Interview with Harry Kane - Part 2

11 August 2016

Following the recent announcement that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club are to play their Champions League fixtures for the 2016/17 season at Wembley Stadium, we caught up with England and Tottenham striker - Harry Kane, to ask how the team is feeling about playing at this prestigious stadium in Brent.

 

If you had to win one trophy only, would the Champions League trophy be it?

 

Harry: You'd have to say the Premier League and Champions League are the two big prizes and to win the Champions League and therefore be crowned the best in Europe would be incredible.

 

How much are you looking forward to playing Champions League football this season?

 

Harry: I can't wait. You always want to test yourselves against the best teams in Europe and that's what the Champions League is all about.

 

What is it about the Champions League that makes the competition so special?

 

Harry: Like I said, it's the best teams in Europe all together, different styles and testing yourselves against them.

 

How far do you think Spurs can go in the competition?

 

Harry: We've got a great side here and it's not about us just participating in it, we want to do well and progress. We'll give everything to go as far as possible.

 

Now that our Champions League campaign is nearly upon us, has it really sunk in that we're about to start out in the competition once more?

 

Harry: It's what the club has always been aiming for and that was the aim at the start of last season, to get into the Champions League, and we managed that. It isn't just about participating in the Champions League though, we want to progress, do as well as we can, keep getting better and hopefully go as far as we can in the competition."

 

How tough is it going to be to balance Premier League and Champions League football this season, as opposed to Premier League and Europa League action?

 

Harry: It'll be a challenge. We'll be playing better teams and they're tougher games so it maybe takes a little bit more out of you but that's part of it. If you want to be a top team you have to be able to cope with that and deal with it so we'll have to manage that throughout the season. The manager is very good at things like that, so we've just got to prepare well and see how we get on. It's going to be an exciting season.

 

Tottenham Hotspur gave the local Wembley community the chance to win two VIP places at one of their Wembley Stadium Group Stage games.
