@alanshearer's record for the most @premierleague goals in a calendar year! #OneOfOurOwn pic.twitter.com/5MuGgGwMVj — Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) December 23, 2017Pochettino said Kane's tally was just reward for the effort he has put into his game. "During my three and a half years with Tottenham, he always surprises me - not only with goals but his contribution, with his attitude, professional ethic, how he works across the pitch, he is a massive example for everyone. "I am so happy for him, he needs one more to set the record over Alan and I think that is a massive individual achievement for him," he said. Asked whether Kane could go on to beat Shearer's career record of 260 Premier League goals, Pochettino noted the consistency the former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers striker showed throughout his career but said Kane had the quality to produce something similar.
"We hope for Tottenham and for him and I wish that every season (year) he will score 50 or more," he said. "I think he can still improve, he is 24 and the player arrives at their best 27, 28, 29 and it depends how professional you are. "Kane, if he keeps that mentality, keeps working hard every day, can play until he wants to. But for me, he can still improve in his game."
