There is an inevitability these days that when Harry Kane goes on a run,like he is on right now, questions are asked about him “outgrowing ” and being “too good” for little old Tottenham Hotspur.
Questions I think, are not just disrespectful for the club,but for the player as well.
However,as Andy Dunne from The Daily Mirror writes ,maybe just maybe Kane isn’t chasing the green like a lot of his contemporaries and actually doesn’t want to play for anyone expect Tottenham Hotspur. Ever!!
Dunnes alternative view brings up the possibility that maybe Kane considers one hundred grand a week enough for himself and his family to live on and that in fact a bigger salary elsewhere isn’t on his list of priorities.
In regards to joining a “bigger club” Dunne asks that maybe Kane has no interest in joining some monstrous, commercial behemoth who collect and discard players with impudent rich abandon.
The article goes on to say that Kane could well value the pursuit of achievement with Spurs rather than than that of a club that throws cash like it was going out of fashion at the mere hope of possibly, but not guaranteeing, gaining instant success. He also says that perhaps Kane is a dreamer. Maybe he dreams that one of his goals will help a club he clearly loves win their first league title since 1961.
What if he envisages himself as one of Tottenham’s “own” cradling the Ballon D’Or? asks Dunne. Is he the natural successor to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo? Time will tell.How can Spurs hold on to him? Maybe, just maybe, he wants to hold on to Spurs.
A very interesting take on Harry’s situation that is for sure. I’d actually agree with Dunne’s sentiments that maybe Harry Kane is actually living the dream at Spurs and is at a point in life where he is happy and content and everything else is a bonus. We’d all love to see Spurs dine at the top table more regularly. The Champions League is a tough competition but as we saw with Liverpool in Istanbul in 2005, it is not impossible for a less fancied club to win it. And maybe Kane sees that and that is his goal. The ultimate dream to see your team win the big prizes and be part of that. To Dare is to Do and maybe Harry wants to dare and do with Tottenham an no one else.
What do you guys think. Will Harry follow in the footsteps of Matt Le Tissier or Stevie G and be a one club man of will he eventually succumb to the cold hard cash that’s ine
