Harry Kane 'deserves much more than Tottenham', says Spurs team-mate
Harry Kane deserves to be fighting for trophies every season and Tottenham have not been able to meet his expectations, says team-mate Moussa Sissoko.
Kane has once again excelled for Spurs and recently collected the third Premier League Golden Boot of his career, but despite his continued excellence, he has had another season with nothing to show for it.
The 27-year-old is yet to win a major trophy with the North London side.
The club’s failures have ultimately led to Kane requesting a transfer away – news that sent shockwaves through English football and put the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City on high alert.
The story then took another turn when news emerged that Mauricio Pochettino could complete a sensational comeback to the club after failing to settle in at Paris Saint-Germain.
However, any return of Pochettino is not going to have an impact on Kane’s decision to leave, according to reports.
Kane to leave Tottenham?
One player who thinks the England international is within his rights to ask for a move away is Sissoko, who describes his team-mate as “extraordinary”.
“Like all players, [Kane] wants to win titles,” Sissoko told Foot Mercato. “A player of his stature deserves to win titles each season. Sadly, we have failed to do so each time for various reasons. I think that this must irk him inside.
“He did not officially say that he wanted to leave the club. Harry is one of, today, the best attackers in the world. Each year, he finishes as the top scorer in the Premier League or is among the best goalscorers in the league.
“He executed an exceptional year because he finished as top scorer and top assister in the Premier League.
Sissoko ultimately doesn’t know whether Kane will leave, but if he does, he has the Frenchman’s best wishes.
“I do not know if he will leave or not, but if he ever did leave, I would wish him the best because he deserves to win titles with all that he has done. He is truly an extraordinary player,” he continued.
“We would like to have him with us for as long as possible, aside from that, it is all between the president, his agent and him. I simply wish him the best.”
Kane is currently with the England squad preparing for the rescheduled European Championships, though will likely have his agent in his ear about any big money offers coming in.
