Antonio Conte expressed his desire to help Harry Kane wins trophy at Tottenham After his equal goalscoring record gave the team a 1-0 win over Fulham.
Kane snatched the only goal out of a dull west London finish with a trademark finish on the stroke of half-time when he turned around Tim Ream and curled into the bottom corner.
It was Kane’s 266th goal for the club and moved him level with Jimmy Greaves, who had scored since the 1970s as Spurs’ all-time top scorer.
However, the trophy still eludes the 29-year-old, who Conte revealed played on Monday night despite being unwell.
“Today he was amazing. I think he scored a wonderful goal. Killing, controlling the ball and kicking in like that. Only a world-class striker can score that goal,” said Conte.
“About the spirit I mentioned earlier. I want to stress that Harry didn’t play very well. But he wanted to play because he understood the moment.”
“He understands that he is a reference point for us, for me, for the other players and with [goalkeeper] Hugo [Lloris], they are two players that are reference points for the dressing room. Today I am really Happy because I think he won a goal.
“Of course, I want to help him and me. including his teammates try to do what is important Winning the title with Tottenham Because he loves Tottenham.
“Tottenham is in his heart. And it would be nice if we could win together. So having these stats is important. But I think it might be more important if you win trophies.
Victory at Craven Cottage ended a difficult time for Spurs. which lost 4-2 to Manchester City on Thursday night and 24 hours later found Sporting director Fabio Paratici has been banned for 30 months for financial irregularities during his time at Juventus.
Paratici’s suspension is effective only in Italy. And he is waiting for a written reason before a decision on the appeal can be made.
a day later small group supporters protested outside the club’s training ground in Enfield. It called on ENIC owner and chairman Daniel Levy to leave.
Calls for Levy to leave Tottenham grew throughout the 1-0 win over Fulham which put Spurs within three points of third.
Conte added: “It’s a good answer. After defeats to Arsenal and Manchester City first and second in the table, I asked the players to highlight their highlights from last season.
“The will, the desire, and the suffering during the time of your suffering. Today we don’t suffer much. But I saw that they were ready. So it could be a starting point for us.
“Let’s not forget that we played against a really surprising team this season with the wins they managed to beat us in the table. Coming here is not easy.”
“For this reason i am really happy Because I reiterate that I saw once again the attributes that brought us places in the Champions League last season.
Fulham boss Marco Silva was disappointed after his side failed to interpret a positive result in the first half.
He also felt Son Heung-min could have been shown a red card for his 28th-minute collision with Kenny Tete when he caught the home defender high by the ankle.
“Yes, I have seen it. And I think it was probably more than a yellow card in that moment,” said Silva.
“Obviously Kane decides. He is a great footballer too. But we can control it. And we were punished with a great finish from him.
