Tottenham Hotspur fan, podcaster and singer Antony Costa has made a claim concerning Lilywhites striker Harry Kane and his future at the north London club.
On the subject of Kane, who started and played the entire game against Pep Guardiola’s side, Costa had this to say about his future and where that may lie.
He said: “If he wants to go, let the geezer go. Go and do a [Gareth] Bale, go to City, go to wherever for two, three years, go and win your trophies and come back to us where you’re 31, 32.
“Let him go and win things, because it’s not fair that we’re holding him back and he’s got these individuals around him.”
Overall, the 27-year-old, who is currently valued at £108 million has made 319 appearances for the club in which he has managed to score 209 goals and provide 44 assists across all competitions (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Antony Costa’s comments on Kane and his future…
Given how Kane has yet to win a trophy at Spurs since making his debut for the senior team and that the club are currently sat in ninth place in the Premier League table, it’s understandable why Costa thinks Kane should consider leaving the club if he wants to win titles.
Do you think Kane needs to leave Spurs to win trophies?
In our view, with Spurs set to take on City again in the Carabao Cup final later this season, and the fact that they are currently fighting to win the Europa League, if Spurs were to win these titles, this could persuade Kane to remain at the club if he was thinking about leaving to win some trophies.
However, failure to do so would only stretch their barren run to 13 trophyless campaigns, and hardly show the signs that Spurs is the place to claim silverware.
