Tottenham’s Harry Kane can reach 35 goals, says Spurs legend
Tottenham legend Mark Falco heaps praise on brilliant Spurs striker Harry Kane
Harry Kane is capable of scoring 35 goals before the season reaches its conclusion, according to former Spurs striker Mark Falco.
The England international, who has been nominated for the PFA player and young player of the year awards, has scored 29 goals in all competitions with six games remaining in the 2014/15 campaign for the north London side.
There is nothing better than playing and scoring goals for your club – that’s a feeling I know well!
Falcao, now 54, netted 29 times in the 1984/85 season, but Kane could move clear of the Spurs legend if the 21-year-old scores against Newcastle United at St James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The Hackney-born retired footballer is astounded by Kane’s meteoric rise this season, describing the Tottenham talisman as one of the most-improved players that the Premier League has seen for quite some time.
Falco told Tottenham’s website: “He has to be the most improved player we’ve seen for a while. I’m sure he will crack 30 goals soon and that’s a real achievement, perhaps it’s even harder these days as well. I just hope he keeps going, quickly gets over 30 goals and pushes towards 35, that would be great.
“It’s been brilliant to see him progress. He looks like he’s enjoying it, he’s delivering on the pitch and we all hope he goes further and further. He’s a fan at heart and you can see he’s enjoying what he’s doing.
“There is nothing better than playing and scoring goals for your club – that’s a feeling I know well!”
Kane, who was named the PFA player of the month for January and February, has scored 19 goals in 28 Premier League appearances this season.
