H’Kane fires Golden Boot warning to rivals



HARRY Kane says the Premier League Golden Boot is anyone’s to claim going into the final eight games of the season.
The Tottenham and England striker is one of a quartet of players on 17 goals, one behind leader Sergio Aguero, as the Premier League season approaches its denouement.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Arsenal and Liverpool duo, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are level with Kane whilst Raheem Sterling is within striking distance of his Manchester City team-mate Aguero with 15 to his name in the top flight.
Kane missed out on the chance to be the first striker since Thierry Henry to win three straight Golden Boots when Mohamed Salah’s remarkable tally of 32 carried him to last season’s award. The 25-year-old is eager to get it back, even if it is only because he knows his goals could be crucial to Spurs’ hopes in the final weeks of the season.
“It’s been a tight year obviously,” Kane said. “I’m one goal behind at the moment, with eight games to play, it’s kind of anyones.
“We’ll see. I feel in good shape. I’m sure Aguero does, Raheem does.
“All the players up there will be looking to get that reward.
“For me it’s just a bonus, at the end of the year I’ll be looking to help my team as much as possible. Being a striker that means trying to score goals.
“Even when I won the Golden Boot a few years ago I was a few behind with a few to play, goals can come thick and fast at some stages.”
Kane and Sterling could find themselves vying for individual honours at a time when much of the England squad will also be competing in the latter stages of the Champions League and battling for the Premier League title.
However the England captain does not believe the current squad will be riven by the same club rivalries that obstructed the so-called ‘Golden Generation’ of the mid-2000s.
Kane said: “Since I’ve been here it’s been good, [Jordan] Henderson’s getting on with Raheem and Walks [Kyle Walker] and Trent [Alexander-Arnold]. Hendo and Raheem have known each other a long time, they’re good mates.
“Of course they want to beat each other but they’re not going to let that get in the way of what’s more important this week, the international game. I’ve not had to talk to them about that, they do that naturally.”
