale] as well.

“Everyone that has come in has been doing really well so we have real competition all over the pitch and that is healthy competition, which hopefully continues.”

Bale and Hart Bring 18 Trophies to the Tottenham Stadium

Joining Tottenham from Southampton in 2007, Bale spent five seasons at White Hart Lane before moving to Real Madrid for around £90 million in 2013.

A controversial figure in the Spanish capital, the Welshman scored 98 goals and provided 60 assists in 238 appearances for Los Blancos. In seven seasons at the Santiago Bernabeu, Bale collected 13 trophies, including two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns.

The 31-year old has featured three times in the league since returning to Tottenham and scored the winner against Brighton & Hove Albion earlier this month.

Hart, meanwhile, was a member of Manchester City’s inaugural Premier League championship side and collected four further trophies before falling out of favour in 2016. The former England number one endured several loan spells before signing for Burnley ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Hart made his debut for Spurs against Shkendija 79 in the Europa League third qualifying round and has gone on to make four appearances in the competition.
