It would make no sense for Tottenham to drop Harry Kane, says former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer.
While he was able to score that hat-trick against Mura in the Europa Conference League after coming off the bench, prior, there had been calls for Nuno Espirito Santo to leave the Tottenham striker out of his starting XI for the Premier League.
Should Kane be dropped?
For Palmer, though, dropping the England captain is simply not the solution. The ex-Leeds United star exclusively told TIF:
“You can’t drop him now. What would be the point of dropping him if you decided not to sell him? That doesn’t make sense.
“If you’re talking about letting him go in January and then you drop him from the side, then you certainly can’t be asking for 100 million plus for a player that’s not playing in a team.”
Tottenham do not have an abundance of natural centre-forwards at the club. From a manager’s perspective, you can see why Nuno would persist with Kane, especially after his Thursday night hat-trick.
That hat-trick was probably just what the 28-year-old needed and can perhaps help him to really kick on this season now.
