Sheringham ‘delighted’ Kane has broken his Tottenham Hotspur record

Harry Kane has been lighting up the football stage for some time now, and it does not seem that he is ready to slow down.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker surpassed multiple Ballon d’Or winners Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to be Europe’s top scorer in 2017.

Kane hit 56 goals for club and country and since 2018 rolled around, the England international has found the back of the net four times in as many outings in all competitions.

Those strikes, which came against AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup and Everton in the Premier League, also saw the striker beat Teddy Sheringham’s two club records.

Kane has now scored more than Sheringham’s 124-goal haul for Spurs in all competitions.

At the weekend, the 24-year-old surpassed the retired footballer’s tally of 97 Premier League goals for the North London outfit.

Sheringham has now given his reaction to the achievement in an interview with the club’s official website.

“He’s special, isn’t he? I’ve spoken about him a lot of the last few years and I’m delighted it’s Harry who has broken my record. He’s a great lad and he wants to get better and better, even now. He’s at the top but he still wants to learn. He’s got the perfect manager and he’s playing for the club [at] the perfect time.”
