TOTTENHAM ended an impressive season on a high with a magnificent seven at Hull – and, of course, Harry Kane was at the centre of the celebrations yet again.
Two hat-tricks in a week took the 23-year-old striker’s Premier League tally to 29 goals for the season – his greatest haul in a league campaign – to ensure he retains the Golden Boot.
He left his rivals trailing in his wake with a stunning finish to a season disrupted by injury early on.
Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Diego Costa and the likes simply could not live with the best striker in the country. Europe, perhaps. Maybe the world.
Mauricio Pochettino rates his talisman as one of the best strikers on the planet – and few would disagree with that.
Dele Alli, Victor Wanyama, Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld all got in on the goalscoring act. But this game; this season was all about King Kane.
Europe’s big guns will no doubt come knocking – but Harry’s going nowhere. How could Pochettino replace him?
Chelsea, in the end, were too good to catch but Spurs are in a positive place and will be going all-out for the Premier League title next season.
Kane, of course, was full of North London pride at the end of another fantastic campaign, and we can only wait and wonder what lies in store for the prolific Tottenham striker next time around.
The homegrown hero has already set himself a target of 100 Premier League goals next season. Don’t bet against it.
“I said to retain the golden boot would be special with the injuries I’ve had, so to score 29 goals in 30 games is something I feel proud of,” he said after the game.
As quoted on the BBC Sport website – http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39912022 – Pochettino added: “For me, Harry is amazing for the team, scoring goals, and is one of the best strikers in the world.”
