Harry Kane says Man United's Class of 92 can inspire Tottenham's Premier League title bid

Tottenham WHL

The likes of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes were important members of the Red Devils side that won the title in 1996.

Harry Kane has suggested that title-chasing Tottenham can take inspiration from the Manchester United side that won the Premier League crown in 1996, The Sun reports.

Despite being written off by pundit Alan Hansen due to the number of youngsters in their squad, the Red Devils would go on to win the league ahead of Newcastle, with the famous Class of 92 - David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Phil Neville - all proving to be integral members of the squad.

With Mauricio Pochettino's current side boasting an average age of just 24 - which makes them two years younger than the United team that triumphed 20 years ago (via The Sun) - Kane explained that Spurs can take plenty of belief from Sir Alex Ferguson's side's achievements. 

"It shows that it can be done. They had a great team and dominated for years," he said, as reported by The Sun.

"With our squad, how young it is, and adding the new stadium in a few years, the future is bright."

While the experienced men like Hugo Lloris and Jan Vertonghen have been crucial to Spurs' success, it has arguably been their cluster of younger players that have really caught the imagination in recent seasons. 

As well as Harry Kane, the likes of Dele Alli and Eric Dier have inspired the club into the title picture, and it could be their continued good form that decides whether the league trophy will be heading to White Hart Lane at the end of the campaign.

And while some may question Spurs' chances of clawing back the five point gap that separates them from leaders Leicester, United were 12 points adrift of the Magpies in January 1996, but managed to catch them and win their third title in four years.
