Harry Kane has insisted that his ambition to lift silverware is what drives him on and is adamant that he has enough time to achieve what he wants to in the game.
Calls for Kane to leave Tottenham have intensified over the last few months, with plenty of pundits urging the striker to quit the club this summer in order to give himself a chance of winning the biggest trophies.
The growing chorus over Kane’s potential exit is certainly understandable considering that the 27-year-old is now widely accepted to be one of the best strikers in the world while Spurs look a long way from challenging the best sides in England and across Europe.
The England captain has done little to silence the rumours about his future, not shying away from admitting that he craves winning trophies.
Kane has now reiterated his trophy desire but refuted the suggestion that he is running out of time to achieve what he wants to.
The Tottenham star told BBC Sport: “I’ve done so many things in the game but there are still so many things in my head that I want to achieve.
“I spoke openly about (winning silverware). That’s the reason why I play the game, that’s why I became a footballer – to win and have those experiences with my teammates, lifting trophies and winning the biggest games.
“It hasn’t happened so far but I feel I’ve got plenty of time in my locker. I’m just looking forward and I’m sure they will come.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I have never understood why some pundits seem to think it is ‘now or never’ for Kane if he wants to make a big move. I believe that he could be a world-class performer until he is 34 or 35 as he does not rely on his pace or athleticism and takes good care of his body.
So, theoretically, he can leave Spurs a couple of years down the line and still walk into most teams in world football. So, I am not surprised that he appears to be quite calm regarding his trophy ambitions.
