    Harry Kane urged to stay despite Tottenham’s 15-year trophy drought

    Tottenham Hotspur boss Daniel Levy has urged his skipper and star striker Harry Kane to remain at the club despite their trophy drought.


    The Lilly Whites and England skipper has been heavily linked with a move away from the club and several outfits are reportedly vying for his signature.


    Manchester United, Paris St. Germain, and Real Madrid are some of the teams said to be courting the club’s all-time top goalscorer in the English Premier League.


    Kane has shone during a turbulent season at Spurs with 23 goals in the Premier League, he trails Manchester City’s Erling Haaland in the goal chart so far.


    However, with one year left on his current deal, he is reportedly considering a move for him to win trophies considering his age.


    The 29-year-old has spent his entire senior career at Tottenham but he is yet to win a single trophy, with Spurs last lifting silverware 15 years ago when they won the League Cup in 2008.

    “[Kane] can absolutely win a trophy at Spurs,” Levy is quoted by Sky Sports.


    “But being a legend is also important. The fact that he’s top scorer of Tottenham Hotspur – he’s making history. I hope one day that there is a statue of Harry Kane outside our stadium.”

    The chairman, Levy also admitted that it is painful to see his side failing to lift silverware and looked at their north London rivals, Arsenal who are doing well and seen as hot favourites to win this season’s EPL title.


    He said he is not happy they haven’t won more than one trophy in the past 15 years but he thinks they’ve had some fantastic times as they have also participated in the UEFA Champions League a number of times.

    “Despite the fact I feel sick there’s another club in north London [Arsenal] that’s a bit higher than us at this moment in time, if I look back over the past five years, we’ve also been above them – so, it’s what happens,” he added.

    He said it has been an incredible journey for the club and in the 22 years, Tottenham has progressed in that time period.

     
    “Not as much, as a fan, we would hope – but, hopefully, the journey is not over and we get that trophy we need,” he concluded.
