Former Liverpool player urges Harry Kane to leave Spurs for trophies

It looks likely that Tottenham’s trophy drought is going to go on for at least another season following the poor start that Mauricio Pochettino’s men have made to the new campaign.

Spurs already find themselves a massive thirteen points Premier League leaders Liverpool after just eight matches while the 7-2 thrashing by Bayern Munich last Tuesday suggests that they have little chance of recreating last season’s terrific run in the Champions League.

To make matters worse, Spurs have already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup by League Two side Colchester United which has left the FA Cup as their only realistic hope for silverware this season.

Former Liverpool full back Glen Johnson has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham in order to win some silverware.

In his column for BetDaq, Johnson wrote: “If Spurs don’t get their act together, players will want to leave, and they’ll have a major rebuilding job on their hands – and that could mean players like Harry Kane move on.

“I listened to Rio Ferdinand say that he thinks Harry should move on for the sake of his career to win trophies, and I agree with him.

“If I was in Harry’s shoes, I would think that I can play elsewhere and have a much better chance of playing with better players and adding trophies to my cabinet.

“In a couple of years his goals could dry up at Spurs and he’d be out the door – there’s no loyalties in football and he has to look after himself first and foremost.”

The former England defender also suggested that Manchester City might be an ideal destination for the England captain as a move to La Liga wouldn’t suit his game.

Johnson added, “I don’t think he’d be suited to the Spanish style of playing, so he might have to wait for Sergio Aguero to move on at City before going there, but it’s not out of the question that could happen in my opinion.

“If I was Harry, I know what I’d do – I’d be moving on for the sake of my career to win as much as I could.”

Spurs Web Opinion

While Tottenham are under no risk of losing Kane at the moment, if our poor form continues and we go another season without winning anything, then perhaps the England captian will be tempted to look elsewhere. If he does end up moving on eventually, I don’t see him moving to another English club. His technique is more than good enough to lead the attack for any side in the world including Real Madrid and Barcelona.
