Harry Kane reveals what he wants to discuss with Levy for future at Spurs

Harry Kane has been speaking about the future of Tottenham Hotspur this week in an interview with Sky Sports, stating that the culture around the club and training ground needs to change. 

The Spurs striker, who is currently the acting captain with Hugo Lloris out injured, argued that Tottenham need to get back to where they were when Mauricio Pochettino was at the club.

During the Argentine’s five-and-a-half-year spell in North London, Spurs made a cup final, got to the Champions League final, consistently achieved top-four finishes, and were even in a couple of Premier League title races.

Fast forward four years and Spurs have been through the likes of Jose Mourinho, Nuno Espirito Santo, Antonio Conte, Cristian Stellini, and a couple of spells under Ryan Mason.

Football Insider have reported that Tottenham are consulting with their striker about the current manager search in an effort to convince him to stay, but he will not sign a new contract until a head coach is in place.

When asked about the culture around Spurs at the moment, Kane told SkySports (as relayed by Football London): “I think on the pitch you know I always give 100%.

“I always give my all for the team and for the club. I think off the pitch to have those conversations with the chairman and the staff here and try to give my opinion on some of the things that I think can help us just be more consistent and more successful in the culture that we try to set.

“I feel like from a culture point of view we’ve been too up and down over the last few years so in any great team, any winning team, you know they have a way of doing things and whoever comes in, or is added to that, they kind of fit in straight away and know the standards.

“Ours have been a little bit loose I feel like, and we need to find a way to create that environment that drives success.”

Kane added: “It’s been a difficult season. Probably the last couple of years, the last two or three, we haven’t been where we want to be as a club, so ultimately, there’s some internal stuff we need to talk about.

“We need to discuss some of the standards around the team and the training ground, which we need to get back to. We had [standards] those in place when Mauricio Pochettino was here, so internally we need to do that.

“The chairman [Daniel Levy] will make a decision on what he thinks is best for the club, in terms of the coach and who he wants to bring in, the players to go and who he wants to bring in.

“I always think you’re never too far away from being competitive with the right people, but also, you’re never too far away from dropping down to 10th or 11th place in the Premier League because that is the standard.

“It’s an important moment for the club, to feel a connection again with the fans, who I know have been frustrated with these moments. We need to try to build that relationship back up and try to push all in the same direction.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

You don’t have to read too far between the lines to judge that Kane has not got his mind 100% set on a Tottenham exit this summer. It could be that he expects to stay one more season and then leave on a free. Or it could hint that he is open to a long-term stay if he can have a greater influence on fostering a winning culture around the place.
