Harry Kane will only be a serial winner if he leaves Tottenham, says ex Spurs boss

 

By Liam Blackburn

Harry Kane's former Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas expects the striker will eventually leave Spurs if he craves "trophies and notoriety".

Villas-Boas, who was in charge of Spurs between 2012 and 2013, gave Kane his Premier League bow but disagreed with the youngster over how he could best develop, with the player unwilling to leave on loan at the start of the 2013-14 term.

It was after Villas-Boas departed in December of that campaign when Kane truly came to the fore and, following four seasons of 30-plus goals for club and country, the 24-year-old has constantly been linked with Real Madrid.

And though Kane has an emotional attachment to his boyhood club, Villas-Boas said that such a factor could be outweighed by the wish to claim multiple winners' medals elsewhere.

"It depends on Harry and his ambitions for the future and how he sees his career going forward," said the Portuguese. "If he has a hunger for trophies and for notoriety he would have to leave Spurs, if he has no hunger for that, but (wants) recognition and stability, he would stay at Spurs.

"Spurs are in that breakout moment of becoming a great football team - the (new) stadium, infrastructure, training ground is there, the team is building up, very well managed.

"The trophy cabinet is still what is missing for this great club. That is in the end what footballers chase - glory.

"For Harry, one or two more years at Spurs wouldn't be bad and see how the club develops."
