After Tottenham Hotspur’s humiliating 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United, resulting in their exit from the FA Cup, Harry Redknapp noticed a despondent Harry Kane walking off the pitch. The England captain, who Redknapp describes as “unbelievable,” has been rumored to be considering moves to Manchester United and Bayern Munich due to his lack of success in winning trophies with Spurs.
Despite the appointment of Antonio Conte, a serial winner, the club’s trophy drought persists. Redknapp now suggests that Kane may have felt disheartened by the realization that he could struggle to win any silverware at Tottenham, following their recent FA Cup defeat.
Although the ‘phenomenal’ goalscorer Harry Kane is widely praised for his unwavering consistency, he is often criticized for his failure to contribute to any significant achievements. According to Harry Redknapp, this criticism may have hit home for Kane after Tottenham’s defeat to Sheffield United in the FA Cup, making him realize the harsh reality of his lack of tangible success with the club.
“When I saw Harry Kane walking off the pitch last night, his expression was extremely downcast. It seemed as though he was thinking, ‘What on earth is happening here?’ While I understand that securing a top-four spot is crucial, being benched and not going all out for a trophy must have felt like a gamble. In my opinion, Tottenham should have given it their all to win the game last night and pursue the trophy.”
Harry Redknapp expressed his belief that Harry Kane should have started in the game and questioned Tottenham’s commitment to winning the competition. He also speculated that Kane’s despondent demeanor could be a sign of him feeling resigned to never winning a trophy with the club. Only time will tell whether Redknapp’s predictions are accurate, as Kane’s defeat in the FA Cup could be the final blow that leads him to push for a transfer away from Tottenham.
