Harry Kane has challenged Mohamed Salah to beat him to the Golden Boot for the Premier League’s top scorer again next season.
Salah scored his 32nd Premier League goal of the season in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Brighton on Sunday to finish two ahead of the Tottenham striker and set the record for the most goals scored in a 38-game campaign.
According to Sky Sports, Kane said: “Mo has done great this year, he deserves it, he deserves the Golden Boot. I am looking forward to the competition again next year.
“For me it is about doing it year after year. This is my fourth year now and the first time I have got to 30 goals in the Premier League. Now it’s about getting to 30 goals for the next two or three years, that’s the aim.
“Any player wants to do it on a consistent basis and that’s what defines a good player from a great player. He has done amazing this year and he looks like a great player, and we’ll see if we can both continue it next season.”
Kane’s 30-goal season was the best return of his career, after tallies of 25 and 29 in the previous two years, but not enough to claim a third-successive Golden Boot.
