HARRY KANE WANTS TEAM TROPHIES
Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has disclosed that winning team trophies is better than individual accolades for him at the moment after he won an award at the London Football Awards on Tuesday.
Kane spoke with the media practitioners after being named the player of the year at the awards. At the same award ceremony, Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka was named as the young player of the year.
Tottenham Hotspur have not won any major title in each of the last 13 years. Their last trophy was the 2008 League Cup. Kane and Spurs missed out on the chance to end the trophy drought in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
At the Wembley Stadium, Frenchman AymericLaporte scored in the final minutes of the game off a Kevin De Bruyne corner kick to hand Manchester City a 1-0 win over the North London team. The Citizens won the Carabao Cup title with the goal from ex-Bilbao centre back.
Manchester City have now won four straight Carabao Cup titles. They have also won five of the last six editions and six of the last eight editions.
England national team skipper Kane saw national team colleague Kyle Walker leave the club for Manchester City three years ago and he has won seven trophies at the Etihad Stadium in comparison to the none for Spurs and their talisman Kane.
According to the publication, Kane is expected to tell Spurs that he wants to leave the club in the summer if the North London giants don't qualify for Champions League football in the new season. The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to other Premier League teams like Manchester City and Manchester United.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy always drive a hard bargain and it remains to be seen if he would sanction a move for the player. Kane is likely to command a transfer fee of over £100m if he were to leave North London.
