Ex-Spurs Darren Bent on Kane: “If they go again this season and don’t win anything, as well as he is playing, what does he do?””
Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent thinks the club needs to win big trophies to keep Harry Kane.
The England skipper is at the peak of his powers, and Bent thinks he is doing a disservice to himself if he stays at Spurs for minor trophies.
The club will try to win the Carabao Cup this season, but Bent is unsure whether that is enough to keep a star like Kane.
“At the minute I think this is the best we have seen Harry Kane play, in terms of his whole all-round game and impact on the game,” former Tottenham striker Bent told talkSPORT.
“We have seen that he can score so many different goals, we understand that, but if you look at the assists he is making and dropping into midfield, creating chances for other people and doing defensive work as well.
“At the minute he is a complete package but I do fear for Spurs a little bit.
“If they go again this season and don’t win anything, as well as he is playing, what does he do? Does he stay there again for the sake of it because he loves the club or does he go onto another level?
“Someone of that quality, he needs to be playing in the Champions League.
“I’d probably give it one more year and see what happens.
“If he goes and wins a League Cup, is that going to be enough for him to go ‘right, I like what Spurs are doing and I’ll stay’? No.”
