Great feeling to beat record, says Kane

Great feeling to beat record, says Kane

"I've always said that when people doubt me I want to prove them wrong whether it's at a young age or now, that's just my mindset, something in me since a young age".

The striker scored a hat-trick in the Boxing Day win over Southampton to also break Alan Shearer's record for Premier League goals in a calendar year, but says that team honours remain his primary motivation.

Hugo says Harry is the best striker he has played with and insists he is "by the side" of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

At the end of the day, the 25-year-old stands tall with the title of England's best goalscorer for club and country for the year of 2017 (39), above Shearer (36), Robin van Persie (35), Thierry Henry (34) and Ruud van Nistelrooy (30).

The England worldwide scored a hat-trick in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Southampton to eclipse Alan Shearer's 22-year-old record of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year, taking his tally to 39 for 2017.

"It's inevitable they will come calling or come asking, because he's that good a player and wouldn't look out of place in either of those teams", Shearer, the Premier League's record scorer, told the BBC.

Real Madrid have their eyes on the Tottenham striker and many are of the opinion the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will have to break the wage structure to keep a player of Kane's quality at the club.

Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero, the top strikers in the league alongside Kane in the last few years in the Premier League, are earning more than double his current wages at Tottenham.

"I'll keep getting better, keep trying to improve".

But passing Messi and Ronaldo this year gives the 24-year-old particular satisfaction and he accepts the challenge is now to match the historic duo's longevity.

Lloris added: "It's true, with players like Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo it's hard to catch them".

"When I played for Newcastle for 10 years I had offers before and during, but I wanted to stay at my club".
