Graham Roberts has exclusively told The Transfer Tavern that reappointing Mauricio Pochettino as Tottenham manager would “100 percent” be enough to convince Harry Kane to stay this summer.
The pair struck up a close relationship during the Argentine’s five-and-a-half years in north London, with the striker being given the opportunity to establish himself as a regular for both club and country thanks to Pochettino’s trust.
Who should Tottenham appoint?
But Pochettino is currently managing PSG following his January appointment, but that hasn’t stopped those expected links with the Spurs vacancy after Jose Mourinho’s sacking last month.
Meanwhile, Kane’s future has come under serious doubt in recent weeks after reports suggested that the England captain will hand in a transfer request should Tottenham fail to qualify for the Champions League.
They’re currently five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and a further two behind Leicester in third, but they face the Foxes on the final-day.
But Roberts believes that Daniel Levy should apologise to Pochettino and bring him back, and asked whether he thought the sensational return would keep Kane in north London, he told The Transfer Tavern:
“Yes, 100 percent [Kane would stay]. If I was Levy, I’d be on my knees. Sometimes you make mistakes.
“How do you resurrect that? If you must apologise to him or get together and say, this, this and this.
“He knows what the football club is about, he knows what the supporters want, he knows what the chairman wants, and he knows what the players want.”
