“Hi everyone, just here on the pitch after a really special night,” Kane began. “To break the all-time leading goal scorer record for Tottenham Hotspur is just a dream come true … No better place to do it than in front of our home fans and to win the game against a really tough side and a really important three points. … Just a really special night and a big thank you to everyone back home and [the fans] in the stadium and to everyone who’s helped me to get to where I am now and have supported me. I’m really grateful and just really proud, so thank you and I’ll see you soon.”
