One year ago today, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane spoke to ESPN. The England captain was discussing several topics, including Tottenham’s increasing links to the NFL.
However, Kane also spoke about his future at Tottenham. He made it clear that he has no desire to leave Tottenham, unless the club start going backward.
He also spoke about his relationship with Mauricio Pochettino, with the comments undoubtedly worrying for any Tottenham fans wondering if Kane might be considering his long-term future at the club.
“I’ve always said as long as the club is moving in the right direction and showing the right ambition, I want to be part of the journey.
“The journey at Spurs really started for me and him at the same time. We both want the same things.
“We both want to push and push and push, and work and work. “We’ll just have to see what happens this season, and go from there.”
Tottenham have certainly gone backward this season. The club has lacked ambition in the transfer market and it has seen them struggle to keep pace not only with the leading pack of Liverpool and Manchester City but even be overtaken by usual mid-table battlers Leicester City and Wolves.
That does not sound the ambition that Kane would have demanded.
On top of that, Pochettino is gone. Serial winner Jose Mourinho has arrived, but the Portuguese has struggled to enact a significant change at Tottenham since he replaced the Argentine.
Earlier this month, as reported by The Telegraph, it was suggested that Kane would consider his future at Tottenham at the end of the season. The report claims a potential £150 million asking price for the player who will undoubtedly have his eye on winning silverware elsewhere.
His comments from a year ago make it no secret that a transfer away from Tottenham could be possible when the current campaign ends.
