A few months ago, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane appeared on Gary Neville’s show “The Overlap” where he discussed his future with the north London-based club. The entire summer, Kane saw his name linked to Manchester City, but the move never occurred.
Some will think that the interest from their Premier League rival unsettled Kane, who is off to a poor start with zero goals and just four shots in four league games this season.
Former Tottenham star and talkSPORT pundit Darren Bent stated to the media outlet that the interview with Neville is the source of Kane’s poor form.
“We know he’s not been great, but I don’t think he’s been at his best ever since he gave that interview with Gary Neville,” Bent stated to talkSPORT breakfast. “If you look at him throughout the Euros as well, I know he got a few goals later on in the tournament but he struggled [in the group stage].
“And this season, I know he got a couple in the Europa Conference, but he hasn’t looked anywhere near himself. Again in the Crystal Palace game, I think that’s the first time in his career he’s never touched the ball in the opposition box.”
However, Neville didn’t stay quiet. Instead, the Sky Sports pundit took to Twitter and blamed Kane’s poor form on Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy for backtracking and not working out a deal that would allow Kane to leave for Manchester City.
Tottenham will face Arsenal in the latest edition of the north London Derby, and Kane hopes that this fixture can help him break out of his poor form.
