Gary Neville believes that something went wrong behind the scenes at Tottenham that has led to Harry Kane going on strike. He also believes that Kane is now on a collision course with Daniel Levy. The England captain was due to arrive at the club’s Enfield training base on Monday after an extended break following Euro 2020. Kane did not report in an attempt to force a move to Manchester City.
”If Harry Kane was meant to report to pre-season training with Tottenham on Monday, then he should’ve come back. You can never advocate any player not turning up for training – it’s as simple as that.” Gary Neville said after Harry Kane did not show p for training. ”You’ve got to turn up and you’ve got to do your job. However, I’ve worked with Harry and I can’t think of a more professional footballer than I’ve ever seen. He does everything right, so he must be seriously annoyed. Something has happened badly that has made him do that.”
”It still doesn’t excuse it for me. He should still have come into training, and you respect your teammates. You still have to go and stand with them and sit in the dressing-room, but it’s clear now that there’s a collision course.” he added. ”They were on collision course already at the end of last season when Harry clearly felt something was happening and he’s taken Daniel Levy on. Not many do it, and not many come out the other side, but it’ll be interesting to see which clubs are involved.”
