Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham, thinks that Harry Kane “can undoubtedly win trophies” with the team.
With only one year remaining on his contract and rumours of a summer transfer to Manchester United or Paris Saint-Germain, Kane has excelled during a difficult season at Tottenham with 23 Premier League goals, second only to Erling Haaland.
The 29-year-old has played for Tottenham his whole professional career and is the club’s all-time leading scorer, but he has yet to take home a medal of any sort. Spurs last won a trophy in 2008, when they won the League Cup, which was 15 years ago.
Levy was asked whether the dry spell may come to an end with Harry Kane. In response, he said, “[Kane] can definitely bring home a title at Spurs. Considering he is Tottenham Hotspur’s leading scorer, he is breaking records. Outside of our club, I hope there will one day be a statue of Harry Kane”.
Levy also expressed his frustration with the trophyless run and the fact that Arsenal, who is now leading the Premier League table, is positioned above Spurs in the rankings. “Am I content that we have only won one trophy during the previous 15 years? Without a doubt, absolutely not” he continued. “But I also believe that we’ve experienced some amazing moments and have participated in the Champions League frequently.”
The long-term ownership of Tottenham has been the subject of rising rumours in recent months, with discussions of outside investment and potential purchasers preparing offers, while cries of “Levy out” have been heard from the fans during the last two home matches.
“ENIC owns around 87% of the club,” Levy continued. “We have 30,000 shareholders, the majority of them are stockholders who are admirers. We owe it to everyone to have their ideas taken into consideration. We are not in discussions with anyone, is all I would want to say. We haven’t been either recently.”
