Pochettino jokes about how Kane should thank teammates

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino believes Harry Kane needs to thanks his teammates for his success this season.

Mauricio Pochettino has told the Premier League's official site that Harry Kane needs to thank his Tottenham Hotspur teammates, after the striker notched his 30th goal of the season yesterday.

Kane scored Totttenham's third goal in their 3-1 win over Newcastle United and it meant that he ticked off another milestone in what has been a hugely impressive breakthrough season.

Kane's goal ensured that he took all the headlines, but Pochettino insists that the 21-year-old has his teammates to thank for enabling him to have such success.

The Argentine boss joked that the striker should take the Tottenham squad out for dinner later this week to show his gratitude for their hard work.

"It's fantastic, congratulations to [Harry Kane] because he deserves this moment, it's historic, the first time since Gary Lineker in 1992 [that a Spurs player has scored 30 goals in all competitions]," he said.

"I think he needs to pay for a dinner this week for his team-mates. The team work a lot and try and help the striker score."

Kane's campaign has been remarkable and although Pochettino has suggested that Kane should pay for the dinner, it may be that his teammates should be taking the striker out.

Without Kane, Tottenham's season would have been nowhere near as successful, as the front man's finishing ability has single-handedly won them points on occasion. 

Kane has shown that he can score every type of goal and the hope is that he can continue to lead the line for Spurs with such success for years to come.
