Antonio Conte tips Harry Kane to 'beat every record'

Antonio Conte tips Harry Kane to 'beat every record'

Antonio Conte expects Harry Kane to "beat every record" as he moved closer to Jimmy Greaves' Tottenham goal tally.

The striker hit a brace as Spurs defeated Crystal Palace 4-0 and is now just two behind Greaves' record total of 266 and the coach thinks he will only go on to achieve more milestones.

The Tottenham coach said: "I think to speak about Harry, I think a bit that we waste time to explain about the type of player that he is. I repeat, we are talking about a really world-class striker and he’s going to beat every record with the goals.

"For us he’s an important point of reference, not only for the goal but also on the pitch and with Hugo (Lloris) our captain. Especially in the difficult moments, Harry, you know that he is ready to fight, ready to help the team-mates, ready to solve the situation with a goal, with an assist.

"To continue this way, to face every situation positive or negative, always with a great spirit, great character, to overcome the difficulty I think in this period and also before the start of the World Cup."

Tottenham narrowed the gap on the top four with the win and Conte was pleased to see his team bounce back after the disappointing loss to Aston Villa.

He said: "To recover three days after a defeat at home where the expectation was to try to win, and to go again in a really good position in the table was not easy for the atmosphere, for the players, but the response today was really good because I think my players showed me every time great character, great personality in every situation."
