Tottenham striker, Harry Kane is optimistic the North London outfit can push for the Premier League title this season after they lost their first Champions League title to Liverpool in Madrid last season.
Spurs finished an impressive season standing fourth on the Premier League after their title challenge petered out, but Kane says last season’s near misses will drive the team on.
“I think it just motivates you to get better. With the Champions League final, you want to play in those games all the time,the England International told Sky Sports News.
“We know it’s going to be tough to get back there this year and it’s down to us to perform.”
The long wait for silverware continues, with our last success having come in February 2008 following the 2-1 win against Chelsea in the League Cup final.
Kane came back into Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven for the European final in Madrid and looked a few yards off the pace as he just recovered from ankle injury.
Kane is fully behind the decisions which his manager Mauricio Pochettino will make in the transfer window with both new arrivals and departures likely to happen.
When asked by Sky Sports if this is the year that Spurs could win the Premier League title: ”Yeah, of course, that’s always the aim. I think we said a lot last year, the manager has full trust in the squad.
”Whoever he gets in or gets rid of then that’s his choice, he is the boss. Whatever happens from now until the end of the window we know we’ve got a strong enough squad to compete.
”The top six now is really tight and tough so we have to put a good run together.”
