Tottenham have come a long way as a club in the last five years under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino.
They now regularly compete in the Champions League and at the top of the Premier League table and boast of facilities that are unrivaled in the Premier League.
However, despite making all that progress, the team is still yet to win any silverware in recent years – a point that critics regularly remind everyone of.
Pochettino admitted that winning some silverware is the club’s main objective this season (Evening Standard) and star striker Harry Kane has now mirrored his manager’s assessment.
The England captian said that although Spurs have won the respect of fans and teams across Europe, they now need to win a trophy in order to have something to show for their improvements.
“But I think we’ve proved in the last five years that we have a good enough squad. We just need to get the job done out on the pitch.
“We’ll do everything we can to win something and I think it would give everyone at the club a big boost. Year-by-year we have progressed, but we still haven’t really got anything to show for it.
“I think we’ve earned the respect of teams and fans around Europe, but we haven’t had that success of winning a trophy.
“The players and the manager want to do that. We’ve been a success as how we’ve progressed as a club but we’re at the stage now where trophies and titles are the most important thing.”
The 26-year-old is quite confident that Spurs can pull off the feat this year.
He added, “It’s only us players on the pitch who can perform and make that happen.
“Tottenham and myself have come a long way in the last five years or so. We’re winners, I’m a winner, and I want to win in those big moments. Thinking about how we can improve and do that.”

While Pochettino was right when he said last season that qualifying for the Champions League was more important for the club’s long term future than winning a domestic cup competition, it really is time that Spurs took the FA Cup and League Cup seriously this year. Winning a domestic trophy could give the side the belief to go for bigger prizes in the future.
