Tottenham Hotspur captain Harry Kane has admitted about his frustrations on not winning a trophy yet with the North London club. Spurs missed out yet again on Sunday after being defeated by Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley.
Having been unceremoniously knocked out of the Europa League, Spurs’ chances to qualify for next year’s Champions League look bleak. The North London club are five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, with just five games remaining in the season.
Kane has quashed the rumours suggesting he could leave Spurs at the end of the season if they fail to qualify for next year’s Champions League, and insisted he would decide about his future only after the European Championship.
The England international was named as the Premier League player of the year – 2021 after scoring 21 goals, and making 13 assists. However, Kane admitted he would be more happier to win trophies with his team. Speaking to Sky Sports, the Spurs captain said “Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements.”
“When I look back at the end of my career, these are the things I will go over and take in more but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that.“
“It is bittersweet, I would rather be winning team trophies and this one but it is what it is. I am proud to win it, it means it’s been a good season on the pitch. So I have got to try and continue what I am doing.”
Kane reiterated his disappointment on Spurs’s performances this season in the league, where they have dropped more points from a winning position. The England international added “It has been a disappointing season, if I am totally honest.”
“We have had so many opportunities and been in so many games where we have been ahead or been in a good position going into the last 15 minutes and we haven’t quite got over the line for one reason or another.”
“When we look back, we were in a great position come November and that [bad] spell over December and January really put a halt to what we were trying to achieve. We have got loads to improve on. The thing now is to try and finish strong, try and win the last five games, hopefully try and make the Champions League spot.”
“It has been disappointing and as players we have to take responsibility and when we go away in the summer really focus on what we can improve on.”
