MUTV Interviews: Kane Exclusive
MUTV caught up with United's newest striker to discuss his big summer move, his sudden rise to the top, favourite moment from last season & more.
It's been a crazy twelve months for me, to be sat here infront of you wearing a Manchester United shirt is stuff of dreams, it's the biggest club in the world and has some of the most passionate fans around. I remember being sat infront of my nana's television in 1999 watching the Champion's league final between United and Bayern, it was the most incredible game i had ever watched even to this day. I think i was only 6 or 7 years old at the time but i knew then i wanted to do what they do.
The Europa league last season was a big point in the season i had, the play-off's and group stage were very good for me, i was scoring goals and with that my confidence grew..i started to think to myself "i can make a difference" there's nothing more morale boosting than knowing you are making a difference. I scored my first league goal and from then on it became more frequent as the season wore on, i would say my favourite moment from last season was my performance against Chelsea at White Hart Lane, to see the 5-3 scoreline at the end of the match was unbelievable.
Receiving the call from Roy Hodgson was a blur, only because i cuden't quite believe what i was hearing. A year before i was struggling to get first team football and then there i was coming on as a sub for my first cap to play alongside the likes of Wayne Rooney, Joe Hart and James Milner at Wembley infront of 90,000 fans, i cuden't describe the feeling to you it was unreal. Then to grab my first goal for my country..wow incredible. To score 80 seconds after coming on as a substitute, i don't think Alan Shearer or Gary Lineker can boast that can they? Guess i can hold that over them *sniggers to himself*.
I'm a young Englishman with a passion to play the best sport in the world, i want to win all the trophies possible and with Manchester United i believe i can. There are many great players at this football club and together i believe we can go on and be successful together. Wayne Rooney has five winners medals and he still has the hunger of a 19 year old Rooney, it's inspiring.
