Tottenham Hotspur fans blast UEFA for leaving Kane out of TOTY

Harry Kane had the almost-perfect 2017 on an individual level.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker ended the calendar year as top scorer in Europe.

The England international netted 56 goals, surpassing Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who have 10 Ballon d’Or trophies between them.

Kane’s stock has certainly risen over the last 12 months, and as expected, the striker has been linked with big-money moves away from Tottenham.

Despite his individual achievements, the 24-year-old has not yet won any silverware with Spurs.

The club came close in the previous two seasons by finishing third and second respectively, but in the current campaign, the title is beyond them as Manchester City have a 21-point advantage.

Due to Kane’s goalscoring heroics during 2017, many assumed that he would have been selected as part of UEFA’s team of the year, but the forward missed out.

In fact, Chelsea star Eden Hazard was picked as part of an attacking trio with Ronaldo and Messi.

Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne was the only other Premier League representative in UEFA’s best XI.

As anticipated, Tottenham fans were less than impressed with the snub.
