West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady isn’t someone who is known to be complementary towards Tottenham, considering the hammers consider the Lillywhites to be their main local rivals at the moment.
As regular readers of Brady’s column in the Sun will tell you she is extremely opinionated and at times fairly provocative. However, in this week’s column, the Hammers vice-chairman has an optimistic prediction about the future of Spurs striker Harry Kane.
Kane has hit the ground running after returning from the ankle injury he picked up in January, scoring 4 goals in 5 games since his return. It looks like the England captain is on course for yet another prolific season and is likely to push the likes of Aguero till the end in the race for the golden boot.
Brady has now said that her “instincts” tell her that the 25-year-old will stay with Tottenham till the end. Brady said that the fact that Kane is a local lad means that he dreams of being “the King of the Lane”.
She wrote, “My instincts tell me Harry Kane will remain a one-club man. It’s because Kane regards Spurs as family and this love is returned many-fold in North London.
“There has been talk of the striker leaving for a giant club should Spurs continue to be trophy near-misses but several points are being missed.
“For a man brought up 15 minutes from White Hart Lane, being the King of the Lane is dreamland. Signing a six-year contract last year suggests he is highly compatible with manager Mauricio Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy.
“And while a £200,000-a-week salary is less than half of the amount, say, Alexis Sanchez earns at Old Trafford, it should be enough to keep his babies in romper suits.”
