Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been challenged to repeat this season’s brilliant scoring feats next year by his club manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The 21-year-old has enjoyed a breakthrough year for the North London outfit and became the first Spurs player since Gary Lineker in 1991-92 to score 30 goals in all competitions. He has also broken into the senior national side where he scored on his debut against Lithuania at Wembley back in March.
However, the goals have dried up for Kane in the last month as he has found the back of net just two goals in his last eight appearances for Spurs since making his England bow which has coincided with a drop in form for his north London side.
Despite the goal drought, Pochettino insists the PFA Young Player of the Year could get even better next year:
“I think Harry’s challenge for next season is to try to score the same number of goals again – or more.” He told reporters (via The Sunday Express).
“We need to push him to try to do that.” Pochettino added.
