Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane is “on the verge of a trophy” with the club he loves “from the inside”, according to Roberto Soldado.
Kane has long been Spurs’ standout player, developing into one of the best strikers in the world at N17.
The 27-year-old has registered a staggering 217 goals in 328 competitive appearances for Spurs, as well as 46 assists.
However, he has yet to lift a major trophy with Spurs, despite coming close in the Premier League and Champions League.
The likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Man City have been linked with the England captain, who has three years left on his Tottenham contract.
However, former Spurs striker Soldado is confident that the north Londoners aren’t far off winning a trophy, and believes Kane will be there to lift it.
“I think Kane is on the verge of a trophy,” the Granada forward told AFP, as quoted by football.london.
“If it happens, I would really like him to be the captain to lift it because I know he feels the club, he loves it from the inside.”
Kane is Spurs through and through, but as long as silverware continues to elude the club, questions about his future at N17 won’t go away easily.
That said, Tottenham are in the League Cup final later this month, so the opportunity to lift a first trophy since 2008 is there.
And while Spurs have flattered to deceive far too often this season, the makings of a good team are there, as we’ve seen during those spells when the team was rampant in front of goal.
If Mourinho can strengthen his defence appropriately, then next term could look more like the finished product.
