There is no getting away from the fact that there are the makings of a full-blown crisis at Tottenham at the moment.

As expected, the usual suspects in the media have already started actively endorsing many of Tottenham’s top players to Europe’s biggest clubs.

Rio Ferdinand told BT Sport recently that Harry Kane has to leave Tottenham if he is ambitious enough to win trophies. Former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder Danny Murphy has now refuted Ferdinand and suggested that Kane would not like to leave the club with a bitter taste in his mouth.

He insisted that the England captain will repay the faith that the club have showed in him and help them turn their fortunes around.

In his column in the Daily Mail, Murphy wrote, “Rio Ferdinand has said Harry Kane could leave to win trophies.

“I personally think Harry is the type of lad who would prefer to go out on a high rather than jump ship when things are tough, as they are now.

“Harry will want to repay the club’s faith and turns things around.”

In the article, Murphy also asserted that the club’s biggest problem was that too many players had been there for too long and also insisted that Pochettino has to adopt a 4-3-3 and abandon the diamond.

Spurs Web Opinion

If Ferdinand feels the need to publicly question Harry Kane’s ambition if he stays at Spurs despite the lack of silverware, then one wonders why he doesn’t feel the need to do the same about the likes of Paul Pogba and David de Gea. Leaving that aside, I do believe Kane is not the type of player to demand a move and will help us turn our form around. Whether he stays with the club till his thirties or ends up leaving in a couple of years, he will still go down as a Spurs legend in my book.
