Harry Kane discusses Jamie Vardy rivalry

Published 21 Comments

Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy could well be playing alongside each other for England this summer, so it's about time they cleared the air over those social media posts. 

Prior to Spurs' 4-0 win over Stoke in April, Kane had posted a photo of a pack of lions ready to pounce, insinuating that Tottenham were going to trump Leicester to the title. 

However, on the evening Leicester were confirmed as champions, Vardy hit back with a hilarious tweet depicting Mufasa from the Lion King falling down a cliff.

Kane responds 

That might have prompted fears that there could be a bit of awkwardness between the pair when they linked up in the England camp, but Kane has reassured Three Lions fans that the posts were just "banter". 

As quoted by, the 22-year-old said:

"It was just a bit of banter between fellow professionals – I gave him a bit on Instagram, so if you're happy to dish it out, you've got to take it, haven't you?"

Rivalries aside 

The Spurs striker also admitted he hadn't even bothered winding up Vardy about winning the Golden Boot after pipping him to the prize by one goal because he feared the Leicester striker would have a pretty decent comeback. 

"Winning the golden boot is nice, and it's something I'm very proud of, but he won the Premier League, so there's not a lot I can say!" he added. 

"But it's all about the Three Lions now, we're all concentrating on England.

"Jamie has had a fantastic season and scored a lot of goals, so if the manager puts us together it will be very exciting."
