Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has insisted that he remains fully committed to the club.
The forward admitted in an Instagram live interview with Jamie Redknapp back in March that he could leave North London if the club fail to meet his ambitions and do not improve (Daily Mail).
After witnessing Lionel Messi having looked to have pushed through an exit from Barcelona before performing a u-turn (BBC), Kane has stated that he is looking forward to his first full season under the management of Jose Mourinho.
The England captain believes that Mourinho can help him reach the next level of his career and also have Spurs in a position where they can compete for the Premier League title and cup competitions.
Tottenham have failed to win a competitive trophy since beating Chelsea in the League Cup final back in 2008 and have come up short in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in recent seasons.
Kane told The Express before news of Messi’s change in decision emerged: “Messi’s situation is different to mine,”
“He is 33 years old and he has been there a long, long time and won a lot with the club and been very successful.
“I don’t know him and have never spoken to him so I don’t know what his situation is but I am focused on myself.
“Hopefully as a team we can fight for the Premier League and the cup competitions.
“Of course the manager can help with his stature and how good he is but it is about me personally and where the team goes. I think it is more than just a manager who can do that.”
