Tottenham talisman Harry Kane has targeted lifting a trophy this season in order to improve on last season’s runner-up spot behind defending champions Chelsea, who beat Spurs 2-1 in Tottenham’s first Wembley game of the season.
Since being named manager in 2014, Mauricio Pochettino has guided Tottenham to 5th, 3rd and 2nd placed finishes respectively, consistently improving on previous campaigns.
However, despite progress made in the Premier League, shortcomings at the national stadium in both European and domestic cup competitions have somewhat undermined Tottenham’s recent successes.
Now in Pochettino’s 4th season with the club, two-time golden boot winner Harry Kane believes that the only way to progress even further is to finally win a trophy.
Following Spurs’ 4th successive Wembley defeat to London rivals Chelsea, Kane said of the team’s ambitions:
“Yes, that [win a trophy] is what we have to do.”
“Third, second. The only way we can improve is to win something or win the league.”
“That is our aim. That is always our aim. We have to keep doing what we are doing and hopefully it will happen.”
“It is another year that we have been playing with each other. Another year of getting used to the way that we play with the manager.”
Tottenham’s last silverware came under Juande Ramos in 2008, when Spurs beat Chelsea of all teams in the first final ever contested at the new Wembley stadium.
Since then, Spurs have won just once in 10 competitive outings at the national stadium, having lost all but 2 of the others.
Tottenham return to action at Wembley in next weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures, taking on Burnley who upset the odds at Stamford Bridge on the opening weekend in beating Chelsea 3-2.
Are you confident we can turn it around next weekend? And do you think this team will win any silverware this season?
