Tottenham: Paddy Kenny laments ‘disappointing’ Harry Kane situation

Tottenham: Paddy Kenny laments ‘disappointing’ Harry Kane situation -Premier League News

Former Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has lamented the untimely speculation surrounding the future of Tottenham striker Harry Kane. 

The lowdown: Conte annoyed

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann recently opened the door to a possible swoop for the Lilywhites’ talisman when suggesting that the lethal England captain would ‘score a lot’ in the Bundesliga.

The comments riled Spurs boss Antonio Conte, who responded by branding the German coach ‘disrespectful’ for talking about other club’s players in the wake of a 2-1 pre-season win at Rangers last week.

Upon hearing both sides of the back-and-forth, one pundit has had his say on the situation ahead of the Premier League starting next weekend…

The latest: ‘Last thing Tottenham need’

Speaking to Football Insider, former Leeds United shot-stopper Kenny has claimed that the unsettling background comments aren’t helpful to Conte’s plans at Tottenham.

The 44-year-old said: “It’s disappointing from Bayern Munich. This is the last thing Tottenham need with Kane trying to push through a move to Man City last summer.

“Everything has been quiet this year and everything is going in the right direction then someone throws a spanner in the works. Bayern are interested all of a sudden. I think Kane will stay, Tottenham are on the up, for me. They have an amazing new stadium, they love the manager and they have made some really good signings.

“They are going to be up there pushing the top three this season. I would be disappointed with Bayern if I was Tottenham.”

The verdict: Spot on

It could yet happen that no move may come to fruition, but with a gaping hole left behind in Munich by the exit of prolific marksman Robert Lewandowski, few elite strikers in the world remain to potentially fill such a void, and Kane is among them.

After coming through months of prolonged speculation regarding a move to Premier League rivals Manchester City, the 29-year-old England captain – who was lauded as ‘frightening’ by Arsenal legend Ian Wright recently – struggled to find his peak form at the start of the 2021/22 campaign, a problem that Tottenham will hope won’t reoccur this term.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Kane eventually netted 27 times and provided 10 assists in 50 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring 17 times in the league to take him to 183 goals in the English top flight, 77 behind all-time record holder Alan Shearer.

Whilst there have been no reports of imminent incoming bids from Germany or beyond, Tottenham and Conte know all too well of the need to keep their £81m-valued prized asset on form and content, a task which would be made more straightforward by making a positive start to the 2022/23 campaign.
