The former Tottenham boss wants to see 50 more from the 22-year-old.

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Ossie Ardiles has congratulated striker Harry Kane on his achievement of reaching 50 goals at White Hart Lane.

And the Argentine now wants the young striker to go on and net another half a century for the north London side. For now, he remains Tottenham's only out-and-out centre-forward.

Kane's latest strike came from the penalty spot against Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, which earned Mauricio Pochettino's men an FA Cup third-round replay.

There has been plenty of talk about Kane's future of late but it has either been ill advised or badly researched.

It looks like Kane will remain at Spurs for some time to come, if not a number of years.

Considering how quickly the 22-year-old has reached 50 goals, it shouldn't take the Tottenham hero that long to net his next 50, providing he keeps this kind of form up.

A back-up striker should help increase that number, though. Instead of overworking Kane and risking injury, having a deputy will assist him long term, rather than see him lose his place in the Spurs side.
