Pundit reckons Kane’s future depends on who Spurs appoint next
By Bruce Grove -

Paul Robinson reckons that Spurs will seek the opinion of Harry Kane before they name a new permanent manager.

The Lilywhites have just fired Jose Mourinho after he oversaw a poor last few months at the club.

They had made him their manager so that they can finally end their trophy drought and also return to the top four.

However, things haven’t gone their way in recent weeks and their form before he was sacked didn’t suggest that they could win the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.

Kane has been a star for the team in this campaign as he has scored more than enough goals and provided an abundance of assists.

With 31 goals and 16 assists all season, he is easily the best and most important player at the club.

He has been tipped to leave, but Robinson says his relationship with the next manager would be the key thing.

“When you look at the squad Spurs have got, it is world-class,” he told Football Insider.

“They need to sign two centre-halves but other than that the squad is exceptional.

“The biggest job for whoever comes in is persuading Harry Kane to stay. They need somebody who can work closely with him and help the club achieve his goals.

“He is all important to this and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has had discussions with the chairman as to how the club go forward from here in regards to a new manager etc.

“The most important thing is going to be the new manager’s relationship with Kane. It is vital that they keep him at the club. It will be a massive opportunity for somebody.”

The new question for Kane, is if you want to leave to win a trophy, exactly what trophy? You want to break the PL scoring record – where do you go for that? You want to be Englands all time top scorer – where do you go for that?

Apparently Gareth Southgate fancies a return to club management and was mentioned as a candidate. Thanks but no thanks.

The stupidty of ex players shines brightly. Alan shearer calls for the big 6 to be banned from the pl immediately. Let me think what bt and sky might think about that idea. So there goes the TV money how long would any club last without it and no crowds. Well done hommer shearer.

What is Robbo on? An exceptional squad? World class? Hmmm. A couple of exceptional players in Harry and Sonny and a few very good players but a load of dross in there as well. I would agree 2 centre halfs are required but you can add a new keeper, right back, attacking midfielder and second striker to the shopping list as a minimum as well.

We do not need a new attacking midfielder with the squad we have. We have Los Celso, Ali, Mousa, Lamela, Bergwein, and Bale all fighting for 2 positions. At a pinch you can have Ndombele playing a more advanced role also. Is that a terrible selection of players? I think you have taken on board some of the more egregious excuses of Jose for how he set the teams up to play.

Right back – Tanganga is either a RB or a CB, and he has real potential to be very good in either position. So either we just need two CB or one CB and one RB.

2nd striker – needed although our backup hasn’t really been given enough of a chance and his goals to game ratio has still been very good, especially for a backup who hardly gets any games.

We really only need 2-3 players urgently, I would think getting a new RB and a new CB should be the priority. The keeper needs replacing as he gets older, but not this season really.

Rodgers is an excellent man manager, his calmer more methodical approach and style will be pretty convincing after the “explode” controlling mindset of Mourinho, that said I wouldn’t blame Harry if he sought pastures new.

Why would Rodgers want to leave the Foxes because we are a supposedly bigger club? It ain’t happening me thinks!

Suffice it to say reverting back to the revolving door of managers whoever takes the Spurs hot seat will be expected to accomplish the holy grail!. Winning nought Poch had 5 years. Others less!

Poch met and exceeded his job remit for 5 years that is why he kept his job. I doubt the board even mentioned the cups other than to say we don’t care about them. His job was 1. get top 4 and 2. as a bonus get out of group stages champions league. If you are judging him differently to what he was expected to perform in his job then it’s a bit unfair on him.

He got 2nd in the league and no backing whatsoever in the transfer market, then runners up champions league and sacked. Football hasn’t been about winning medals and trophies for a long time, it’s about how much money you get which depends on your league position solely.

I do wonder if chairman actually care about winning the league even, as the cost in terms of investment compared the extra money you earn isn’t really worth it.

That’s the question, I think the players need someone who rebuilds their confidence.

Whilst I am not surprised by the sacking of Mourinho, the timing is rather strange, being less than one week before the Carabao Cup. It has been suggested that Jose was vehemently against the ESL and that Levy had to sack him and get him to sign a non-disclosure agreement before Mourinho went public with his opposition to this abomination. If this is true, he has gone up enormously in my estimation whilst Levy cannot go any lower.

Levy is strange, stranger than fiction. I’m sure he’s an alien from the planet Baldy.

The thing the super league does is it makes a decision for Harry very difficult. With all the big clubs in it there is only really psg as an option. If he went there he would win things but what does the future hold for the cl the league the super league. One thing for sure I can’t see him moving to Leicester or West ham. Crazy times just got a lot bit more with the super league and Jose gone.

Honestly the funniest thing for me is that West Ham are gloating about finally being above us and may be in the running for qualifying for Champions League when suddenly many of the major European Clubs decide to set up a new Super European League. Is that a coincidence, or no one wants West Ham lowering the tone?

There is simply no manager in the world – even with an open cheque book (which he wont get) will turn Spurs into contenders in the next 2yrs. Kane needs to go for his own sake.

With an open cheque book Jose would’ve done it.
He would’ve bought Diaz who has sorted out Man.C defence & won them the title.

yes – but we dont have Jose – I am talking about now. Had Poch been given one, he could have won stuff too.

Looks like Levy gave himself a open cheque book paying ridiculous wages for Bale was never gonna end well

Everybody knew that discarded ineffective Bale was not at the races at RM when we secured the loan deal was a huge risk which has badly backfired!

IMO Poch’s biggest error of misjudgement was not playing Moura in the CL final! Would it have made any difference who knows but with Moura on a “high” after his CL semi final exploits he deserved to retain his place in the side on this occasion!

It would be exactly like Iheanacho not playing in the F.A. Cup final, Vardy [recovering from injury] probably playing as bad as Kane was for us at the time

That was a huge mistake. I think also saying he might leave Spurs if he won didn’t help.
