Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes that new manager Jose Mourinho can end the club’s 11-year wait for a trophy.
Mourinho has 20 major trophies to his name, but in comparison, Tottenham have not tasted success since winning the League Cup in 2008 following an extra time win against Chelsea.
Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked on Tuesday night helped to take the club to the next level by making the North Londoners Champions League regulars, but failed to add to the trophy cabinet.
Mourinho began life as Spurs manager by leading the club to a 3-2 win against West Ham United on Saturday.
The Portuguese has won as many points in his first game as Mauricio Pochettino mustered in his final 12 away Premier League games with Tottenham (W0 D3 L9).
Kane has admitted that he has made it clear to that at the age of 26 he wants to win trophies with the club.
He told Sky Sports: “The gaffer’s won at every club he’s gone to – there’s no hiding away from that,”
“I’ve made it clear I want to win them here and it’s a big year for us.
“Realistically we look at the Champions League and the FA Cup this season to try and do that, so we’ll see how that goes and then from my point of view I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, keep fighting for this club on the pitch.
“You could say that (Mourinho could make the difference) because of his reputation.
“It’s been three days so, until we build that relationship and see how things get on over the next two or three months, we won’t really know.
“But we all want to win. We wanted to win when Mauricio was here, we want to win the same now the gaffer’s here.
“But of course when someone’s got a reputation like he has, it gives you confidence, it gives you that belief in the team.
“He wants to win. He’s a proven winner. I’ve made it clear that I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win trophies.
“It’s almost a fresh slate for everyone now to show the manager what they can do and hopefully the players can thrive on that.”
