Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, believes that Harry Kane has hinted he will stay at Spurs for at least another season during his recent Instagram live interview with Sky Sports’ Jamie Redknapp.

This came as the Tottenham centre-forward made a revelation in the interview about Jose Mourinho being excited to instil his own values on the North London side.

Wright insisted that this comment indicated that the striker was planning to stay at the club beyond the summer to give the Special One a chance to make a difference.

However, the Arsenal legend added that Kane might leave after next season if the team isn’t improving under the Portuguese coach.

So far in his Spurs career, Kane has scored an incredible 181 goals in 278 games, however, he still has no trophies to show for such a record (Wikipedia).

While his three golden boots, MBE, and endless scoring records represent personal success, the best Kane has to show for his club career is a Champions League runners-up medal.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, Wright said: “Now they have a manager who is a notorious winner of trophies. Kane did say ‘next year will be the first chance the gaffer will have to bed his values into the team’.

“That says to me he is somebody who is already thinking of next year, so he’s not going anywhere.

“I’d give this manager a chance with his pre-season, do next season and see where it goes. Because from when he made his debut up to now, I think he has given them everything he can.

“If nothing happens and Harry Kane decides to leave then you have to say ‘well, he’s under Mourinho, nothing has changed’. He wants to win medals.

“You can’t have that kind of ability, that kind of goalscorer who is able to win matches, and not win anything. You can’t.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

I agree with Wright here. It does sound as if Kane will give Mourinho a real chance to put his mark on the Tottenham team. However, if Spurs fail to progress in the next 12 months, showing ambition on the pitch and in the transfer market, then the Lilywhites may find it hard to keep Harry.
