Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane wins the 2015/16 Barclays Golden Boot Award, scoring 25 goals.

Speaking to Tottenham Hotspur's official website, striker Harry Kane revealed that praise from some Spurs legends made him feel 10 feet tall.

The 22-year-old, who netted 31 times in the 2014-15 campaign, scored 25 Premier League goals this past season to win the Golden Boot and rubbish those one-season wonder jibes which came his way after failing to score in any of Tottenham's first nine games.

Teddy Sheringham, Les Ferdinand and Robbie Keane all heaped praise on the young England hitman after breaking the club's record of 21 goals in the Premier League, comments which Kane admits made him feel like a giant.

“It made me feel 10 feet tall. It’s hard not to get excited when you hear players like that talk about you in that way," he told Spurs' website.

"But again, you have to stay grounded. I’ll take it all in and use it for confidence. That’s what I do, take positives like that out there and try to express myself on the pitch.”

If he wasn't before, Kane is certainly the real deal on the back of that 25-goal season. It did not lead to anything but Champions League qualification, with the title looking possible for so long, but Tottenham can rest assure knowing they have a striker good enough to fire them to the Premier League crown.

The key for manager Mauricio Pochettino is enhancing the squad to the point where every player is as proficient in their respective postions as Kane. Do that, and it's hard to doubt Spurs - who finished third this past season - won't come back with a vengeance.
