Kane disappointed by third-placed finish

18 May 2016, 08:27

Cape Town - Tottenham striker Harry Kane admits it hurts to have finished below Arsenal in the Premier League standings following his team's slump in form.

Mauricio Pochettino's side failed to secure the runners-up spot in the league this term after their final two games of the campaign, against Southampton and Newcastle.

Those back-to-back defeats allowed the Gunners to overtake Spurs into second place after they beat relegated Aston Villa 4-0 on the last day.

The England international, whose 25 league goals saw him win the Golden Boot as top scorer, also revealed he would have given up the accolade if it meant his team would finish above their fierce north London rivals.

"It hurts and it will leave a bad taste in the mouth over the summer," Kane said. "It definitely makes it harder Arsenal finishing in second because we know how much it means to the fans.

"When people think they've had a bad season and we've had a good one yet they still finish above us, it hurts. It definitely makes it hard because we know how much it means to the fans and to the club."

He added: "It would have been nicer to have won the award on a better day. It's a personal achievement, and something I'm proud of, but if I had the choice between finishing second or having the golden boot, I would rather have won at Newcastle."

"We still had a lot to play for, so it's hard to put a finger on what went wrong. We just haven't been good enough in the last few games - it's not just Newcastle, we should never have lost to Southampton either.

"It probably started from drawing the West Brom game, but it's hard to say exactly what went wrong."
