Harry Kane claims he’s among best strikers in the world
Kane echoes Mauricio Pochettino’s view that the striker is establishing himself as a top class forward
March 1st, 2017
Harry Kane scored a first-half hat-trick against Stoke on Sunday, with the England striker having once again surpassed the 20-goal mark for the third successive season.
Kane has all the attributes required to be a fantastic striker in the Premier League. He scores goals from range, snaps up bits and pieces in the penalty area and is also a mean operator in the air.
Mauricio Pochettino has spoken of how the forward has become one of the world’s best strikers and Kane has echoed his view.
“I feel that, if you look at my stats, my goals, then I’m up there,” said Kane. “Look, I just try to do my best. I like to score goals, obviously I will try and score as many as I can from now until the end of the season. I feel in good form.
“I think I am in the best form of my career,” he said. “I feel fresh, I feel sharp, I feel in good shape. Of course, that injury I had earlier in the season might have done me a bit of good, getting a bit more rest. I’ve had a good couple of months so it’s important I continue that until the end of the season.
“As a striker you always want to win the golden boot. There’s a lot of top strikers up there at the minute – I think I might be joint top now – and there are still a lot of games to play. But, of course, it would be brilliant to retain that golden boot. That trophy is up there in my house, and I would like another one. When people have said I’m a one-season wonder, that’s motivated me. I want to prove them wrong and I know, in myself, that I will always score.
“It’s nice to break that 20-goal mark again. Hopefully I can push on to 25, to 30; that’s always the aim. I’ve just got to keep doing what I’m doing, the team has to keep doing what we’re doing, keep winning games, and that’s the most important thing.”
