Harry Kane insists Tottenham Hotspur need to step up to win trophies

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane believes the team need to step up with strong performances under pressure, if they are to cease their decade-long trophy drought. The north London side were within five points off the top of the Premier League last month but that deficit has doubled amid a run of three winless matches.

In a report covered by Goal.com, Kane said that the team need to step up with their showing under pressure which has simply not been the case up to now, he said: "The thing for us now, kind of like this week, when the pressure is on and we need to step up, we need to find a way to get it done. We haven't done that in recent years, we haven't done that this week and that will be the difference. That is the turning point that we need to try and achieve. I don't think it's far away but I think what the gaffer was saying was it's not a guarantee that if you improve you are still going to win things."

“Kane has been a consistent performer for Spurs over the past five years but there have been reports“ suggesting that he could assess his future after the end of next season. The England international is determined to play through the first full campaign at the new homeground next term, but his future could thereafter come under question, should “Spurs’ trophyless run continue“.

Prior to that, Spurs still have the chance to compete for the Premier League and Champions League crowns this season, and the latter provides them with a slight chance. Spurs are currently holding a 3-0 advantage over Borussia Dortmund after the home leg of the Champions League round of 16 tie, and they are favourites to reach the quarter final barring a sensational comeback from the Germans.
