American Dream: Kane sets sights on National Football League kicking role

"I'm really honoured and really happy to be here and it is such a special day to get this new stadium going", he said.

Admitting the two-week global break had come at an inopportune time as his side were left stewing over the 2-1 defeat by Southampton on March 9, the Argentinian said: "It's a bad thing because the last feeling is not good".

This was a chance for more supporters to get a look at their new home following the first test event last week - an Under-18s clash with Southampton which was on a much smaller scale.

Spurs now sit third in the Premier League and return to league action on Sunday when they visit leaders Liverpool at Anfield.

"And if you're Harry Kane and you think to yourself "well I would have loved to have been part of Tottenham for the rest of my career, but Real Madrid is an entirely different level".

Kane, the top scorer at last year's FIFA World Cup, has always been an admirer of American football and believes successfully switching sports late in his career will help him go down in history as one of the greatest sportsmen of all time.

Mauricio Pochettino has hailed Tottenham's new stadium as "the best in the world". "Even if I download a game on my phone, can I be the best in the world?"

Kane is a huge National Football League fan and has forged a friendship with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady via social media in recent years, stating that he has drawn inspiration from the six-time Super Bowl winner's career.

And having met Patriots' legendary quarterback Tom Brady, Kane says he is inspired to follow his dream and pursue a future career in the NFL. We've got some great young players and an incredible manager.

He said: "I am just proud of how the boys have handled it".

"We both want the same things", said Kane. "Of course, we all know what happened when I last played football but thankfully everything has been fine since then and I can't wait to put my boots on again and play some minutes in this wonderful new venue".

"You never want to go into a new stadium without getting a result".
