Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has told talkSPORT he believes Harry Kane will be having doubts over his future at the club after the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United in the FA Cup.
Tottenham Hotspur travelled to Championship promotion chasers Sheffield United last night in the fifth round of the FA Cup, looking to book their place in the quarter-finals of the competition.
The tournament was deemed the Lilywhites’ last realistic hope of winning a trophy this year.
A tight game was won by the home side when Iliman Ndiaye scored a fine goal after 79 minutes, dumping Spurs out of the cup.
It was a frustrating performance from Tottenham, with very few good chances carved out and defensive frailties emerging once again.
The result will have been particularly disappointing for Kane, who watched from the bench before joining the action in the 65th minute.
Many have urged the player to move on in order to finally win a trophy (Daily Mail).
Now, with another opportunity wasted, Redknapp claims Kane may be thinking long and hard about whether he wants to remain at Spurs or move on.
He said: “I looked at his face last night as he walked off the pitch and he looked very low.
“He must have thought, ‘my god, what’s going on here?’ He’s on the bench, he doesn’t start the game. You’re taking a gamble.”
Redknapp believes Spurs have missed a good opportunity for a trophy, adding: “They should have gone for it last night and Harry should be starting the game surely?
“I fancied Spurs to win the cup this year. I looked at it and thought this could be their year.”
Spurs Web Opinion
This really was a fantastic chance for us to finally win a trophy and it just felt like no one, from the staff to the players, took it seriously at all.
It was frustrating for us to watch as fans, and I assume, very frustrating for Kane to see another opportunity slip through his fingers. I honestly wouldn’t blame him if he chose to leave.
