EPL: Harry Kane named player of the Month for the Second time
Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane has been crowned the February edition of the English Player of the Month for the second time this year, while Tony Pulis claimed the managers category of the same award.
The Tottenham striker, who has scored 16 premier league goals this season, one shy of Chelsea\’s Diego Costa and Manchester City\’s Sergio Aguero who have 17 apiece won the January edition of the award.
Only Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo and Robbie Fowler had previously achieved the feat since the prize was first introduced 21 years ago.
Harry began February with a two-goal match-winning performance in the North London derby against Arsenal, before also hitting the target at Liverpool three days later.
He then popped up with a last-gasp equaliser in our 2-2 draw with West Ham United at White Hart Lane on February 22.
\”I\’m very happy,\” said the 21-year-old upon receiving the trophy. \”To win it once a year is great, let alone twice in two months.
“For me, the Arsenal game was the highlight of February. To score twice and to get that late winner was incredible.
“This season has happened so fast but I’ve always believed in myself. I just had to take my chance and thankfully I’ve done that.”
The Barclays Panel – a group of former players, journalists and key football stakeholders – are responsible for choosing the recipient of the award each month.
