Harry Kane has admitted that his goal right now as a player is to win team trophies. On the losing side at Wembley on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final as Man City claimed a slender 1-0 win, the England captain was crowned Premier League Player of the Year at the London Football Awards on Tuesday.
“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” he said on his latest individual signal. “When I look back at the end of my career, these are the things I will go over and take in more but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies.
“I want to be winning the biggest prizes there is to offer and we are not quite doing that. It is bittersweet, I would rather be winning team trophies and this one but it is what it is. I am proud to win it, it means it’s been a good season on the pitch. So I have got to try and continue what I am doing.”
In a really good position at the end of 2020 after topping the league midway through December, a disastrous set of results has seen the team put them in real danger of missing out on Champions League football for the second year in a row.
“It has been a disappointing season if I’m totally honest,” he admitted. “I think we’ve had so many opportunities, we’ve been in so many games where we’ve been ahead or we’ve been in a great position going into the last kind of 20 or 15 minutes and we haven’t quite got over the line for one reason or another.
“I think when we look back, like I say, we were in a great position come November and then that spell over December and January really put a halt to what we were hoping to achieve.
“We’ve still got loads to improve on. I guess the only thing now is to try and finish strong, try and win the last five games and hopefully try and make that Champions League spot.
“All in all it has been disappointing and as players we’ve got to take responsibility and when we go away in the summer really focus on what we can improve on and do better.”
