Tim Sherwood tells Jose Mourinho when Harry Kane will leave Tottenham

Harry Kane will look to leave Tottenham at the end of next season if they end their long wait to win a trophy, according to former manager Tim Sherwood.

An eventful week at Spurs saw Mauricio Pochettino fired and replaced less than 12 hours later by Jose Mourinho, who has since won his first two games in charge.

The Portuguese, back in the game after 11 months out, then led his new club to a 3-2 win at West Ham on Saturday lunchtime – their first Premier League away win since January 20 – before an eventful 4-2 win over Olympiacos on Tuesday evening secured Champions League qualification for the last 16.

Mourinho himself has lifted the lid on the half-time message he gave to his players and also why he was forced into an apology to Eric Dier.

Kane was at the double in Tuesday’s victory, while he was also on the scoresheet against the Hammers on Saturday, taking his tally to three goals in two games under the Portuguese manager.

And while speaking to Kane and getting the Tottenham talisman onside was one of the first things Mourinho did upon his appointment, Sherwood believes he could still look to leave by summer 2021 if the club don’t lift a trophy this season.

“[Kane] needs to win something,” Sherwood told BeIN SPORTS.

“So I think he’ll give it a period of time, certainly next season.

“The end of this season and next season and see if they can get closer to winning something.

“And if they don’t, then he will leave.”


Spurs finished fourth last season and more significantly reached the Champions League final before suffering final heartache at the hands of Liverpool.

But Sherwood believes money doesn’t motivate Kane and he’ll want to look back on the number of trophies he’s won at the end of his career.

“All professional footballers are now going to be rich when they finish no matter who they are, even bad ones,” Sherwood said. “They are all going to be millionaires, that is the way it is.

“But you want trophies, you want to say what you have won at the end of it.”
