Harry Kane Says Spurs Not Phased by ‘Chokers’ Label

Tottenham Hotspur’s star striker, Harry Kane, has defended his team after many critics once again labeled the second-place club as ‘chokers’ for failing to win the English Premier League for the the second year in a row.

Tottenham watched in vain as Chelsea was crowned champions of England on Friday evening, after they beat West Brom 1-0, and became the title holders for the 2016/2017 season.

The same thing happened to Tottenham last season, when Leicester City stole the title from them with just a few points.

However, Kane has said that he is not phased about the Spurs being labeled ‘chokers’ and is confident that his team can, finally, claim the title in the 2017/2018 season.

“Everyone just has a special connection here. It’s a special bond and I don’t think you always get that at clubs…That has to motivate us to hopefully be out there next year lifting a Premier League together,” Kane said.

He continued, saying that the team is like a family and that he believes they have much to be grateful for and to look forward to.

“We’re a family on and off the pitch. We work so hard as a group. Look, there are not many better teams to be at around the world at the moment…We’ve got a very bright future, a great squad, a team that’s hungry to win and to learn and to get better,” he said.

He also touched on the subject of possible transfers in the upcoming transfer window, but said that most of the Spurs squad will stay where they are.

“Of course there’s going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I’d be very surprised if most of us aren’t still here next season” he concluded.
