Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has suggested that Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane looks “frustrated” at the club, following their inability to win a trophy in recent years. Despite Kane’s remarkable performances this season, Spurs have struggled as a team and have already had three different managers this campaign. Ryan Mason, the current manager, is doing his best to turn things around, but it may be too little too late.
Kane, who is also the captain of the English national team, recently spoke to Sky Sports about Tottenham’s struggles this season. He indicated that the standards at the club have dropped since Mauricio Pochettino, the former Tottenham manager, left the club. “We need to discuss some of the standards around the team and the training ground, which we need to get back to. We had [standards] those in place when Mauricio Pochettino was here, so internally we need to do that,” he said.
Wenger, a respected figure in the world of football, has analyzed Kane’s comments and provided his own insights into the situation. He suggested that Kane’s frustration is likely due to the high standards that he sets for himself and his teammates. “Translated, it means that not everybody gives the maximum to perform during training to be good enough in the game,” he said.
Wenger also spoke about the importance of creating a positive culture within a football club. He stressed that managers need to establish clear rules for the team, so that everyone understands what is expected of them. “You have to create a culture inside the club that allows the players to perform. You need clear rules for everybody to see what you tolerate and what you don’t tolerate. When you talk about values, most of the time it is [about] what is not tolerated,” he said.
The former Arsenal manager concluded by acknowledging Kane’s frustration, which he believes stems from Tottenham’s recent failures. He suggested that the team needs to work harder to create a winning culture and return to their former glory. “Players like Harry Kane have high standards. He is now frustrated because for years the team looked on the way up. Since two or three years they look to have failed again,” he said.
In summary, Kane’s frustration at Tottenham’s lack of success is understandable given his own high standards and the team’s recent struggles. Wenger’s analysis highlights the importance of creating a positive culture within a football club, with clear rules and expectations, in order to help players perform to their best ability. Only time will tell if Tottenham can turn their season around and return to their former glory.
