The 29-year-old has become Tottenham’s all-time leading goalscorer after surpassing Jimmy greaves’ record
Kane’s goal against Manchester City not only brought them 3 points but was also a personal milestone for the Englishman as well.
Kane breaks Jimmy Greaves goalscoring record
England skipper Harry Kane’s “magical moment” against Manchester City has made him Tottenham’s all-time leading goal scorer as he surpasses “complete hero” Jimmy Greaves.
Greaves’ record of 266 goals was broken as Kane scored his 267th goal for Spurs, which was coincidentally his 200th Premier League goal in his 304th appearance in the league.
“It’s a magical moment. I was so desperate to do it with a win“
Alan Shearer reached that record in 306 games and Wayne Rooney in 462 matches.
Speaking to the Sky Sports, Kane said: “It’s a magical moment. I was so desperate to do it with a win – once we went 1-0 up, it was about the clean sheet.
“To do it in front of the fans is a special moment. There has been so much talk about it, I just wanted to get it done. So, to do it in a big game against one of the best teams in the world is special.
“[Greaves] is a complete hero, one of the best strikers to play the game, so to be in that conversation is special. And to overtake him is a huge moment for me.”
Alan Shearer’s 260 goals in the Premier League seem to be the logical next target for Harry Kane.
“When I started playing regularly, it wasn’t even in my imagination to score 200 Premier League goals,” he added.
“To be there now is exciting, and I’ve got plenty of years left, so there will be a few more to come.”
