Harry Kane TEAMtalk

Teddy Sheringham has offered some advice to Harry Kane and thinks the Tottenham striker is at a “crossroads” in his career.

Kane recently admitted he won’t stay at Tottenham “for the sake of it” and he has been continually linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester United, while yesterday he was linked with a move to Newcastle United, subject to their takeover going through.

The England frontman is 26 years old and has a contract with Spurs until 2024, but former Spurs star Sheringham believes the number nine is at a turning point in his career and urged Kane to “make the most” of his remaining years.

When asked what advice he would give Kane over his future at Spurs, Sheringham told the Football Show on Sky Sports: “There are similarities but you have to look at Tottenham and where they are and where they were when I was playing for Tottenham. I think the ambition had been sucked out of the club when I was at Tottenham, weren’t really going places.

“At least with Tottenham are the moment they’re getting into the top four, they’re challenging for things, in the Champions League final not so long ago. He’s got to weigh up his situation. Does he want to leave? Are there going to be top players coming in to play with him?

“Or is he going to have to go elsewhere to play with top players? At the moment I would say his career at Tottenham – I know they haven’t won anything – has been steadily going forward. But I think it might be at a crossroads.




“And if not this year, if they haven’t won anything or if they don’t look like they are going forwards in the next season I think there could be changes because Harry has only got one career and he wants to win things.

“We’ll see what happens with that but my advice would be: you only get one career, Harry, make sure you make the most of it.”
