According to Sky Sports Harry Kane has challenged Liverpool’s Mo Salah to repeat his record-breaking goal tally to be recognised as a “great”.
The Egyptian scored his 32nd Premier League goal of the season in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Brighton on Sunday to finish two ahead of Harry and set the record for the most goals scored in a 38-game campaign.
Kane’s 30 league goals was still the best return of his career, after tallies of 25 and 29 in the previous two years, but not enough to claim a third-successive Golden Boot.
“It’s good to have competition, it’s great for the Premier League to have two players at the 30-goal mark,”:he said.
“Personally for me, it was a target to improve on last year, obviously 29, and it was nice to get to that 30-goal mark.
He added: “Mo has done great this year, he deserves it, he deserves the Golden Boot, I am looking forward to the competition again next year.For me, it is about doing it year after year. This is my fourth year now and the first time I have got to 30 goals in the Prem, now it’s about getting to 30 goals for the next two or three years, that’s the aim.
Kane added: “Any player wants to do it on a consistent basis and that’s what defines a good player from a great player. He has done amazing this year and he looks like a great player and we’ll see if we can both continue it next season.”
On the season as a whole Kane said: “It has been a good year,” he said. “As a team to get in the Champions League was very important in the new stadium.
He added: “It’s not been easy, especially playing here (Wembley) as well.The top six now is so strong, everyone’s really competitive, so for us to finish in the top three for the third year in a row is brilliant.”
