Former Arsenal forward Ian Wright feels Harry Kane may regret not winning trophies in his career, but believes that will only drive him further to deliver.
The 28-year-old has come close to breaking his duck on a handful of occasions both with Tottenham and England, but has never managed to lift his first piece of silverware.
Kane played his part in England’s road to the Euro 2020 final, which culminated in a heartbreaking defeat on penalties to Italy, while Spurs narrowly lost last season’s Carabao Cup final to Manchester City.
The star forward reportedly wanted to leave Spurs for City this summer after making his feelings known to the club’s chiefs about wanting to taste success, but a move failed to materialise, meaning he will remain in North London for the time being.
The England captain enjoyed one of the most fruitful campaigns across the board for club and country last season, and ex-Arsenal man Wright claims a lack of silverware on Kane’s CV would prove to be a disappointment for a player of his calibre.
On ITV ahead of England’s World Cup qualifier against Poland, Wright said: “What’s going to happen with Kane, he’s decided to stay at Spurs.
“There’s no question, he’s a world-class player and at some stage, he will be thinking he wants to win things, otherwise he wouldn’t have wanted to go to Man City.
“Maybe he doesn’t feel like it can happen at Tottenham but at City he felt like that was going to give him that last realisation.
“I believe he is a world-class striker but people will question that he hasn’t won enough. He’s probably going to break the England scoring record.
“That’ll be the one thing he will regret, if he doesn’t win anything, that’s what will drive him.”
“I believe he’s a world-class striker, but people will question that and say ‘you haven’t won enough for a player who’s scored the amount of goals you have.'"@IanWright0 believes Harry Kane is world class – do you? 🤔

Wright would be correct in saying it would be a big disappointment if Kane looked back on his career with regret if he didn’t win anything at club level to represent it. A player of his quality deserves to win trophies, and Spurs need to put an end to a drought that shouldn’t be happening.
