- Harry Kane has surpassed Jimmy Greaves.
- He scored his 267th goal in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Manchester City.
- He now aspires to break Alan Shearer’s 260-goal Premier League record.
Harry Kane, who has surpassed Jimmy Greaves to become Tottenham Hotspur’s all-time leading scorer, insists he still has “plenty of goals to come.”
The 1-0 victory over Manchester City featured the 267th goal for Spurs by the England captain.
The 29-year-old Kane now aspires to break Alan Shearer’s 260-goal Premier League record.
“The bar has been set by Alan. I’ll try to defeat it “Kane, who has 200 goals in the Premier League, stated.
“Shearer will undoubtedly be watching, but I’m not certain if he’ll be pleased or not. I’m in high spirits, and I have a lot of ambitions ahead.”
Between 1961 and 1970, Greaves, who began his career at Chelsea, scored 266 goals in 379 games for Spurs.
Kane debuted with Spurs in 2011 and has since appeared 416 times.
In Sunday’s game against City, Kane finished smartly, firing a low shot after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg had put him up in the box.
Kane said on media, “When you look at the legends who have been here, to overtake Jimmy Greaves – one of the greatest to play the game – I’m incredibly appreciative.
After Shearer and Wayne Rooney, who scored 208 goals combined, Kane is the Premier League’s third-highest scorer overall since the league’s inception in 1992.
He has 19 goals overall and 17 league goals this year for Spurs, which is 11 more than Son Heung-min, the club’s second-highest scorer.
Kane is also on the verge of overtaking Rooney as England’s top scorer all-time with one more goal. He and Rooney are tied on 53.
