Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane, has quickly become one of the very best in the world in his position, but he has still yet to win a competitive trophy.
Kane has suffered the runners-up position with Spurs on a couple of occasions, most notably in the Champions League final last season. Harry also reached two semi-finals in as many years with England, without being able to take the final step.
Kane has scored 174 goals in just 266 games for Tottenham, most recently away to Liverpool after he netted with just 47 seconds on the clock. Harry has also managed 28 goals in 43 appearances for England, a team he now captains (Wikipedia).
Now 26-years-old and reaching the stereotypical peak of his career, ex-player Robbie Savage has now claimed that Kane will not win anything in North London.
Savage, who boasts such career honours as FA Youth Cup winner with Man United and League Cup winner with Leicester City, has implied that it may be time for Kane to move on.
He said (BBC Radio 5 Live on 606): “When comes the point for Kane to say ‘do you know what it’s time to move on’. With this Spurs team, he’s not going to win anything. I know that they got to a Champions League final.
“Was it Roy Keane that said on TV that if I was Manchester United, I would just go and buy Harry Kane? You might say what are they going to win in the future. Not winning trophies for Manchester United, and playing for them, is far bigger than winning no trophies for Tottenham.
“What’s going to keep Kane? They’re not going to win anything this season. They are mid-table. They might get into the top-four. But is that good enough for Harry Kane? When you speak to the likes of Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs & Gary Neville. All the players who have won trophies, all the Man City players, the celebrations for the top players is to win trophies.
“Harry Kane is going to be a multi-millionaire wherever he goes. So surely when Kane looks back and says ‘you know what, I’m a multi-millionaire, but I didn’t win anything’ – Kane is a class act. Very, very good player. But staying at Spurs he must be getting frustrated because they’re not going to win anything, so surely you are going to have to move.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Robbie Savage should stick to what he knows, and that is not talking about winning big trophies. Why does everyone assume that Kane would rather win trophies and leave Spurs than stay loyal? Why does everyone assume that Spurs will never win anything? Let the man choose his own future and leave him alone.
