Harry Kane is happy with his individual achievements on the pitch after an incredible record-breaking year – but his top priority is to win trophies for Tottenham in 2018.
Kane scored an incredible hat-trick as Spurs thrashed Southampton 5-2 at Wembley on Tuesday.
Kane’s hat-trick against the Saints took his goalscoring tally to 39 Premier League goals in 2017 and he smashed Alan Shearer’s 22-year record of 36 EPL goals in a calendar year.
He also overtook Lionel Messi’s tally of 54 goals to become highest goalscorer for club and country in the year 2017.
Kane now has 56 goals to his name for club and country in 2017.
His hat-trick against the Saints on Boxing Day was his eight – the most by any footballer in 2017. And the Three Lions star promised to bring together his entire collection of match balls and upload a picture on social media before the year ends.
Tottenham finished as runners up in the Premier League and lost to Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup last season.
Keeping personal accolades aside, Kane has set himself a target of winning trophies for Tottenham.
“With the birth of my daughter as well, 2017 has been amazing,” Kane said.
“Hopefully 2018 will be even better. And I’ve always said team trophies are what I want to achieve.
“We’ve got the FA Cup to look at, a competition with a good chance for us to win.
“In the Champions League we’ve shown we can beat the best, we’ve just got to see how far we can go in that.
“In the Premier League, we’ve just got to fight for the top four and see how high we can get. There is still a lot to play for.
“For me, though, it’s about winning trophies, not records. That’s always the aim.”
