Silva modelling his game on Kane ahead of Spurs meeting
Posted On May 15, 2021
Wolves starlet Fabio Silva has revealed his admiration for Tottenham striker Harry Kane and his attempts to emulate the goalscorer.
The 18-year-old is aiming to copy Kane’s workrate to try and light up the Premier League.
He’s scored four goals in 29 league appearances since joining for a £35.6million fee in September.

Kane, meanwhile, is rivalling Liverpool’s Mo Salah for the Golden Boot after scoring 21 times in 32 matches.
Speaking ahead of Wolves’ trip to Spurs on Sunday, Silva said: “At the moment the striker I look at most is Harry Kane. When I played at Porto the guy I watched more was (Sergio) Aguero but now at this moment the guy I watch is Kane.
“I feel the same (as him). Sometimes I don’t score but I feel I do things right to help the team.
“Sometimes Kane doesn’t score but I look at the game and he has helped the team. He does things right, defensively, offensively, stretches the defence.
“I look more at Harry Kane, if I don’t score, to help the team although the guy I see who has more similarities with me is (Edinson) Cavani. I love his movement, the way he stretches the defence is the best.
“To help the team without goals I like Kane but in aspects similar to me, movement and stretching the defence, I like Cavani.”
Silva was expected to be eased into the Premier League this campaign, but following the serious injury to Raul Jimenez he’s lead the Wolves line for most of the season.
They sit 12th in the table after 35 games. They could still finish 10th if they pick up three wins and other results go their way.
Silva continued: “You have to focus now on these three games, that’s most important.
“Next season you don’t know if the players will stay, if some will go, so you have to focus now on what you can do in these three games.
“We have the possibility to do good things in these three games. That’s most important.
“Next season we have to wait and see what players we have. Every year you will see Wolves do a good job.
“I know this season we go up and down but it’s normal, you have good and bad moments.
“What’s more important is the spirit of the team, this team has an amazing spirit. You have to focus on this and next season you will see.”
