Ferdinand suggests Harry Kane should consider Spurs future in search of trophies

Rio Ferdinand has suggested that Harry Kane considers leaving Tottenham Hotspur in search of silverware.

The 26-year-old is one of the most prolific goalscorers in Premier League history, netting 130 goals in 188 league appearances, though is yet to get his hands on a single piece of silverware, finishing as a runner up in the 2015 League Cup finals and last season’s Champions League final.

Spurs‘ start to the 2019/20 season hasn’t exactly been brilliant, having already dropping 10 points in the Premier League, getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Colchester United, before Bayern Munich rocked up at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and netted seven on Tuesday night.

Now, speaking in his punditry role for BT Sport, Rio Ferdinand has said that the North London club were a better outfit a few years ago, and has suggested that the England captain considers a future elsewhere in the quest for silverware, just as he did when he opted for a move from Leeds to Manchester United back in 2002.

“It asks you the question, ‘What are you in the game for?’ Are you in the game for staying at one club and being a one-club man and being a legend at that club, or are you in it to win trophies?

“And then you ask yourself the next question, ‘Do Spurs look like a team capable of winning trophies?’ I don’t think so, no. I think they were a better team probably a couple of years ago.

“Leeds is a very similar example as to where I was and a similar time in his career, probably I was a year or two younger, but I was in a team that reached the Champions League semi-final.

“Nearly in a team to win the league, maybe, who had a chance, potentially. And I thought I have got a better chance elsewhere and I had the opportunity to go, and that was Manchester United.

“And I made a very quick decision, ‘I want to go and win trophies’, because my career will be based in my own mind on winning trophies.

“And Harry Kane is probably having those questions in his mind, and they need answering soon because he is 26 now and you only get a window of opportunity and it comes and goes very quickly.”
