According to Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, Harry Kane is on course to break all the goal-scoring records in top-flight English football after setting his latest landmark on Saturday.
The Argentine was left purring again after watching Kane break the club’s Premier League record, set by Teddy Sheringham, with a double that took his career tally to 98 goals in the 4-0 thrashing of Everton at Wembley.
-He’s such a talented player, so professional and I‘m very happy. He deserves all the credit and the praise. This way, he’s going to break all the records in the Premier League and in England. The good thing is Jimmy Greaves’ (all-time club record) is far away, so not every week he is going to break something, Pochettino told BT Sport.
Kane, who ended 2017 as Europe’s leading marksman of the year in the top five leagues, has started 2018 in the same vein but, even while homing in on 100 league goals for Spurs, he remains far adrift of the 220 notched by the great Greaves.
