Paul Merson has claimed that Harry Kane must re-consider his future at Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The Sky Sports pundit believes that if he wants to win trophies in his career he must think about leaving his boyhood club.
Tottenham’s last major honour came eleven years ago when Juande Ramos’ side beat Chelsea in the League Cup final at Wembley.
While Kane has won personal accolades including the Premier League golden boot and the 2018 World Cup golden boot, he is yet to taste success for his club side.
Merson suggested that the only reason that footballers play the game is to win trophies and Kane must now weight up spending his career in North London or put his own priorities first.
He told Sky Sports: “It’s very strange what’s going on at Tottenham because you think they are going to start afresh against Watford at the weekend, leave their troubles behind and get on a roll. However, they go behind early, which you think is not a problem, but they can’t go on to win the game. And how fortunate they are with their goal is bordering on a joke.
The former Arsenal player’s comments almost echo what Rio Ferdinand said on a recent appearance on BT Sport when he claimed he would leave Spurs for personal gain if he was in the striker’s shoes.
