KEY POINTS

  • Harry Kane scores his 200th goal as part of the Tottenham Hotspur
  • Kane is not putting much attention to his personal feat
  • Jose Mourinho believes Kane can eventually break more records

Harry Kane showed off his scoring brilliance in Tottenham's 3-1 victory on Thursday versus Ludogorets Razgrad in the UEFA Europa League.

The Spurs' star reached a significant milestone in Tottenham’s all-time scoring list by tallying 200 goals played in 300 games. The forward is now ranked third overall right behind Bobby Smith (208) and Jimmy Greaves (266) in this distinction.

Although Kane is now standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the organization's revered legends, he chose to downplay the feat.

"It's not on my mind," Kane said, as quoted by Goal.

Overtaking the aforementioned two football greats may be on the horizon for Kane, but the 27-year-old stressed that it’s not his main priority at the moment.

The England national team captain would rather put more emphasis on winning games for the Spurs.

"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,” he stated.

For Kane, it is all about giving back to the club that played an important role in developing him as a fierce booter since he learned how to dribble the football in his hometown of Walthamstow.

"Time goes so quick. It feels like yesterday [when] I scored 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," he reflected.

Kane admitted that his rousing performance in the match was driven by their loss to Antwerp in the same tournament.

"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,” he explained.

While Kane isn’t looking much into his achievement, head coach Jose Mourinho has a lot of good things to say about it. The 57-year-old manager is certain that the English star will be looked up to like Smith and Greaves.

"The numbers make him a club legend," manager Jose Mourinho said via BBC. "It is just a question of time. One more month, one less month. It's just a question of time."

Tottenham is set to return to the pitch on Sunday for an English Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.
