Harry Kane equals Steven Gerrard's Player of the Month record

Postado Janeiro 13, 2018

Harry Kane has equalled Steven Gerrard's record of six Premier League Player of the Month awards after winning December's prize.

The Tottenham striker was delighted to match Gerrard's record, telling the Premier League: "It's awesome, very proud of that".

'I'd probably say my favourite goal was the one that broke the [calendar year] record against Southampton, ' he added.

"Obviously there's a lot of talk before the game about whether I'd do it or not so to get that goal early on in the game as well, it was a great achievement". But that's what Kane did in 2017.

He set a record of 39 Premier League goals in a calendar year in the process and has now joined the former Liverpool captain in the history books. Lionel Messi has found the net 16 times in La Liga, and Cristiano Ronaldo has bagged just four league goals.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has claimed star forward Harry Kane will stay with Spurs for the foreseeable future, despite rumors linking the England global with a move to Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth striker Jermaine Defoe won the Carling Premier League December Goal of the Month award.
