‘We still haven’t won a trophy’- Jamie O’Hara responds to Michael Owen’s Harry Kane claim

Jamie O’Hara has warned Tottenham that Harry Kane could end up leaving the club in a year or two if Spurs have now won any silverware by that time.

The Tottenham striker regularly gets linked with a move away from the club and last summer was no different  (Daily Mail).

However, Kane ended up staying put at Spurs and has continued to break records at the club, including becoming Spurs’ most capped England player last week.

Michael Owen suggested last week that the 27-year-old is likely to stay put at Tottenham for the rest of his career after claiming that no club in Europe would likely to be willing to pay £100mllion for the England captain due to his age.

The former Liverpool and Manchester United striker suggested that clubs would rather spend that kind of money on younger players who have close to a decade left in their careers at the top level.

O’Hara does not believe that to be the case as he claims Kane could still be tempted to leave if Spurs do not win silverware.

The Billericay Town boss told talkSPORT: “I think we have to win something. We need to win a title, FA Cup or trophy to keep him at the football club.

“If it goes another couple of seasons and we still haven’t won a trophy I think then he’s going to go ‘I need to move on if I’m going to win something’.

“I don’t disagree with Michael Owen saying that a lot of teams will want to pay the money for young lads but it’s hardly desperation getting a signing like Harry Kane at 29. He’s still going to have a lot to offer.

“Spurs need to really push, back the manager and back what they are trying to do and win something to keep players like Harry Kane at the football club.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The real question is, why should we be listening to a half baked ex-footballer, who now manages in the low leagues and is not even doing that well there. He is a terrible pundit who loves the sound of his own voice, with an appetite for the cliche’s with literally nothing to say that hasn’t already been said elsewhere! O’hara you are a joke!
