Harry Kane has suggested the Champions League is “not so scary” after Tottenham finished top of a group containing Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
The Spurs striker was keen to emphasise the club’s progression since last season, when they were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stages.
“When you beat Borussia Dortmund at home and then draw at Real Madrid and beat them at home, you come away thinking this Champions League is not so scary,” said Kane. (Quotes via Sky Sports.)
“We went to Dortmund two years ago and got battered. It wasn’t a game we looked forward to then.
“But now, when you are competing with and beating these big clubs in Europe, you tend to look forward more to playing them.
“You want to play in big stadiums against big clubs when you know you can do well.”
Kane added: “Everybody connected with the club should enjoy this moment.
“To think how far we have come from last year in the Champions League to now, when we’ve finished top with one game to go, is something very special.”
