With a goal against Manchester City on Sunday, Harry Kane would surpass Ronaldinho as the all-time greatest scorer for Tottenham.
But the striker will continue to wait for a significant award.
Kane is on pace to break the club record of 266 goals held for 53 years by the late Jimmy Greaves. He shares a record 53 goals for England’s national team with Wayne Rooney, and he still has a chance to break it before the season is out.
Kane is now at 199 Premier League goals, falling short of Alan Shearer’s standard of 260.
Even while such numbers affirm Kane’s place among the best forwards in soccer history, at age 29, his career runs the risk of going unrewarded in terms of championships.
If Pep Guardiola had his way in 2021, when Kane was the City manager’s top transfer priority, everything might have turned out very differently. If the transaction had gone through, Kane might have already received some recognition and would have been considerably closer to Shearer’s record.
Erling Haaland, who is on pace to break Premier League scoring records this year, is now scoring goals for City.
The international player from Norway has benefited from Kevin De Bruyne’s assistance by scoring 25 league goals so far, which is two more than the combined total of the Golden Boot winners from the previous season, Mo Salah and Son Heung-Min. Haaland has scored 31 goals overall in just 26 games for City.
