It would be a ‘tragedy’ if Harry Kane never wins a trophy as ex-Tottenham star Gary Stevens says striker has no reason to stay at Spurs

It would be a ‘tragedy’ if Harry Kane never wins a trophy during his career, according to former Tottenham star Gary Stevens.

The England captain, 27, is yet to win silverware, despite scoring scoring 221 goals for Spurs.

Kane is looking to leave Tottenham this summer amid interest from Manchester United, Man City and Chelsea.

And Stevens, who played for Tottenham for seven years from 1983 and won the UEFA Cup, admits the forward is unlikely to lift trophies in north London.

He told talkSPORT 2: “It would be a tragedy if one of England’s finest ever strikers, arguably the best ever striker they’ve had, never wins a club trophy.

“Is Harry Kane going to win trophies at Spurs? I would love him to do that. It’s odds against, let’s be brutally frank with you.

“The current owners, ENIC, have done some fantastic things, look at the stadium, look at the training facilities, they have invested money.

“They’ve also made a huge amount of money, they now own one of the wealthiest clubs in the world, congratulations to them.

“But in 21 years, they’ve managed to win one domestic trophy. The owners at Leicester City have owned Leicester City for 11 years, they’ve won the Premier League and an FA Cup.”

Stevens is adamant it ‘isn’t right’ that Leicester’s Jamie Vardy has won more trophies than Kane.

He added: “At the end of Harry Kane’s career, if he stays at Tottenham, he says, ‘I won nothing with my club’.

“Jamie Vardy, who with Leicester City has won the Premier League and the FA Cup… no disrespect to Jamie Vardy, I love the player, what an excellent player, but is Jamie Vardy as good as Harry Kane? Absolutely not.

“But Jamie Vardy has won more trophies at club level than Harry Kane. That cannot be right, surely?”

Tottenham look set to play another season without Champions League football with Ryan Mason’s side five points below fourth-placed Chelsea with two games remaining.

And with Spurs’ trophy drought stretching to 13 years, Stevens believes there is no reason for Kane to stay.

He said: “We touched on this a few weeks ago, at the time Spurs had just got knocked out of the FA Cup, but they had the League Cup final and they were still in the Europa League.

“Jose Mourinho was still the head coach, a proven winner of trophies at club level.

“I said we’d have to wait and see how this season pans out because it was possible Harry Kane could have a League Cup winners’ medal, he could have a Europa League winners’ medal and he could have qualified for the Champions League for next season.

“Two of those are definitely gone and qualifying for the Champions League has gone as well.”
