According to ESPN Harry Kane has said finishing in the top four this season is the club’s biggest achievement under manager Mauricio Pochettino.
Harry’s winner against Newcastle on Wednesday, his 28th league goal of the season, ensured we will play Champions League football for the third season running and that we finish as the top club in London for the first time in 23 years.
We have have challenged for the league title in the previous two campaigns but we are currently 23 points shy of champions Manchester City with one game to play.However Kane believes this season’s top-four finish has been a bigger achievement than in previous seasons because We have spent the year at temporary home Wembley Stadium, while our new 61,500-capacity home is being built.
“I think so, I think it is,”:said Kane, when asked if this was the current team’s greatest feat.I think some people underestimate how tough it has been at times — 38 games away from home in the Premier League, really, and in a competitive league. That’s tough.
He added: “It’s not easy when teams come here. It’s a big game for them, big stadium for them. We’ve had to deal with that, deal with the pressure of that. We’re delighted to finish it off and take the pressure off for the weekend.
“Especially with the top six, everyone is fighting for a Champions League spot. I’m very proud of the team, we’ve worked hard to do it. It feels really good.
He went on to say: “We progressed well from the first season, it gave us a lot of confidence this year the way we topped the group with the teams we played. Even the Juventus game [in the Champions League round of 16] we didn’t go through but we felt like we could have done on another day.It’s massive, we want to be playing Champions League football every year, especially for us for Spurs it is important we do that.”
