Harry Kane during the London Awards has reflected on Tottenham’s latest trophy defeat amid talk of summer exit, and admitting that he also would like to win trophies.
It turned 13 years without a trophy after Spurs lost to Manchester City last Sunday courtesy of Laporte’s 82nd minute header in the Carabao Cup final.
A lot of rumours have surfaced with Harry Kane in recent times and reports suggest that he will leave Spurs this summer to get his first major silverware.
On individual awards:
“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements. When I look back at the end of my career, I will go over it and take in a little bit more.”
“The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. As much as this [award] is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team and we are not quite doing that.”
“It is one of those [situations], it is bittersweet. I would rather be winning team trophies and this award. It is what it is.”
On Tottenham’s Drought:
“We still have a way to go before we can reach that level of City and those teams at the top of the league. We’ve got to keep working hard, learn from it and try and finish the season strongly.”
“He’s a fantastic manager, he’s managed the biggest players at the biggest clubs in the world,” said Kane. “He came in with a real understanding of what he wanted and we had good conversations early on that continued all the way through.
“In terms of style of play, I’ve always liked to drop deep and be involved, but the biggest change was making sure people were running in behind and using all the tools to try and exploit opposition weaknesses.
“We had a good relationship, I feel like my games been evolving over the last three or four years anyway and it was just a good matchup. It was a shame we couldn’t go onto better things or win any trophies, but I’ll take the experience I had with him forward for the rest of my career.”
Tottenham Hotspur still have to fight for a place in Europe next season and will need to put to an end a bad run of form.
