However, the Spurs striker has just received the strangest award he has ever won in his career by the Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, for a rather harmless comment he made recently.
Given the uncertainty surrounding if and when the current Premier League season will resume following the coronavirus shutdown, Kane was asked to comment on the matter in an interview with Jamie Redknapp on Instagram (such as transcribed by the Daily Mail).
While the Spurs striker admitted that he would prefer the season to be over, he insisted that there should be a deadline beyond which the season should be canceled, which he said , should be at the end of June.
Tottenham could be one of the teams to benefit the most if the season is canceled, as it could potentially qualify for the Champions League next season with fourth place in the 2018/19 season.
The Leaders Council has awarded Kane the weekly Hannibal Prize for its “ingenious plan” to secure a place for Spurs in elite European football club competition.
The English captain was praised for the subtle manner in which he expressed his idea of canceling the season if it is not finished by June.
They wrote, “It’s innovative, it’s unorthodox, it’s subtle, it’s bold, it’s genius. Harry Kane, you are a worthy recipient of this week’s Hannibal Prize. “

While the Council of Leaders cannot be blamed for its lack of a sense of humor, it is clear that it reads much more in the comments of the Spurs strikers than it intended. However, there is no doubt that Jose Mourinho and the Tottenham team would prefer to see the season canceled and start the next campaign again.
