Harry Kane’s Comments Highlight Tottenham’s Need for Trophies
Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane recently expressed his opinion that the club should be fighting for trophies rather than a top four finish in the Premier League. This sentiment has highlighted the need for the club to make a push for silverware.
Kane’s comments came after Tottenham were knocked out of the Champions League by AC Milan on Wednesday. Spurs managed only a 0-0 draw at home in the second leg, after having lost the first leg at the San Siro 1-0. When asked if top four was a success post-game, Kane told reporters: “No, I don’t think so. Where we’re at as a club, we should be winning trophies. That’s always the aim.”
The England captain’s words have shone a light on the need for Tottenham to make a push for trophies in the near future. The club has not won a major trophy since the League Cup in 2008 and Kane’s comments suggest that he is keen to help the club break this drought.
Kane is not alone in wanting the club to achieve more success. Tottenham’s manager, Jose Mourinho, has also been vocal about the need for the club to target trophies. Mourinho has won major trophies in his career, including the Champions League with Porto in 2004 and the Premier League title with Chelsea in 2015.
The club’s supporters are also keen for the team to be challenging for trophies. Spurs have been in the hunt for silverware in recent seasons, but have ultimately failed to come away with any.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham can make a push for trophies in the near future, but Harry Kane’s comments have certainly highlighted the need for them to do so. With both Kane and Mourinho keen for the club to be more successful, Spurs have the potential to become a major force in English football.
