Kane plays it cool about Greaves record after hitting 200th Spurs goal

Tottenham striker Harry Kane hit his 200th Spurs goal in Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League win over Ludogorets but insists he is not thinking about becoming the club’s all-time top scorer.

Kane headed home Lucas Moura’s corner in the 13th minute to reach his double century for Spurs in 300 appearances across all competitions.

He has scored 121 goals with his right foot, 44 with his left and 34 with his head, plus one with another part of his body, with 177 of those coming inside the box and 23 from outside.

The 27-year-old, who has scored 30 penalties but just one direct free-kick, sits third on Tottenham’s all-time list, eight goals behind second-place Bobby Smith and 66 behind Jimmy Greaves.

“It’s not on my mind,” Kane told BT Sport when asked if he was thinking about overtaking those two.

“It’s something that you guys will let me know once I pass that. These are all great things. It’s kind of hard to take them in when you’re playing. Once you finish your career you take them all in.

“Time goes so quick, it feels like yesterday I was scoring that first goal for Spurs. It’s a great achievement to reach 200 goals, but for sure hopefully there’s a few more left. Let’s keep them coming.”

Spurs suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Royal Antwerp in their previous Europa League game and Kane says it was important to get back to winning ways in the competition.

“We had to bounce back,” he said. “I don’t think it was our greatest performance tonight but we got the job done. It’s never easy coming away in Europe, as last week showed.

“We put ourselves in a nice position. After the international break we play these again at home, so if we win the next couple it should be enough to get through.”
