Steve Perryman has congratulated Harry Kane for overtaking his long-held record and becoming the player to make the most European appearances in Tottenham’s history.
In his seventeen years at Tottenham, Perryman made 655 appearances for the North London club.
The legendary centre-back, who won two FA Cups, two League Cups and two UEFA Cups during his time at Spurs, made 64 of those appearances in European competitions.
That record has now stood for well over three decades until Kane overtook him when he made his 65th European appearance for Tottenham in their 2-2 draw against Rennes in the Europa Conference League.
Of the 65 appearances that the England captain has made for the Lilywhites in Europe, 24 have come in the Champions League, 39 in Europa League and two in the Conference League this season (Tottenhamhotspur.com).
Kane took to social media to express his delight at breaking the record on Thursday.

Spurs Web Opinion
Hugo Lloris is just two behind Kane with 63 European appearances for Spurs but the Frenchman appears unlikely to overtake the England captain this season, given that Pierluigi Gollini seems set to continue featuring in the Conference League.
