Harry Kane said his hat-trick from the bench in Tottenham’s 5-1 Europa Conference League win over NS Mura came as a bonus.
The England captain struck the 13th treble of his Spurs career after coming on just before the hour-mark against the Slovenian outfit.
The hosts were winning 2-1 at the time after goals inside the first eight minutes from Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso and Kane’s cameo settled matters.
“All the squad today was important for players that didn’t have too many chances, they played 90 minutes. For the future it is important to prepare what is in front of us so all the squad is needed.
“I back all the players, all the players have my total support. All of them.
“We have to support them and help them find the level that I believe they have, which is talent, quality. If we have all the players in the best we can have a good squad and team.”
