Harry Kane latest: What Levy is demanding from any new Tottenham manager

Harry Kane latest: What Levy is demanding from any new Tottenham manager - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is demanding one thing as a major priority from any new Spurs manager.

The Lowdown: Conte exit looming?

Despite possessing an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months, it is believed that Lilywhites head coach Antonio Conte could well depart at the end of this Premier League season.

There is apparently a decreasing appetite behind-the-scenes to keep Conte with reliable reports claiming that sporting director Fabio Paratici has already drawn up a managetial shortlist.

On this proposed list, it is believed that Mauricio Pochettino, Roberto De Zerbi, Luis Enrique, Thomas Tuchel, Marco Silva and Thomas Frank all feature as potential candidates to replace Conte.

There have been major calls for Spurs to re-appoint Pochettino in particular with members of the Tottenham fanbase pleading for the Argentine’s reunion.

The Latest: Sky reporter shares Levy manager demand…

Taking to Twitter, reliable Sky journalist Lyall Thomas has shared exactly what every Spurs manager candidate will need to pass Levy’s interview.

Indeed, it is believed that impressing star striker Harry Kane, commanding his respect and potentially persuading him to stay is ‘top of the job spec’.

Thomas said:

“Keeping Harry Kane is Daniel Levy’s top priority and top of the job spec for any new manager (IF Conte leaves) is being able to command Kane’s respect and help keep him at the club.”

The Verdict: Huge priority…

Regardless of who eventually comes in to replace Conte if he does leave, there is little arguing that keeping Kane happy and at the club should be very much top of the priority list.

Tottenham appear to have an array of talented coaches to target for the managerial role, but the same certainly cannot be said of strikers to replace Kane.

Anybody who comes in to succeed the England international would most likely command a marquee fee and it is debateable whether they would contribute to the same effectiveness as Kane.

Boasting 20 goals in 27 league games, the 29-year-old is also Tottenham’s best-performing player by average match rating this season (WhoScored).

His ability to drop deep and link up play is also a huge asset to Spurs with Kane clinching both the Playmaker of the Year award and Golden Boot at the end of this 2020/2021 season.

Homegrown and Tottenham’s prodigal son, perhaps even the greatest managers in world football would have a mountainous task on their hands filling a Kane-shaped hole in Spurs’ first team.
