Glenn Hoddle thinks Nuno will have 1-on-1 chat with Tottenham star this week
Glenn Hoddle has told Premier League Productions that Nuno could have a 1-on-1 chat with Tottenham star Harry Kane, after Sunday’s NLD loss.
Spurs suffered 3-1 defeat in the first NLD of the season, with Arsenal leading 3-0 at half-time. Son Heung-min got a late consolation for Spurs.
Following the match, plenty of Tottenham players have been criticised for a lack of desire – and body language. Jermaine Jenas labelled five as “poor”.
Within those five, Jenas pointed out England skipper Kane as poor. Hoddle went into more detail, stating he himself must break this rut he is in.
Still seeming as though he has been affected by his failed Manchester City move, Kane was miles off his normal standard during the loss to Arsenal.
During his analysis after the match, Spurs legend Hoddle said Nuno and Kane could have a chat – but thinks Kane must improve his form himself.
“Harry Kane is just not at it. He’s got to get himself back on it. He’s got to get his energy and enthusiasm back,” Hoddle said on Sunday evening.
“He’s staying, the move didn’t happen, get on with it. He looks like he is smoldering a little bit. Nuno isn’t going to bring that out of him.
“He [Nuno} might sit him down and have a 1-on-1 chat with him – but the lad has got to look at himself in the mirror.”
Hoddle on Kane: Could Nuno do the unthinkable – drop Tottenham star?
Well, something needs to change. Gary Neville made the point that Kane is contributing, but he is miles off his normal self. Sunday was no different.
Yes, Kane is likely to be down after his move and it is as though he has lost all care for Spurs. His body language is atrocious, his form is poor.
Hoddle is right. Kane is the only person that can turn this around and perhaps, a shock to the system is needed. Right now, he is not good enough.
He is way off the standard of Manchester City, and behind the level of Spurs. Being dropped might just jolt Kane into gear. A bold move, though.
