Aside from the win over Borussia Dortmund last week, it’s barely been the best start to the campaign for the Tottenham Hotspur fans here in the Transfer Tavern.
Indeed, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are yet to get out of first gear and a third title tilt on the bounce looks like a pipe dream more anything right now.
So, comments from former Spurs boss Tim Sherwood in regards to one of Tottenham’s top stars haven’t gone down too well today.
Speaking on Sky Sports, the 48-year-old suggested Harry Kane could look to leave the club if they don’t win anything this season, with the England international recently linked with a move to Real Madrid.
“There’s only so much loyalty someone can show,” he told The Debate.
“Tottenham have been a great club for Harry and he’s been paying them back tenfold. He’s been outstanding over the last couple of seasons, he grew up a stone’s throw from the ground and the kid loves the club.
“But that only lasts a certain amount of time. Then he starts seeing the pound signs and sees the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid or – dare I say it – Manchester United – and then your head gets turned.”
As you can imagine, Sherwood’s suggestions have sparked quite the reaction amongst our north London locals, as well as on social media.
With that in mind, here’s a look at how Tottenham fans reacted to Tim Sherwood’s comments about Harry Kane.
Ah Tim Sherwood, desperately trying to stay relevant against all odds.
