Harry Kane has argued that the Europa Conference League would be better than nothing for Tottenham next season as he enjoys playing as many football matches as possible. 

Spurs are currently in a battle for European football next season, although it isn’t the battle they would have envisioned for themselves come the turn of the year.

After falling away from the top four race with the likes of Man United and Newcastle, Spurs now find themselves struggling to even secure Europa League football for the 2023/24 campaign.

With Liverpool overtaking the Lilywhites this month and Brighton having numerous games in hand, it seems that Spurs may be in a head-to-head battle with Aston Villa for a seventh-place finish.

It seems that Kane would rather enter the Europa Conference League and attempt to win it than miss out on Europe altogether.

He said (Independent): “We’ve got three games left, a big game against Villa next week away.

“Obviously, Brighton have a few games in hand on us. If we can come away from this season with European football, that’s a small prize at the end of a tough season.

“We’ll be fighting for that and fighting in the three games to try to pick up three wins.

“Ultimately I think I like to play football games no matter what competition it is.

“That’s what you deserve from where you finish in the season.

“You can’t disrespect any competition that you play in. It’s one of those, if you end up in the Conference League and win it, it’s worth it. If you don’t, then people probably look at it as an inconvenience.

“But when you’ve been at a club where we haven’t won a trophy for 15 years, if we do end up in it, it could be an opportunity to try and put that to bed.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

As most Tottenham fans will, I am absolutely reading into Harry Kane’s language here. It sounds as though he is expecting to be competing in a Spurs shirt next season. Although, even if that is the case, it does not mean he is planning on signing a new contract.
