Harry Kane reiterated his desire to win the biggest trophies and called the season “disappointing” after Tottenham failed again in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
Kane has been one of the most notable players in the Premier League and Europe for the past six years but, although Spurs have come close, he hasn’t been able to earn any silverware . Sunday’s loss to Manchester City followed the loss in the 2015 League Cup final and the 2019 Champions League final, while successive Premier League title challenges fell to the crucial step in 2016 and 2017.
The forward’s future has been the subject of intense speculation recently. given Tottenham’s decline over the past two years and Kane’s incredible form on the pitch.
This form was recognized by winning Premier League Player of the Year at the London Football Awards, but Kane is only interested in winning team gongs.
Kane, who has scored 21 goals and 13 assists in the league this season, beat competition from teammate Heung-Min Son, West Ham duo Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek and Mason Mount of Chelsea.
“The individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” he said on Sky Sports. “When I look back on the end of my career, these are the things I’m going to go over and take more of, but the goal right now as a player is to win team trophies.
“I want to win the biggest prizes there is and we don’t quite do it.
“It’s bittersweet, I’d rather win tag team trophies than this one, but it is. I’m proud to win it, that means it’s been a good season on the pitch.
“So I must try to continue what I’m doing.”
Kane recently said he would assess his future this summer. and the pointed comments about Spurs’ inability to win trophies could indicate he sees his future elsewhere.
But it will be incredibly difficult for any club to get him out of Tottenham this summer.
The club insist it is not for sale and that their star asset still has three years on its current contract, meaning it would take an astronomical bid to tempt tough negotiator Daniel Levy in any place. what a business, which is unlikely given the financial climate of the post-coronavirus gambling.
It looked like this season could have seen Spurs finally decorate their trophy cabinet as they led the Premier League in December and among Europa League favorites ahead of a shock loss to Dinamo Zagreb.
The 1-0 loss to City on Sunday put an end to any hope of silverware, so Kane says his side need to focus on the outside chances of still being able to make it into the top four.

Kane on a ‘disappointing season’
“It’s been a disappointing season if I’m completely honest,” said the 27-year-old.
“We had so many chances and been in so many games where we were in the lead or in a good position in the last 15 minutes. And we haven’t quite crossed the line for one reason or another.
“When we look back, we were in a great position in November and that time of December and January really put an end to what we were trying to achieve.
“We have a lot to improve. The trick now is to try to finish strong, to try to win the last five games. I hope to try to make way for the Champions League.
“It has been disappointing and as players we have to take responsibility and when we leave this summer we are really focusing on what we can improve and do better.”
