Pierluigi Gollini responds when asked what Tottenham players thought of Harry Kane confirming he will stay
Pierluigi Gollini has responded when asked what the Tottenham Hotspur squad thought, after hearing Harry Kane will remain at the club.
Kane, 28, has shocked many on Wednesday afternoon after posting a statement in which he says he will be remaining at Spurs this summer.
The striker has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City – but numerous reports indicate that City have not met the £150million price tag.
Kane missed the opening two matches against Manchester City and Pacos de Ferreira – but came on against Wolves during Sunday’s 1-0 win.
“Obviously, we are very happy,” Gollini said. “It’s normal. We know how good Harry is as a player. How important he is for this club, this team.
“For me, he is definitely one of the best strikers in the world. It is very, very big and important news for the club. We are very happy.”
What does Kane staying at Tottenham mean for Bergwijn?
Nuno Espirito Santo has fielded a side that has been defensively solid, but break quickly and look a very attacking team on the counter attack.
Steven Bergwijn has been pivotal to that – alongside Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura. But of course, with Kane available, he starts for Spurs.
Son starts with him and so does Lucas, given the Brazilian’s form last season and early this term. So, the player to drop out of the starting XI is Bergwijn.
Harsh on the Netherlands international, who has been stunning throughout the first two games for Spurs. He almost scored against Manchester City.
Bergwijn has been linked with a return to his home country and to Ajax in recent weeks. He might be tempted with a move, as Kane confirms his stay.
