'A day he'll never forget' - Harry on Harry

Posted on 23 November 2016  - 04:00

Harry Winks lived the Spurs dream against West Ham - and few players knew better of the unbridled joy the Academy graduate experienced than another player to walk the same path, Harry Kane.

The two Harrys took us to victory in a thriller against the Hammers.

Winks put in a Man of the Match display on his first start in the Premier League that included his first Spurs goal before Kane scored twice in the last few minutes as we turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 victory.

Still only 20, Winks also started his first Champions League game at Monaco on Tuesday having been at the Club since the age of five. A squad regular for the last two seasons under Mauricio Pochettino, he's now made 13 appearances including 10 this term.

Kane, now 23, made his breakthrough at the end of the 2013-14 campaign and as they say, the rest is history - suffice to say, he's now scored 70 goals in 136 appearances for us.

On 'Winksy', Harry said: "It's incredible, I’ve been in a very similar situation and you wait for your chance, train hard, wait for the nod and make sure you are prepared.

"Harry was outstanding against West Ham, maybe the best player on the pitch for us and for him to score and for us to win in the end, that’s a day he’ll never forget. We’re all buzzing for him. He fully deserves it. He works hard in training and he made sure he was ready.

"He’s been here 15 years and he’s probably been dreaming of that moment the whole time. The gaffer has thrown him in, he showed again he’s not afraid to play young players or players who haven’t had a lot of experience, he believes in him and Harry repaid him, so full credit to everyone."
