Harry Kane admits Tottenham’s season will only be a success if there is silverware at the end of it.

The striker returned from an ankle injury in Sunday’s 3-1 victory over Chelsea – Spurs’ first league win at Stamford Bridge for 28 years.

Tottenham scored 10 goals in the three games Kane missed, progressing to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and moving eight points ahead of Chelsea in the battle for Champions League qualification.

And while Kane believes finishing in the top four will be an achievement, the 24-year-old thinks winning the FA Cup is even more important.

“Champions League football is a must and we’re in a great position,” Kane said (via Sky Sports).

“I think we’ve got to try and win the FA Cup. If we do that, we can say it’s been a very good season.

“Obviously City have run away with the league this year, and fair play to them.

“But for us, it’s about maintaining the Champions League every year and hopefully we can do that. We’re in a comfortable position, we’ve got to go on and finish well.”

Spurs will play against Manchester United in the semi-finals of the FA Cup later this month.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side obviously have the advantage of playing at Wembley, where they have lost just once in the Premier League this season.

Tottenham haven’t won a trophy since the League Cup success of 2008.

Lifting the FA Cup this term would be a huge monkey off the club’s back ahead of moving to the new stadium later this year.



  1. It’s just great that at last Spurs mean something after so very long being a joke. For many years now to be a Spurs supporter has such a struggle. At the begining of every season we dreamed for so much, but Arsenal and Chelski got the glory. Spurs fans took a mailing at times. But on Sunday we smashed a 28 year voodoo, now we want to smash another one by winning silverware after 10 long years of having a hard trophy cabinet.
    At last the Spurs heads have learned the lesson to stick with their manager. At last Levi and Lewis have learned that success takes patience and time. Our greatest general, Bill Nicholson won many wars. Now at last we have a new general, Mauricio Pottechino.
    Alex Ferguson did nothing for a few seasons but Manchester United stuck with him, Daniel Levi do the same with our Mauricio and he will bring success. Although I have to say it Arsenal did it with Chapman and then Venger. Ok in 4 or so years we have won nothing but given time we have improved every season. Toby Alderweiweld is a tremendous player but if he is bigger than our team let him go. I feel that he will regret it very soon. Spurs players Must hang in there the Glory days of the 60’s Are coming soon. My motto for us is,’Pacience and Time.’
    I have followed my Spurs for 67 years now and as far as they are concerned I will never quit them. So C.O.Y.S. let’s do this Together.

  2. I agree with you Roy. Tottenham have to stick with poch, keep their core squad. Toby can be replaced with a younger just as talented player. We have to win the FA Cup this year. There are no excuses as we have ” home” advantage for semi and the final. I have seen some wonderful days during my 56 years as a Tottenham fan. I hope for many more in the coming years.

  3. Finishing top 4 means a very successful season.
    People seem to forget Spurs were tipped to drop out of the top 4 (Mark Lawrenson, Trevor Sinclair, Jermaine Jenas, Ben Pearce, Ismael Dawood, Glenn Hoddle, Harry Redknapp…. there’s a very long list of doomsayers) because it was going to be too difficult to play at Wembley and keep their home record intact – apparently Wembley doesn’t suit Spurs’ style of play.

    Winning the FA cup would be the icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned.

  4. We have learned to walk we are running improving every season been spurs fan for over sixty years chavs Man Utd Liverpool and city spent loads of money were we have brought young players through the system now we are getting the reward COYS

  5. “Finishing top 4 means a very successful season.”

    Spurs could yet finish second or third in the Premier League. The momentum is there. Though to win the FA Cup would mean beating Manchester United first and then possibly having to face Chelsea in the final. None of these things have been achieved yet, but Spurs are close and such things are within Spurs’ capabilities.
