Former Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock suggested on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Tuesday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 5) that Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy would have been pleased with Harry Kane’s performance at the Euro 2016 finals this summer.
Kane had a hugely disappointing 2016 European Championship campaign for England in France.
The Tottenham striker failed to score a single goal in four appearances for the Three Lions in the competition, creating six chances in the process.
The 22-year-old, though, is reportedly set to earn a new contract at Spurs. It has been reported by The Guardian that Kane will sign a new five-year deal in the coming weeks which will make him the North London club’s best-paid player.
Former Rotherham United and Crystal Palace manager Warnock has suggested that Tottenham chairman Levy would have been happy with Kane’s failure in France, as that would have helped him in negotiating a deal in the club’s favour.
“You might laugh at this, but in a way, I am sure Daniel Levy is quite pleased how he has played at the Euros because his negotiations would probably be a little bit easier,” said Warnock on The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Tuesday morning (broadcast from 6am, July 5).
Kane may have struggled to play well for England at the ongoing 2016 European Championship in France, but he remains a very good and hugely promising young striker.
The 22-year-old scored 25 goals and created 44 chances in 38 Premier League appearances for Tottenham last season.
During the 2014-15 campaign, the striker scored 21 goals and created 27 chances in league matches for Spurs.
