Harry Kane breaks Tottenham record with goal against Man City

Harry Kane has broken Jimmy Greaves’ record to become Tottenham’s all-time top goalscorer with his 267th goal for the club.

The England captain reached the landmark with the opening goal in Sunday’s Premier League match against Manchester City.

Kane’s strike was also his 200th goal in the Premier League as he chases former England striker Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260.

Greaves scored 266 goals in 379 appearances for Tottenham between 1961 and 1970.

Kane surpassed the England World Cup winner in his 417th appearance for Spurs, having made his Tottenham debut in 2011.

‘Harry Kane is pure gold,’ former Manchester United defender Gary Neville said on Sky Sports. ‘That man has created history at this club.’

Ex-Premier League striker Glenn Murray added on BBC Radio 5 Live: ‘What a moment for Harry Kane and these Tottenham fans. To be able to do it at his home stadium in front of all of these people here.

‘A special moment that he will never ever forget, to be the all time leading scorer at Tottenham Hotspur. You could see he was waving to his family’s box.

‘He’s done it now and it’s time to really streak ahead and make that record his own.’
