Harry Kane: I Want to be to Tottenham What Ryan Giggs Was to Manchester United

Harry Kane: I Want to be to Tottenham What Ryan Giggs Was to Manchester United

Harry Kane insists he can become to Tottenham what Ryan Giggs has been to Manchester United.

The Spurs striker has enjoyed a startling rise to prominence this season after spending five years in the first team without really making an impact.

Under previous managers, the 21-year-old was sent out on loan four times to lower league teams but failed to really impress.

But back at White Hart Lane under Mauricio Pochettino, Kane has hit 19 goals in 22 games this season is firmly a fans’ favourite among the Tottenham faithful.

Asked about his future by the London Evening Standard this week, the hitman hopes he can spend the rest of his career with the club just like Giggs did at Old Trafford and Steven Gerrard has at Anfield.

He said:

I don’t see why not. Tottenham are a great club on the rise. I hope we get better and I’d love to stay here for as long as possible.

If I’m still here in 10 years, I’d be over the moon. A lot of players today, when they do well, they end up going to another club or moving abroad. It depends on the situation at the time but at the moment, I’m looking t be a Tottenham player for many years.

You look at players like Ledley, Ryan Giggs and Steven Gerrard. To stay at one club at the top-level the way they have shows how good they have been. It’s great for them and great for the game. It’s fantastic for the fans to have players who have been there for so many years.

Spurs fans can rest assured that it will take a mega money offer from somewhere to get their prized asset out of the club.

Kane signed a new five-and-a-half-year deal with Tottenham earlier this week and doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere beyond that either.
