Jamie Carragher makes Harry Kane claim with striker set for Spurs stay
Jamie Carragher has told The Telegraph that Harry Kane will have been hurt by what Spurs fans sang about him during their win over Manchester City on the opening day of this season – as he implored the striker to stay put for the rest of his career.
After much speculation, Kane will remain a Tottenham player this season. The striker confirmed on social media on Wednesday that he will not be leaving.
It comes after two very interesting moments involving the supporters in the club’s first two league games of the season.
Kane alluded to the amazing reception he received when Spurs faced Wolves at the weekend.
But there was also the remarkable moment during the win over City when the fans started chanting: ‘Are you watching, Harry Kane?’
And Carragher has suggested that that moment had an important role to play with Kane now set to stick around.
“The fans’ response felt like a critical moment,” he told The Telegraph. “Kane would have imagined leaving north London with a handshake and understanding given his service to the club, Spurs consoled by how much they received for him. Sensing the mood turn against him will have deeply hurt and worried him.
“He knew there was no way of leaving on good terms, and no way of guaranteeing an invitation to any post-career reunions. That is not going to have changed by next January, or next summer.”

Whatever happens from here, there is surely still plenty to be said regarding Kane and Manchester City.
City are not going to be loosening their grip on being a European powerhouse anytime soon. And Kane has some time left at his peak.
So it will be interesting to see how events play out when speculation inevitably starts up again in the future.
Carragher suggests in his piece that Kane should finish his career with Tottenham.
That has certainly become a little more likely with the striker failing to seal a move in this window.
