“It’s not only about Harry” – Spurs star hits back at claims club must meet Kane’s ambitions

Hugo Lloris has played down speculation regarding Harry Kane’s future as Spurs continue to fight for a Champions League spot for next season (Football.London).

Over the course of the lockdown period, Kane admitted he would not rule out a move away from North London in the future if the club failed to match his ambitions (Evening Standard).

However, the Spurs skipper has insisted ‘it’s not fair’ to single Kane out as the player which the club needs to meet the ambitions of.

The World Cup-winning captain commented on Tottenham’s current position in what is an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League for a fifth successive season.

“It’s not only about Harry. We all want to play in the greatest competition like the Champions League but you get what you deserve,” Lloris told Football.London.

“We are talking about the club, we cannot talk just about only one player because we are all involved and if the club doesn’t achieve the ambition then we are all guilty.

“It’s not fair to say one or the other deserves better. We are all working for the club, giving our best and of course, the top four will be very, very difficult.”

Spurs still sit four points behind Manchester United in fifth place which is could be enough to claim a Champions League spot due to Manchester City’s presumed UEFA ban.

Seven games remain for Spurs and Lloris has insisted the squad have not given up on Champions League qualification.

“We are looking to doing our best, finishing as high as we can, we don’t know what’s possible but at least getting a run of wins then we’ll see where we will be at the end of the season.”

Spurs Web Opinion

I don’t think any Spurs fans would blame Kane for leaving if we fail to win anything over the next couple of years. It will be interesting to see where next season will take us if we fail to qualify for Champions League football.
