Not many teams better than Spurs, says Kane

Cape Town - Harry Kane expects the current Tottenham side to stick together in a bid to go one better than this season and claim Premier League honours.

Spurs pushed league winners Chelsea all the way to the title this term, having done the same with Leicester last year, before falling away in the final weeks.

But with Kane, and everyone at the club, seeing the improvements they have made under manager Mauricio Pochettino, he says there shouldn't be many departures as "there are not many better teams to be at around the world at the moment".

Speaking after his side's emotional farewell to White Hart Lane, where they signed off in style with a 2-1 win over Manchester United, Kane said: "We're a family on and off the pitch.

"We work so hard as a group and the staff, the manager and, look, there are not many better teams to be at around the world at the moment.

"We've got a very bright future, a great squad, a team that's hungry to win and to learn and to get better.

"Of course there's going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us aren't still here next season.

"It's a special bond and I don't think you always get that at clubs, that's why we've got to hold onto that, make that motivate us to hopefully be out there next year at Wembley lifting a Premier League together.

"We finished obviously third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first."

He added: "It was special out there on Sunday, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something?

"That's got to be our next step. We're young but we're getting more experience year in, year out.

"We've just got to go and make it happen. We've got the team, we've got the belief, so next season hopefully it's our year."
