Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has revealed that Harry Kane was not loved by the club when he was a young prospect and the team wanted him removed from the squad.
Sherwood wrote in a column on the 25th (Korean time) for the British <Daily Mail>, “Former general manager Franco Baldini criticized Kane for not being good enough for the English Premier League (EPL). Tottenham wanted me to get rid of him.” revealed 메이저놀이터
Kane is from Tottenham Youth and debuted in the adult team in 2011, but in the early days he went on loan to Leyton Orient, Millwall FC, Norwich City and Leicester City in succession. He showed his potential by winning the 2011-2012 Millwall Young Player of the Year award, but the Tottenham first team wall was high.
The person who selected him in the 2013-2014 season and used him in Tottenham was acting manager Sherwood. Sherwood took the helm and let Kane play after manager Andre Villas-Boas resigned.
Sherwood said: “There were clubs that wanted Kane. But they didn’t let him go. They didn’t listen. ‘The boy is good enough.’ It was,” he said.
In the end, Kane wrote a new history in about 10 years after he became Tottenham’s main player in earnest. He tied the club record for most goals (266 goals) set by Jimmy Greaves. He has only one goal left in the EPL 200th goal. This is a record set only by Alan Shearer (260 goals) and Wayne Rooney (208 goals).
“Sometimes fans want to embrace players whose last names end in I or O (as a metaphor for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo). They are more attractive than the academy players. But in the end, the boys are loyal to the team,” Sherwood said. “If I cut it in half, he will bleed the white blood of Tottenham. He finally won the love of the fans and loves them again.”
Meanwhile, Kane has a contract with Tottenham until the summer of 2024. With many British media outlets reporting that Kane is negotiating a renewal contract with Tottenham after 18 months, attention is focusing on whether he can remain as ‘Mr. Tottenham’ until the end.
