Danny Rose says that Tottenham ‘means the world’ to Harry Kane and has discussed the forward’s ‘aura’ at the north London side.
The future of the England captain has been a source of speculation in recent months after Kane admitted he would consider leaving the club if they failed to match his ambitions, the 26-year-old yet to win major silverware in his career despite establishing himself as one of the finest forwards in world football.
Kane’s ambitions are justified following a career that has seen the star score 136 goals in just 201 Premier League appearances, and Rose is hopeful the two-time Golden Boot winner can win silverware with Spurs in the coming seasons.
“With Harry, we all hope his goals and his performances will merit a trophy one way or another during his career, but Tottenham means the world to him,” he told the Lockdown Tactics podcast.
“We know that and when you see him disappointed, it’s just one of those things that when you’re on Harry’s team in training you win. It’s not a coincidence.
“You just don’t want to be on a losing side when you’re on Harry’s side, even in training. He’s got that aura that you want to do the best you can.”
Rose spoke further on Kane’s presence within the Tottenham dressing room, recalling the injured star’s influence during the club’s famous comeback victory over Ajax in the semi-finals of last season’s Champions League.
“One that sticks out is Ajax,” Rose explained. “He was injured but he came to Amsterdam and we were losing 2-0 at half-time, 3-0 on aggregate and he was watching in the stands.
“He came down and he just ripped into us basically. Just telling us we weren’t good enough and a certain player (Frenkie De Jong) was running the show for Ajax, what were we going to do about it? We had to pull our fingers out.
“He’s switched quite a few times Harry. You wouldn’t think it but when he goes, he loses it, but in a good way. He wants you to do better. He wants the best for himself but also for his team-mates.”
