Spurs' 118-year stay at the Lane is now over as they'll temporarily move to Wembley for next season before returning to the new 61,559 capacity stadium right next to their old home in time for the 2018-19 season.
"What a way to finish".
Moreover, it was their last game at White Hart Lane, and what better way to pay homage to their spiritual home than beating the Red Devils in their last appearance there. I said before I'd love to score the winning goal and for it to happen is brilliant.
He added: "We've just got to next season go out and try and win some trophies, and go into the new season as proper title contenders and players who can win trophies".
But, Tottenham were not to be denied and they won out to complete a remarkable home season in 2016/2017, where they went unbeaten at White Hart Lane.
Considering how poorly Mauricio Pochettino and his players did there during this season's Champions League campaign, a lot needs to be addressed if they are to repeat this year's heroics in England's biggest stadium, something which Hugo Lloris is very aware of. "I am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious".
Pochettino believes that finishing second and the new stadium coming will give them the platform to push on even further. he said: "We believe that when the new stadium opens it's doors it will help the cub to achieve the last level".
"I am not upset because we had to make that decision", he said about missing out on the top four. That's progression from last season and we have to keep it going now.
Many gaps were visible in the rows stands after supporters ripped out the chairs to take home as souvenirs whilst thousands more could be seen strewn on the outskirts of the pitch after being removed by workers.
Kane, though, claimed Spurs would not suffer like West Ham have at their new ground, the Olympic Stadium, where they have dropped 32 points this season compared to the north Londoners' four.
"We've got to use this as motivation to get there". The Argentine manager was pleased with his side's performance, and the win clinched second place in the Premier League table behind champions Chelsea.
