Antonio Conte has claimed that Harry Kane is determined to ‘do something special’ and help Tottenham to win major honours.

Kane will undoubtedly go down as one of the best strikers in Premier League history, with the Tottenham man breaking one record after another.

The 28-year-old has scored five goals in six Premier League games so far this season, which has taken his goal tally in the competition to 188 – the third highest in history.

Kane is now 72 goals behind Alan Shearer’s all-time record while he just needs 14 goals to overtake Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham’s highest-ever scorer.

It is also only a matter of time before the England captain overtakes Wayne Rooney to become the highest goal scorer for the Three Lions.

Conte insisted that Kane deserves to win trophies given the numbers he has produced on a consistent basis and the Italian admitted he is keen to ensure that the striker secures his legacy by winning silverware at Spurs.

When asked about the striker’s brilliant record, the 53-year-old told Football.London: “The records underline that you are doing something special, and I think Harry in his career is doing something special in personal achievement because it’s really a pity with so many personal big achievements and you don’t win (trophies).”

“Until now he hasn’t won and usually when you score a lot of goals for your national team and club you deserve to have a good win on your back, but we are trying to work and help him to find and get this target.

“You know very well for us that Harry is important and we are talking about a world-class striker but I see the desire in him, the desire to do something special.

“When you win it means you lift trophies, Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup and with the national team the Euros, World Cup and these are trophies you have to lift and you are talking about a top player and I think he deserves this.”

Spurs Web Opinion

There is no doubt that Kane will want to win silverware to add to his legacy but he will still be remembered as one of the best ever players to grace the Premier League even if he does not win titles.

The opposition fans who slander him for his lack of silverware, cannot stand him anyway and are not arguing in good faith. In fact, I am sure if Kane wins a trophy, they will criticise him for having won just one.
