Harry Kane has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur will do everything in their power to try and win the Premier League as a tribute to Ego Ehiogu.
The Tottenham Under-23 coach sadly passed away on Friday after suffering a cardiac arrest on Thursday at the training ground.
After the frustrating 4-2 defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi final, attentions for Tottenham turn to trying to seek revenge by closing the four point gap on the Premier League leaders.
“Of course the last couple of days have been tough,” Kane said after the Wembley defeat.
“Ugo was a great character around the training ground, it was just shocking news to be honest.
“Of course we’ll do everything we can to win the league for him – we wanted to win today for him and for ourselves as well.
“There are still six tough games left in the Premier League. We can’t control what Chelsea do now.
“We just have to win as many as we can and it starts Wednesday with a tough game away at Crystal Palace.”
Tottenham next travel to Crystal Palace on Wednesday, a day after Chelsea host Southampton. Palace will be no pushover after being Liverpool 2-1 at Anfield this afternoon.
“It’s hard to say what effect it will have – of course we wanted to win and keep our momentum going but it didn’t happen,” Kane said.
“There’s nothing we can do now. We can’t control what Chelsea do, if it gives them more momentum, it gives them more momentum. We’ve just got to concentrate on our game.
“We’ve got six very difficult games home and away so we’ll do everything we can to get as high up the league as we can.”
