The EFL Awards were held on Sunday and among those to be recognised was Doncaster midfielder Herbie Kane.
The youngster has had an excellent season on loan at the Keepmoat from Premier League side Liverpool as Donny chase a play-off place come the end of the campaign.
Speaking to us exclusively on Sunday night, he revealed just how much he has loved his time at the Yorkshire outfit:
“I’ve really enjoyed it.
“We’re doing well as a team at the moment. At first I didn’t really know what to expect but I’ve just adapted to everything and I feel as though I’ve taken everything in my stride really and I’m happy at Doncaster and I’m doing well.
“Hopefully I can crack on next season as well and get to the play-offs and win them this year with the club.”
Certainly, Rovers seem a buoyant side at the moment with stars like John Marquis and Mallik Wilks also doing the business.
Kane revealed that there’s a confidence around the squad, too, thanks to the players they’ve got on show:
“I think in football you have to be confident and we’ve got plenty of players that can win us games so I think personally we can do it.
“We’ve got the players and the gaffer and staff to do it as well so hopefully we’ll be able to get over the line.”
The gaffer is Grant McCann – a manager whose stock is continuing to rise – and Kane discussed his current boss’ strengths as we head into the final games:
“Work ethic is one of the things he focuses on.
“I’m grateful that he’s put trust in me. I think being a young manager and giving young players minutes is a risk but luckily he has trust in me and I have to thank him for that.”
Kane, of course, is on loan from Liverpool and the Reds will surely be watching with a keen interest as he continues to excel.
He’ll have a tough job of getting into Jurgen Klopp’s side, but he does have plenty of ability and, clearly, potential.
Right now, though, Kane tells us he is fully focused on his current club:
“I’m focused on Doncaster at the moment and putting everything into them and when I go back to Liverpool I’ll be focusing on that.”
