Harry Kane central to Tottenham's future, says Antonio Conte

Harry Kane is central to the club's future and Antonio Conte understands his frustration.

Kane indicated his desire to leave Spurs for Manchester City in the summer before he decided to stay, but he has been fully committed to the team, according to the coach.

Daniel Levy made a great choice to keep Kane at the club, as they haven't won a trophy in years.

Spurs head coach Antonio Conte is returning to his former club, where he won the title.

When Harry decided to stay at Spurs, I found a player completely involved in the project, which is what I want to build something to win.

I am sympathetic to Harry's situation. It's right to see what you've won even if you can't see your appearances for the teams you made them for. This is important for the top players.

I think that when we were brought here, they wanted to send a signal to our players. We have to try to create a situation where we can be competitive in order to win.

Kane has scored three goals in Spurs' last four games after a slow start to the season.

Sky Sports Football will show the game between Chelsea and Spurs at 7.45pm.
