Kane outlines why leaving White Hart Lane won’t hurt Spurs

Harry Kane insists Tottenham will look to make Wembley a ‘fortress’ when they make the temporary switch next season.

Spurs have struggled at the stadium during their Champions League campaign and were also beaten there by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Many observers feel Tottenham will not be as strong next season due to leaving their home stadium, with Wembley a far cry from the tight pitch and intense atmosphere of White Hart Lane, where they dropped just four points in 2016-17.

But Kane is determined they can turn what many perceive to be a negative into a positive.

“We’ve got to believe,” Kane said of the transition.

“I think we had 30-odd thousand throughout the whole season, we’re going to have 80-odd thousand next year so we’ve got to make that a fortress as well.

“We’ve got to get the fans behind us, we’ve got to keep the fans believing and, look, we have got to just believe in ourselves.

“We finished obviously third last season, second this year – we’ve got to try and take that next step and try and finish first.

“Everything is heading in the right direction, but we’ve got to go out there and do it.”

Talent is there along with confidence – and the White Hart Lane send-off gave the players a glimpse of the party that lies in wait if they win a trophy.

“Exactly, that’s got to be the next celebration,” Kane added.

“It was special out there today, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something?

“That’s got to be our next step. We’re young but we’re getting more experience year in, year out.

“We’ve just got to go and make it happen. We’ve got the team, we’ve got the belief, so next season hopefully it’s our year.”
