Tottenham striker Harry Kane feels Chelsea players’ celebrations after Monday’s 2-2 draw, which ended his club’s title run, is an indication of Spurs’ success.
Despite seeing Spurs’ dreams of their first league title since 1961 dashed, Kane remains optimistic about the club’s future and also managed to work in a jibe at his opponents’ expense in a post-match interview with the BBC.
“When the ex-champions are celebrating like they won the league at the end, it shows that we’re doing something right,” he said.
Kane scored his 25th goal of the season to open the scoring and when Son Heung-min doubled their advantage, Spurs fans could be forgiven for thinking their title challenge was still alive. However, Gary Cahill and Eden Hazard put an end to this with two second-half strikes, effectively handing the title to Leicester City.
“We’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing,” Kane continued. “We’ve got a great bunch of lads, a great manager, great staff and we’ve just got to keep that and keep moving forward.
“We done all we could, we fought until the end, but it’s something we’ve got to learn from.
“I’m proud of everyone, I’m proud of the club and we’ve just got to keep moving in the right direction, finish the season off well now and look forward to next season.”
Kane ended the interview by giving credit to newly-crowned league champions Leicester City.
“We’re gutted. We’ve had a great season. Credit to Leicester. Well done to them for winning the league. They’ve been fantastic this season,” he said.
