January 24, (THEWILL) – Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, has made it clear that he wants to help striker Harry Kane win a trophy with the club, as he believes it would give Kane’s records more validity.
As THEWILL reported, Kane scored the winning goal in Monday’s 1-0 victory at Fulham, which saw him equal Jimmy Greaves’ goals record for the club. Kane now has 266 goals for Spurs, with just one more needed to write his name in the club’s history books.
However, Kane is yet to win a trophy with Spurs, who last enjoyed success in the EFL Cup 15 years ago. The atmosphere around the club has been poor lately following defeats to Manchester City and rivals Arsenal, but Conte is trying to focus on the positives.
He said, “For sure, I would like to help him and me, also his teammates, to try to do something important, to win something with Tottenham because he loves Tottenham. Tottenham is in his heart and it would be good if together we were able to win something because then it is important to have this record, but I think it could be more important if you win a trophy.”
Conte also revealed that Kane’s match-winning display came despite him not being 100% fit: “Today he was amazing. I think he scored a fantastic goal, the execution to control the ball, then to kick it in that way, only a world-class striker can score this goal. About the spirit that I spoke before, I want to underline Harry played with a fever and he was not so good [in terms of condition], but he wanted to play because he understood the moment.”
