Dimitar Berbatov has suggested that Harry Kane will be asking himself whether he should remain a Tottenham Hotspur player.
The North London club have fallen way below expectations this season after having only won three of their opening matches in the Premier League and are still in search of their first victory in the Champions League.
Berbatov decided to swap Tottenham for Manchester United in 2008 and forced through the transfer with Daniel Levy admitting that he had no choice but to sell him (Telegraph).
The Bulgarian went on to win the Premier League title on two occasions with the Old Trafford outfit after only managing to win a League Cup with Spurs, which is still the last piece of competitive silverware the club have won.
Berbatov believes that Kane will be questioning his future at the club where he came through the ranks as an academy player.
With Spurs having failed to win a match away from home since January and have suffered back-to-back disappointing defeats to Bayern Munich and Brighton, Kane’s career could be at a crossroads in the eyes of the 38-year-old who announced his retirement last month (The Mirror).
Berbatov told Betfair: “Harry is scoring goals, but Spurs aren’t performing well. That’s a tough situation and I’ve been there before myself.
“Now he’s on an international break, what happens if he doesn’t get the results he wants with England? He won’t feel good about that.
“I think he will be fine, but I do question if he is out of his comfort zone. Is he asking the right questions of himself?
“Yes, he’s starting for the team, he’s playing regularly and still scoring goals. But is that enough? Is he going to grow and develop constantly if he wants to be among the very best of the very best.
“So, for me, he has questions to answer.
“You can see, after every defeat, how unhappy he is with the result and any chances he may have missed.
“But that shows passion and how much he cares about Spurs.”
He added: “I am sure that Harry Kane is asking questions and challenging himself privately – with his coach, with his agent and with his team-mates.
“They will all be talking with each other to try and get out of the situation that they are in at Spurs.
“In the end, it’s up to him to decide what to do about his future.”
