Frank Worrall is one of soccer’s great biographers, having written incredible books about Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, Jamie Vardy, Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Mario Balotelli, and Wayne Rooney to name just a few. He’s prolific as a writer, but each text is world-class as is the case with his latest book, Harry Kane: The Biography.
Kane is very deserving of a quality biography, thanks to his goalscoring prowess at Tottenham and the fact that he literally rose through the ranks there. “A local boy done good” theme works well in the story: the fact that he was born five miles from White Hart Lane and paid his dues in several loans throughout England seals the deal.
The text takes us to Kane’s humble beginnings, drawing some comparisons to the legendary David Beckham along the way. We follow him through the international game, loan deals, and eventually stardom with Spurs.
Kane’s “never give up” attitude shines through the text as he endured trials and tribulations on his path to becoming a staple for both club and country. He endured multiple loans from different head managers and often found himself on the bench, instead of the pitch. He never faltered and used the experiences to make himself better.
Today he is a player with tremendous international experience, playing for his country at the very highest levels. At the club level, he has played (and scored) in the most prestigious events and even has a Premier League Golden Boot under his belt from the 2015/16 season.
Harry Kane: The Biography is yet another gem from Worrall, which should come as no surprise.
Kudos to John Blake Publishing for continuing to showcase Worrall’s as part of their impressive portfolio of literature. No wonder they are one of the biggest names in the world of sports publishing.
