The 26-year-old striker admitted that making it to the top four is a must for Tottenham, while claiming that there was absolutely no margin for error in the final run-in.
In an interview with the club’s official website (h/t Sky Sports), he said:
“We’ve got to try to finish in the top four. There’s no doubt about that. Realistically we’re going to have to win seven or eight of the games we have left to get in the Champions League.
“That’s got to be our aim and we’ve got to make sure we finish strongly if we want to be playing Champions League football next season.”
The England captain had been ruled out with a hamstring problem since the turn of the year and hasn’t played for close to six months now. And, Kane said he felt sharp upon his return. He added that the suspension of football helped him complete his recovery slowly, without feeling the pressure of missing out on games. (h/t Sky Sports)
The Premier League returns to action on June 17. Tottenham will resume things with a contest against top four hopefuls Manchester United. And Kane admitted that it will be a “massive” match in the race for a Champions League spot. (h/t Sky Sports)
