Tottenham Hotspur boss, Muaricio Pochetino has played down talks hinting that Spurs’ top striker Harry Kane will leave the club if they do not win a silverware by the end of the season.
Following Tim Sherwood’s recent comment on Kane’s future, where he said the 24-year-old forward might leave Spurs if they end the season trophy-less again, but Pochettino has dismissed the speculation stating that the England international ‘loves Tottenham’.
“There’s only so much loyalty someone can show,” Sherwood who is a former Totttenham manager told Sky Sports.
“He’s been outstanding over the last couple of seasons, but that only lasts a certain amount of time.
“…The only way they can keep him is to win something this year”.
Spurs boss, Pochettino hailed the Kane as one of the best strikers in the world and said he is looking to have the striker at the club for a long time.
“Harry is one of the best strikers in the world and many people are talking about him. Pochettino stated ahead of Tottenham’s weekend game against West Ham United at the Olimpic stadium.
“Some people are also saying we must win trophies for Harry to stay with us but it’s already been made very clear.
“He’s one of our best strikers, Harry is our player, he loves Tottenham, he’s staying here and he’s looking forward to staying here for a long time.
“Tim (Sherwood) has the right to speak about Tottenham and Harry. But that is a question more for Harry and what he’s going to do. The answer is Harry has the power and decision to say what he wants to do in the future.”
Kane who is under contract with Tottenham Hotspur until the summer of 2022 has seen his stock rise in the recent three seasons with scintillating performances for club and country and was recently named on the FIFpro World XI shortlist on Wednesday.
