Levy deserves more credit for making Kane stay reckons journalist


Harry Kane will spend this season at Tottenham after the club refused to sell him to Manchester City.

The striker asked Spurs to cash in on him in this transfer window so that he can join a club where he has a better chance of winning trophies.

However, Spurs were not prepared to allow their star man to leave and rejected the advances of City.

After trying his best to get his move and failing, Kane tweeted he would stay at the club, a huge win for them.

One man who made that happen is Daniel Levy, but not everyone likes the Tottenham supremo.

Financial expert and Football Insider columnist, Kieran Maguire believes Levy was key in forcing Kane to remain at the club, thanks to his negotiation skills and says the business executive deserves more credit than he is being given for keeping the striker.

“He will feel vindicated,” he told Football Insider.

“He has seen it happen with other clubs. I don’t like some of the passive-aggressive anti-semitic remarks aimed at Daniel Levy.

“He’s well-paid at what he does and very good at what he does. He should be given huge credit for running the club successfully.

“He will see it as a victory. Let’s not forget he owns about 20 per cent of the club himself.

“Ultimately, it’s a business. If your focus is on the business side of things, a lot of credit has to be given to those in charge.

“It’s about striking a balance between sporting success and financial management.”

Kane will now look to help Spurs win a trophy this season and they have started the campaign well under Nuno Espirito Santo.
