John Terry has reminded Harry Kane he is yet to achieve anything in the game ahead of Sunday’s Capital One Cup final at Wembley, reports the Daily Star.
Kane has been one of the stars of the Premier League season, scoring 24 goals in all competitions to help Mauricio Pochettino’s men make the Wembley showpiece, as well as moving to within three points of the top four.
The England under-21 striker was particularly impressive during Tottenham’s 5-3 win over Chelsea on New Years, Day, scoring two goals and creating two others on a day to forget for Terry and Chelsea.
Kane will renew his battle with Chelsea tomorrow as the London rivals go head-to-head for the first silverware of the season, and Terry has aimed a cheeky dig at Tottenham’s star man in the build up.
Terry said: “He has got to be able to do that year after year – and for England I hope he does.
“It is great to see young players coming through and getting their opportunities and staying in the squad so if he keeps scoring there’s no reason why he can’t stay in.
“He is a very good player. His movement is fantastic and he is in great goal-scoring form. But there’s still a long way to go.”
Terry has also played down talk Chelsea will be looking for revenge following their 5-3 defeat last month, pointing to the fact the Blues beat Tottenham 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in early December.
He said: “Everyone is rattling on about that. But for me it was fairly comfortable for us at the Bridge when we won 3-0.
“Listen, you do get beat throughout the season, it’s not our only defeat this season. Obviously at the time we were disappointed but you move on and bounce back the following week.
“So I don’t see it as a revenge thing, ‘Oh we have to beat them because they beat us 5-3! We also remember we beat them 3-0. That’s football. “
