However, a string of previous bad results in the two games leading up to the Villa victory saw a lot of rumours surface surrounding the future of Kane with Tottenham’s chances for a trophy now limited to their Carabao Cup clash against Manchester City.
Speaking on the rumours surrounding Kane, who scored the second goal in the weekend win over Villa, Gold had this to say about the 27-year-old’s future.
He said: “I think as soon as he signed that deal, he essentially pretty much handcuffed himself – essentially it’s because he’s getting great money.
“I think he kind of handcuffed himself to Tottenham for maybe the rest of his career, which is great for Spurs fans, but it’s purely because with that amount of time left on his contract and how good he is right now – he is a player whose value has only gone up.
“Maybe last summer, you could have said with the injury problems, you could have said, ‘Oh well, the pandemic and everything, his fee will have come down that Spurs would ask for him – not a chance.”
Do you think Kane would want to leave Spurs this summer?
Kane has featured 27 times for Spurs in the Premier League this season and has found the back of the net 17 times as well as providing 13 assists.
TIF Thoughts on Gold’s comments…
Despite the rumours which are hitting the headlines regarding the England captain’s future, Gold seems pretty confident he will remain a Tottenham player ahead of next season, which seems a big call given his individual form and Spurs’ shortcomings not only this season, but throughout Kane’s career.
Kane has been critical to Tottenham this season, as no player has scored more goals and provided more assists than the 27-year-old this season in the league, but he faces a real danger of not playing European football next season as Spurs sit in sixth place but just three points off fourth-placed Chelsea with plenty of clubs queuing up behind them.
