One of football’s great players Diego Maradona has warned Tottenham striker Harry Kane that goalkeepers are always watching.
The Argentina legend was a guest at Wembley over the weekend as Tottenham thrashed Liverpool 4-1 in the Premier League and was looked after by former Spurs star Ossie Ardiles.
Kane took his total to 17 goals for club and country this season with a brace against Jurgen Klopp’s men but Maradona still had some advice for the 24-year-old.
“Wow, what a goalscorer,” Maradona said, as shown in a video on Spurs’ Twitter page when he was introduced to Kane and captain Hugo Lloris ahead of the match.

“Mauricio has a real backbone in the team. Hugo stops everything at one end and Harry puts everything in at the other.”
And Maradona continued: “Oh, and Harry, don’t always go near post with your shots. Go across goal sometimes.
“You know why? Goalkeeper watch you on TV all the time. So next time… across!”
