'Sad': Gary Lineker shares thoughts on what Daniel Levy told 61-cap Spurs man, amid reports
Gary Lineker has taken to Twitter to share his thoughts on the supposed gentleman’s agreement between Harry Kane and Daniel Levy.
What’s the story?
As documented by the Evening Standard, Kane believed his gentleman’s agreement with Levy would help him move away from Spurs.
However, if there was such an arrangement with the 61-cap England international, the Tottenham Chairman failed to live up to his word.
As Pep Guardiola stated, Levy simply wouldn’t negotiate with Manchester City, and Kane announced he’d be staying in N17 a few days ago.
The Sun even claimed that Levy is thinking of offering Kane an extra £100,000-a-week in a bid to keep him until 2027.
As seen on his Twitter account, Lineker expressed his disappointment at Levy’s U-turn, if this gentleman’s agreement was real, that is.
What did Gary Lineker say about Tottenham’s Kane situation?
In a conversation with ex-Spurs player Graham Roberts and Henry Winter of The Times, Lineker shared some honest thoughts.
Different point, but yes it’s a sad reflection of the times that you can’t trust someone’s word these days.— Gary Lineker 💙 (@GaryLineker) August 26, 2021
Evidently, if Levy really has suckered Kane into staying, the BBC Match of the Day host isn’t too impressed.
In our view, a verbal agreement simply isn’t strong enough in this day and age.
Especially when we’re talking about a player widely considered to be Europe’s best striker, a concrete release clause has to be involved.
If Kane really wanted to leave, he absolutely needed to get it written into his contract, or he can have no complaints about not getting his way.
Unless he gets that done soon, he should probably prepare to stay at Tottenham until his contract ends, knowing how tough Levy is.
