There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding Harry Kane’s future, as the English striker is one of the most prolific goal-scorers in the world, but has struggled to win silverware at North London.
Moreover, Kane has been a long-time target for both Real Madrid and Barcelona, so winning a trophy would be the only way to keep him in the team, or at least that’s why we all thought.
However, former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch thinks Kane is going nowhere, now that the team appointed Jose Mourinho as their boss to replace Mauricio Pochettino:
“I don’t see why he would leave. People are saying he needs to win trophies. He is 26, he has got a winner as a manager at that football club, he is captain there – an incredible stadium, an incredible training ground, he’s from the area. If he can win something at Tottenham, which he can do under Mourinho, it will mean more to him than winning somewhere else,” Crouch told the Daily Mail.
Tottenham have thrived with Mourinho as their boss so far, winning all of their games under the Portuguese’s tutelage, and Crouch thinks he’s changed from his failed tenures with Chelsea and Manchester United:
“He has been happy and he looks a bit different. He looks like he has his smile back on his face – he looks similar to the Jose we saw when he first came to Chelsea. They look like a Mourinho team now. They have got fantastic attacking flair and they have got the right blend. He could be the right man at the right time for Spurs. It is a breath of fresh air and hopefully, it will continue and that will be good news for Spurs,” he concluded.
The Spurs better start winning trophies right now or they’ll risk losing arguably the best striker in club history, but if anyone can turn this team around, that’s Jose Mourinho.
