In an interview with BBC Radio 5-Live, Danny Rose has opened up on the futures of certain Tottenham team-mates ahead of what’s shaping up to be an eventful Summer transfer window.
Danny Rose immediately suggested that Kane wants to stay on at Spurs for the foreseeable future to emulate the goal-scoring heroics of Premier League all time top scorer, Alan Shearer. He said:
“I think the club can only do so much. I think a lot of it has got to be down to the individual.”
“I don’t want to speak on behalf of anyone but working with someone like Harry Kane, I can tell you that his mindset will be, ‘now I’m staying at Tottenham, I’m going to break every single record.'”
‘”I’m going to set new records, I’m going to get as close to Alan Shearer as possible, I’m going to captain this club into the new stadium.'”
Harry Kane has won the Golden Boot for the second time straight this season, as well as picking up the PFA Fans’ Player of the Year Award after scoring an impressive 35 goals in 38 appearances in all competitions.
“So when you have got a player like him with that mindset,” Rose added. “I don’t think Tottenham have to worry in that respect but I think it just depends where the individual is in the stage of his career.”
Rose then talked about players who may feel as though they have achieved all they can realistically achieve at Tottenham and players who may fancy a new challenge. The future of Spurs full-back Kyle Walker has been a hot topic in recent weeks, amidst strong interest from Manchester City. Rose said:
“A player might feel that he has done enough at Tottenham, he might fancy a change or you might feel that Tottenham is now the nearly club where we nearly go close to winning the league, we nearly go close to winning the semi-final of the FA Cup and he might chose to move on.”
“So I think the club can only do so much and try and make a player see that the club is going in the right direction and if you stick with us, it won’t be long before we are winning something.”
Of course, Rose mentioned no names, but these comments certainly fuel speculation. What do you think? Is he hinting at a Kyle Walker exit, or are his comments merely misconstrued?
