Jamie O’Hara has claimed that Harry Kane looked like a player who did not want to be at Tottenham after the striker struggled in the 3-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.
Kane was immediately restored into the starting lineup by Nuno Espirito Santo when it became clear the striker would be staying put at Tottenham beyond the summer.
However, the England captain has struggled to have an impact on matches so far this campaign, having not found the back of the net in the Premier League yet.
Nuno Espirito Santo pulled a surprise by deploying Kane off the left against Chelsea, with Son Heung-min leading the line.
While the 28-year-old was involved in some neat build-up play in the first half as Tottenham dominated the game, the striker was completely invisible after the interval as Chelsea took over proceedings and dispatched the home side with ease.
Kane has come in for some stinging criticism, with Roy Keane blasting his display and his body language.
O’Hara has now remarked that the striker looked like a player who does not want to be at the club.
This is what the former Spurs midfielder tweeted after seeing the Lilywhites fall to a 3-0 defeat in yesterday’s London derby: ‘I’m gonna find it hard not to hammer a few players, desire to put your body on the line to keep the ball out the net just isn’t there, waiting to get beat, and Harry Kane looks like he don’t want to be there.’
I’ll be on @talkSPORT in the morning and I’m gonna find it hard not to hammer a few players, desire to put your body on the line to keep the ball out the net just isn’t there, waiting to get beat, and Harry Kane looks like he don’t want to be there 🤷🏼♂️ #spurs #TOTCHE

After the events surrounding Kane this summer, he was always going to come under the microscope at the start of the season. So, it does not surprise me that pundits are now questioning his attitude and desire.
I personally do not think that Kane’s poor performances have anything to do with his lack of desire. I beleive he simply has not managed to cope with the added pressure that has come with trying to force himself out of the club.
