Kane – “You’d be stupid to leave Spurs right now”

Harry Kane has claimed it would be “stupid” for him or his team-mates to consider leaving Tottenham Hotspur and rates manager Mauricio Pochettino as one of the best in the world.

Striker Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Kyle Walker, Danny Rose and Hugo Lloris have all played their way on to the wishlists of Europe’s biggest clubs over the past 18 months.

But Tottenham have managed to secure all their star players to long-term contracts and Kane is insistent there is nowhere better for them all to be.

For the second successive season, Spurs are battling for the Premier League title and are looking forward to moving into their new £750million stadium in time for the 2018/19 season.

Asked by Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport about the interest in him and his team-mates, Kane said: “I would be surprised if any of my team-mates were to leave now.

“Something’s going on here, we’re just missing that last step – to win trophies. It would be stupid to leave now.”

Pochettino, who has transformed the fortunes of Kane and Co since his arrival, is clearly a big influence on Tottenham keeping hold of their best players.

“We have one of the best coaches in the world, perhaps the best,” added Kane. “Soon there will be a new stadium. The future is promising.”

Chelsea this month saw Diego Costa’s head turned by a huge offer from China, but Kane made it clear where his own priorities lie.

“You have to choose whether to take the money, or follow your own ambitions, playing in the best League in the world and winning titles.”
