Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Micky Hazard told talkSPORT that he doesn’t have any fear that Harry Kane will leave the club.
The Daily Mirror has reported that Manchester United are reported to have started proceedings to try and sign the player Hazard has described as an absolute hero, following his dramatic impact at White Hart Lane last season.
“I’ve got no fears or worries with Harry because he’s Tottenham through and through. He’s come through the ranks, he knows what Tottenham is all about and he loves it there – He’s an absolute hero there and he’s had an incredible season,” he said.
Why is Kane so important for Tottenham?
Kane is vital for Spurs for a variety of reasons but predominantly because he’s very young and identifies with everything that the club represents.
It could be very easy for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy to sell Kane for a massive fee and sign an exciting replacement, but that player won’t guarantee the same commitment that Kane boasts, because they won’t have such a strong connection with the football club.
He’s also an important player because he buys into what Mauricio Pochettino is trying to do at the club and seems to understand the way the Argentine wants him and the rest of the side to play.
Levy must learn his lessons
Daniel Levy needs to show that he’s learned lessons from the past in terms of selling off the club’s key players.
It’s always going to be a case of one step forward and two steps back for Spurs, if they are always selling off their best players when they reach a certain market value or level of performance.
If the Champions League is the goal, then Kane simply has to stay.
