Kane laments poor end to season


Harry Kane has apologised to Tottenham fans following their 'unacceptable' finish to the season.

Tottenham's hopes of winning the Premier League title were ended when they were held to a 2-2 draw at Chelsea on May 2 and they opened the door to Arsenal with a 2-1 loss against Southampton.

A draw against relegated Newcastle would have been enough to secure a second-place behind Leicester but they slumped to a 5-1 loss, to allow Arsenal to finish ahead of them in the table.

Having picked up just two points from their last four matches, Kane admits the team lacked the mental strength to fight for second place after missing out on the title and he believes they will have to improve if they are to challenge next season.

"Probably when we didn’t have a chance of winning the league, the mentality wasn’t there. It leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouths over the summer," Kane explained.

"The performance at Newcastle was one of the worst I’ve ever been involved in it and all we can do is apologise to the fans. To concede three goals after they had gone down to 10 men was unacceptable.

"We know how much finishing above Arsenal means to the fans and the club. When people think they’ve had a bad season and we’ve had a good one, and yet they still finish above us, it hurts.

"We needed to finish the season strongly and two points from the last four games is unacceptable considering how we played during the rest of the season.

"It probably started from the 1-1 draw with West Brom last month. It’s hard to put your finger on why. Days like Newcastle show there is still a lot more work to be done.

"We haven’t cracked it yet. We’re still learning, we’ve still got to work hard, we’ve still got to improve."
