Harry Kane has been speaking up about the importance of Tottenham’s League Cup clash against Burnley this week. And Spurs fans on social media are not pleased.
Speaking to the club’s official Twitter account, the England international stressed how the north London side want to go far in the competition after 13 years without any form of silverware.
Spurs last won the competition in 2008. The last time the Premier League giants have won anything of note. And this week will see Nuno Espirito Santo’s side face off against Burnley at home in the tournament.
With Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea still in the League Cup, Tottenham have their work cut out if they’re to secure silverware in the tournament this season.
And Kane believes that Wednesday night’s clash against Burnley will be a key clash. Tottenham lost on Sunday to West Ham, so a result in the League Cup could be what’s needed to renew confidence around the club.
Kane said when asked about this week’s League Cup clash against Burnley: “Make no mistake about it, the Burnley game is crucial and it’s a competition that we want to go as far as possible in.”
Tottenham fans left baffled by Kane’s League Cup comments
Whilst Kane’s comments probably came off as good-natured, some Tottenham fans on social media were not pleased with what the England captain had to say on the League Cup.
Here’s what some Spurs supporters had to say on Twitter about Kane’s League Cup comments…

Wow we've set our standards as the dizzy heights of the carabao Cup now… We've gone so far backwards I'm past caring— Lee OJ Simpson (@LeeSimpson5) October 24, 2021
That’s the level he’s setting now…until January. 🙄— Jide (@JideHowardChase) October 24, 2021
Nothing will ever change my view that he should have been sold after pulling that pre-season no show.
No player, no matter how good or important, should think he’s bigger than the club.
Levy wanted to take this squad into a super league. Has he got no shame. #ENICOut— Gal (@garysmith01) October 24, 2021
