Kane has scored just once in 12 games Premier League game, look at the ball of the player who won the Golden Shoe award and the best player of the season last season.
He struggled after an emotional summer like England was beaten on penalties in the Euro 2020 final before he was involved in a transfer saga amid his desire to join Manchester City.
Conte’s arrival at Spurs revived his performance, but was still missing goals as he squandered a golden opportunity in a 2-0 win over Brentford.
And, with Spurs set to go through 10 games in 30 days, Conte says Kane will start all of them until they can figure out how to cope.
“If I answer honestly, to start a game without Harry It’s a bit difficult for me now,” he said.
“It was a bit difficult for me. Honestly, we are talking about a player that is important to us, a player that is important to all.
“Yes, in this moment, I am answering this way. I hope to improve the situation, improve the confidence of all the players and see that perhaps without Harry we could have covered the situation. “Not in the same way, but in a way that might be good to get three points.
“Now, to be honest, I don’t see this team starting without Harry.”
Despite Kane’s dryness in the league, he has scored comfortably in Europe and for England and Conte is happy with his performance.
“I’ve always been honest with my players and if I’m not happy with Harry’s performance, I’ll definitely tell him,” the Italian added.
“But I repeat: I am very pleased with his performance – he is playing well and working great for the team.
“I know that, for strikers, it is important to score goals, but at the same time we have to think about Tottenham, what is best for Tottenham, and it is important for us if Harry scores to be the best. win three points.
“A player like Harry can always tackle the game because he has great quality, he is a complete player, a real top player, and I really don’t worry about him. .
“Sometimes a striker doesn’t score, and that’s life, but his contribution to the team is still very important.”
Spurs are a long way from the top four even without Kane’s goal ahead of this weekend’s clash with Norwich.
Winning the Champions League would be a good achievement, but Conte says no goals were given to him prior to joining and he made no “stupid promises” to chairman Daniel Levy.
“When I went and spoke to the club, they didn’t ask me for anything,” he added.
“Daniel Levy wants me to be strong, not because I will carry stupid promises.
“Daniel Levy wanted me to come here because of my reputation, my work, my ideas, my methods, my ability to build something important, especially because they didn’t have a solid foundation in the first place.
“I think he wanted me for this reason and I accepted for this reason.
“Honestly, if he asked me something different, I would probably say, ‘Thanks a lot but it’s just not the right time’.”
Conte has insisted that his primary focus is on improving the quality of the current squad, but he hinted for the first time that there could be more work to be done in the transfer window.
“The most important thing for us is to try to improve how the situation is going. For now the only way is in our hands,” he said.
“Then if there is a possibility to improve the quality then we will try to do that. Now my first thought is to work to get the most out of the players I have.
“I have a good group of players and I would love to work with this group of players. Now we have to focus on this and then have time to make the right assessment with the club. ”
