PREMIER - Kane on the arrival of Conte: ''His resume speaks for itself''

Tottenham's selection of Antonio Conte to replace the ousted Nuno Espirito Santo demonstrates "huge desire" from the Premier League club, according to Harry Kane.

The Italian, who was appointed as Spurs manager earlier this week, won his first game in charge on Thursday, defeating Vitesse Arnhem 3-2 in the Europa League.

"I am a player that always believes in myself and always believes in my ability," said Kane. "I am 28 years old, I have still got a lot to learn, a lot to improve on.

"It's not been the start I wanted, the team wanted or the club wanted so we all know that. We all have to take responsibility for it as players.

"It is not something I am worried about, I will keep working and I am really excited about working with this manager.

"It shows great ambition to be honest," said the forward. "His resume speaks for itself. Everyone knows how highly thought of he is and what he has done as a manager in the game.

"You have to respect that. He will work as hard as he can to improve us as players but it is about us as players, taking it in, learning, doing more on the pitch, doing more in training, doing more away from training, whether it is recovery, making sure we give ourselves every opportunity to win.

"We have a manager and a club that believe in us. He definitely brings a lot of passion, a lot of determination, whether that's on the training pitch or in meetings, in the dressing room."
