Harry Kane has opened up on his connection with Heung-min Son and claims he currently spends more time with his Tottenham teammate than his wife.
The Tottenham duo have continued their solid linkup play this season, which has been extended with the arrival of Dejan Kulusevski.
When Spurs beat Leeds 4-0 earlier in the season, it also saw Kane and the South Korean break the Premier League record for the most combination goals scored.

And the England captain was quizzed on his on-pitch relationship with Son and whether the amount of time spent together has made his wife slightly jealous.
Kane told Canal+: “Maybe! She hasn’t said anything but I’m sure she could be. I probably spend more time with Son than what I do with my wife at the moment, to be honest, but we have a great relationship off the pitch and I think that shows on the pitch as well.”
The all-time top #PL partnership 🤝

“My brain is probably my most important asset of how I play and my intelligence on the pitch.” The England captain explained that he has to see where his teammates are and take a mental picture of that, to then be able to execute his next move/pass.
“We’ve being playing with each now for a long long time, we just understand each others games well.”
“When I drop deep, Sonny knows where to run and hopefully I’m able to put him in.
“We enjoy playing together.”
“Sometimes I wake up and I can’t believe I’m playing with Harry!” Son Heung-Min
The duo moved onto 40 combined goals, four clear of Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba. They also broke the record for the most combined goals in a season during the 2020/21 campaign.
The duo will be hoping their efforts would be enough to secure Spurs a Champions League qualification berth after heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Brighton on Saturday, denying Antonio Conte’s side the opportunity to go six points ahead of their top-four opponents.
However, they still have a chance to qualify for the Champions League. They return to play next week when they travel to in-form Brentford.
