Jose Mourinho backs Harry Kane to end Tottenham trophy drought in the League Cup final
The English skipper is one of the finest strikers in world football. While he has won numerous individual accolades, the same has not been forthcoming on a collective scale. Soon to be 28 and in the prime of his career, Kane’s trophy haul currently stands at a grand ‘zero’.
The player had also admitted last year that he could leave Tottenham if he feels his ambitions aren’t being realised by the club. (h/t The Times)
As Mourinho points out, Kane is just one game away from ending his and Spurs’ trophy drought. The North Londoners take on manchester City in this season’s Carabao Cup final on 25th April.
“To win a trophy, he just needs to win one game.”
Mourinho is aware that Spurs face a tough challenge in City, who have been in exemplary form of late. Pep Guardiola’s side have rediscovered their mojo and are now comfortably the best team in the land.
“I know that it is against probably the team that is going to win the Premier League this year, so I think it is a very difficult final that we will have to play.:
The Spurs boss also refused to give a clear answer after being asked if Kane would be willing to stay put at Spurs to realise his ambitions of winning trophies. He believes the Spurs star should fight for just that.
“The way to describe it is that he needs to fight for it, to fight for it.”
