In-form Tottenham and England forward Harry Kane has played down suggestions that he could break Alan Shearer‘s all-time English Premier League goalscoring record, saying that it is unreasonably too early in his career to consider such things.
Kane’s hat-trick against Burnley last time out moved him to 93 Premier League goals, a great count, but he is still some way short of Shearer’s record of 260.
Despite the fact that Kane would clearly love to beat the Newcastle legend’s accomplishment, he believes that it is excessively too early thinking about such things.
“Of course you dream about it, but I’d be silly to look that far ahead I think,” Kane said. “I’ve still got a long way to go. A lot can happen in football.
“Hopefully I can stay fit, stay sharp and we’ll see what happens. Maybe if I get to 200 and I’ve still got a few more years left then I’ll start thinking about it.
“But for now I’m concentrating on each game. I’ve had a great 2017 and hopefully, for me, it’s an improved 2018 and I get even better.”
Meanwhile, Kane also insisted that team success comes ahead of personal accolades.
“I’m the striker, so a lot of the time I get the praise and get spoken about, but it’s so important that the team does well.
“But now, obviously equal, yeah I’m full of confidence going into Tuesday. But most importantly for me, it’s the wins that matter and Southampton’s going to be another tough game.”
