Harry Kane slams Spurs flops – warning ‘we have no excuses’ for dreadful start – The Sun

HARRY KANE slammed Spurs’ woeful start to the season and admitted: We’ve no excuses left.

Tottenham were humiliated by League Two minnows Colchester in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup shootout exit.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won just two games this season and Kane confessed: “It’s been disappointing. I don’t think there’s any hiding behind that.

“To only win two games out of our first eight is not the standard that we’ve set in previous years.

“We’re not inexperienced any more, we’re not young any more. The excuses aren’t there for us any more — it’s down to us players to take responsibility.”

The shock cup defeat has ramped up the pressure on Spurs, who last won a trophy in 2008.

And with a Premier League clash with Southampton looming on Saturday, Kane told Sky Sports: “Game management is something we need to get better at.

“When we go ahead in games we need to be more confident, to see the game out — whether we drop behind the ball or carry on playing, whatever suits that game.

“It’s not the ideal start. If this was January or February people would be saying there’s no chance of us winning it — but you can never rule yourselves out until it’s done.

“There are plenty of games to turn that around.”

Team-mate Ben Davies added: “We just have to apologise to the fans.

"We let them down, we let the club down. We must show we’re better than this.”
