Spurs’ striker Harry Kane says their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool will motivate them to go one better in the upcoming season.
Kane and co. suffered a 2-0 loss to Liverpool in the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid to deny them their first silverware since 2008. It was their first ever Champions League final.
Spurs also finished fourth in the Premier League but the England international believes those near misses will drive the club on.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Kane said:
“I think it just motivates you to get better. With the Champions League final, you want to play in those games all the time.
“We know it’s going to be tough to get back there this year and it’s down to us to perform.”
The London side have bolstered their squad a bit by signing Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon this summer and Kane thinks they have what it takes to compete with the top Premier League rivals.
Asked if they could go for the title, he replied:
“That’s always the aim. The manager has full trust in the squad. Whoever he gets in or gets rid of, that’s his choice; he’s the boss.
“Whatever happens from now until the end of the window, we know we’ve got a strong enough squad to compete. The top six is really tight so we just want to put a good run together.”
