Thierry Henry Says Harry Kane Should Leave Tottenham
Arsenal FC legend, Thierry Henry, believes Harry Kane should leave Tottenham this summer if he has to win a trophy in his life.
Kane will go a 13th successive season at Spurs without a trophy after the club’s deflating Champions League football exit on Wednesday night.
Antonio Conte’s side was beaten 1-0 by AC Milan over two legs to crash out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage.
Tottenham’s exit looks set to spark fresh speculation over Kane’s future, with the 29-year-old linked with the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City in recent years.
Henry Thierry believes Kane should leave Tottenham and says the “outstanding’’ England striker is too good to finish his career without any trophies. Henry told CBS Sports:
If I was him I would go. It’s up for him to choose where but I would go, he has to know where he wants to go. A player like that, a player of his calibre, should not talk about just his goals at the end of his career. If I was him, I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if all I could talk about is my goals.
Listen, it’s a great achievement and I have massive respect for him — I think he’s outstanding. But if that’s the only thing you can bring to the table at the end of your career, that’s tough for me.
Speaking after the Champions League exit, Kane said:
Where we’re at as a club, we should be winning trophies. That’s always the aim.
The top four [being our only target] is a consequence of not playing as well as we want to play. Now that’s all we can fight for so that’s going to be the goal and hopefully we can achieve that come the end of the season.
Kane has scored a record 268 goals in 423 appearances for Tottenham and is chasing Alan Shearer’s all-time English Premier League tally.
As a result, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes Kane will be keen to stay in England if he does leave Tottenham but admits there are not many options for the striker.
