Things have been kind of shaky for Tottenham Hotspur to start the season. A slow start of the campaign ended up costing Mauricio Pochettino his job, with Jose Mourinho taking over as the team's new boss.
'The Special One' has hit the ground running with a 2-0 start since being appointed at North London but, according to former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood, time is running out if they want to keep Harry Kane with the team for the long run:
"Kane needs to win something. So I think he’ll give it a period of time, certainly next season. The end of this season and next season and see if they can get closer to winning something. And if they don’t, then he will leave," Sherwood told beIN Sports.
The former coach elaborated his argument by claiming all soccer players know that they'll be rich no matter how many trophies they win throughout their career, noting that Kane's motivation won't be earning more money, but finally winning trophies:
“All professional footballers are now going to be rich when they finish no matter who they are, even the bad ones. They are all going to be millionaires, that is the way it is. But you want trophies, you want to say what you have won at the end of it," he concluded.
Kane is arguably the best number 9 in the world and there will be no shortage of offers sitting on his table once his contract with the Spurs runs out, for sure, with Real Madrid, Manchester United, and even FC Barcelona constantly looming around.
So, Mourinho better starts working his good-old magic fast and finally win some silverware for the Spurs, as Daniel Levy has made it clear that he's only looking to win trophies even if they come behind some ugly soccer.
