After Harry Kane was seen waving to the home fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after the game against Brentford this afternoon, Ryan Mason has seemingly insisted the striker was not saying goodbye to the supporters.
It was yet another disappointing outing for Tottenham, who threw away a first-half lead in their final home game of the season.
Harry Kane had given Spurs the lead with a fantastic free-kick, to take his tally for the season to 30 goals, 28 of which have come in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).
The home side collapsed in the second half, with two Bryan Mbuemo goals and a late Yoane Wissa finish securing all three points for visiting Brentford.
After the game, Kane was seen waving to the Spurs fans, and the media have posited this could have been a farewell appearance at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the talismanic striker.
Kane has been heavily linked with a move away from the club this summer. PSG have been mooted as a potential destination (Foot Mercato), while Manchester United are thought to remain a strong contender for his signature (Football Insider).
Speaking to the press after the defeat to Brentford, Mason was asked about Kane’s actions at the end of the game, and insisted people may be jumping to conclusions.
He told Football.London: “He waves at the crowd every season. I saw him waving two years ago and you guys were convinced he was leaving. He was just thanking the fans as he does every season.”
Spurs Web Opinion
We know that Kane is always one of the first to interact with the crowd and I would have been very surprised if he hadn’t waved to the crowd this afternoon.
That said, given the way this season is going, I would not blame Kane if he had made up his mind and wanted to leave Spurs now.
