Former Arsenal academy explains why London club refuses from Harry Kane

Former Arsenal academy chief Liam Brady says Harry Kane was released from the club’s youth setup because they felt he was too “chubby” to make the grade, Evening Standard reported.

“He was a bit chubby, he wasn’t very athletic but we made a mistake,” Brady told Corriere della Sera. “But Tottenham sent him out on loan to lower-division clubs three or four times as well.

“But through his determination he has carved out an amazing career and he deserves it. He has a character that drives him to improve all the time.

“After Messi, Ronaldo and Lewandowski, there is Harry Kane. The statistics speak for themselves and he’s still only 24.”
