Kane Would Be Surprised if Spurs Stars Left

Tottenham talisman Harry Kane, who scored the winning goal against United in the last ever game at White Hart Lane, has made the claim that he doesn’t foresee anyone leaving Spurs this Summer.

Tottenham secured a second place finish in the league with their 2-1 win on Sunday and currently sit on 80 points, 7 ahead of Liverpool in third. Unbeaten at home in the league for the first time since 1965 and hungry for trophies, Kane labelled the Tottenham team as ‘special’ and brimming with a bright future. He said:

“We’ve got a very bright future, a great squad, a team that’s hungry to win and to learn and to get better.”

“We work so hard as a group and the staff, the manager and, look, there are not many better teams to be at around the world at the moment.”

In spite of all the positivity surrounding the club, Summer speculation has linked certain Spurs stars with moves away from North London. Kane, however, was quick to dismiss these rumours.

“Of course there’s going to be rumours over the summer, but I think I’d be very surprised if most of us aren’t still here next season.”

“It’s a special bond and I don’t think you always get that at clubs, that’s why we’ve got to hold onto that, make that motivate us to hopefully be out there next year at Wembley lifting a Premier League together.”

“We finished obviously third last season, second this year – we’ve got to try and take that next step and try and finish first.”

Last year, Kane committed his future to the club, signing a 5 year deal until 2022.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Well somethings up with Kyle because he’s been benched a lot despite still having the edge over Trips, especially defensively. Maybe he hates Wembley (as do I).

  2. Is Danny Rose annoyed because Ben Davies has been playing so well in his place on the left wing? It’s a bloody good job there was a fit and focused Davies available when Rose got injured almost four months ago, otherwise Spurs would have been stymied from 31 January.

    Ditto on the right-wing where Kyle Walker plays well and so too does Trippier thanks to KT’s involvement in every FA Cup round played and stints in the other domestic and international competitions. I didn’t think that Walker had been dropped for the FA Cup semi-final, given Trippier’s previous involvement, but noticed in the league match that followed, the away match at Crystal Palace, some of Walker’s passing was perverse and like that of a man distracted, “having had his head turned” perhaps. The old Kyle Walker had returned, the one whose decision-making had led to important goals conceded in a couple of previous seasons. Walker played unconvincingly against West Ham, but so too did most other Spurs players that night. What pundit-speculation there has been has swirled around the much-improved Walker who has benefited by the Pochettino regime at Spurs. What irony! A player who has been prepared to plough on despite some some uninspiring managerial predecessors, finds himself with the coming man at the coming place and yet seems drawn to a place where defensive solidity has not been a priority and doesn’t look like being.
