Tottenham star Harry Kane backed to break Jimmy Greaves record after landmark Spurs goal


Tottenham striker Harry Kane can break Jimmy Greaves’ all-time goalscoring record, according to Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle. Kane scored his 200th goal for Spurs on his 300th appearance in Thursday’s 3-1 Europa League win at Ludogorets. The England captain is now third on the list of Tottenham’s top goalscorers of all time.

Jimmy Greaves sits top of the pile having scored 266 goals in 379 appearances for Spurs.

And 1961 double-winner Bobby Smith ended his Tottenham career on 208 goals in 317 outings.

Kane is closing in on Smith but Hoddle thinks Greaves’ record is within reach for the 27-year-old.

“Absolutely, I’m delighted for him,” Hoddle said on BT Sport.

Ludogorets quickly pulled back a goal after half time but Spurs were relatively comfortable and sealed the victory through Giovani Lo Celso.

Mourinho was demanding of his players in the build up to the match and insists he wasn’t completely happy with the performance.

“You are speaking about top players, Tottenham players, Premier League players,” he said.

“I always expect the maximum so I am always demanding. There are still things from this game I’m not happy with.

“There are players who quite clearly by the way they perform who give no chance to others to get in their position and people who aren’t playing regularly must feel that every minute is a chance to prove, to enjoy and give their maximum.”

Spurs have six points from their opening three Group J matches.
