Mauricio Pochettino has talked up Harry Kane’s chances of spending his entire career at Tottenham.
Kane, who is reportedly being targeted by Real Madrid, scored twice in Tottenham’s 3-0 FA Cup victory over AFC Wimbledon at Wembley on Sunday.
After the game, Pochettino told reporters Spurs must manage their talisman in the right way.
“I told him only a few special players can spend all their career in one club,” said Pochettino. (Quotes via the BBC.)
“I think Harry is this type of a player who can stay all his career at Tottenham because he loves Tottenham and has always been at Tottenham, but in football you cannot be sure.
“We need to be clever how we manage him. The player needs to choose to stay here, you cannot force the player to stay here. Our job is to try to work together and try to achieve everything we want at the club.”
It sort of goes with out saying, but I think Kane’s future will depend on the club’s capacity to stay in the top four and challenge for trophies on a consistent basis.
