Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has revealed that he hopes to win the Ballon d’Or.
After scoring 29 goals from 30 appearances in the Premier League this past season, Kane won the English League’s golden boot award and also firmly established himself as arguably one of the best strikers in World Football.
For the past nine years, the Ballon d’Or award has been shared by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Kane is confident that he can be the man to break the stronghold of the duo on the award and said, “I’d do whatever I can to win that big gold trophy. It is definitely something I aspire to do.
“Ronaldo won La Liga and the Champions League and that is why he wins it. Messi is in a similar situation. To do that it isn’t just individual, it is about a team winning trophies and, hopefully, that is what I can do at Tottenham.”
Considering that Messi and Ronaldo are both approaching the latter years of their careers, Kane will have a strong chance of winning the award in the near future if he is able to grow in terms of his performances.
