Harry Kane insists money has little to do with the gap between Manchester City and Tottenham this season.

Speaking to ESPN Brasil, the striker was asked if City’s spending has made it more difficult for Spurs to challenge Pep Guardiola’s side.

“I don’t think so,” he said. “This year, City have deserved it. They’ve been the best team. But they spent similarly last year and it was us up there fighting with Chelsea [for the league title]. I don’t think it’s down to the money but it helps from a squad point of view.

“From our point of view, it’s been a good season. We’d have liked to have done better of course but City have run away with it so far. We have to focus on ourselves but we’ve changed stadium which has had a big impact on everything.

“We can’t get too down about how our season’s been so far. We’re still in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

“We’ve just got to focus on that and look forward to next year in the new stadium. It’s going to be amazing. The way it’s been designed, the atmosphere will be great. The crowd will be right on top of the pitch. Being brand new and creating that atmosphere will make it tough for teams to come and play there.”

What do you think? Would Spurs be closer to City if both clubs had similar funds? Let us know in the comments.



  1. Rather strange comment from Harry about playing in Spurs new amazing stadium next season as according to many reports his move to RM this coming summer is a “done deal”.

    • According to “many reports” the earth is flat and we’re all being controlled by the illuminati. Don’t trust everything you read.

  2. Harry Kane is the personification of hard work, quiet intent and good sense. That he is all that and combines it with a team awareness and club loyalty, makes him as positive a role model as you’ll find in modern football. It brings the best out of others, and provides a contrast to those who think and behave so differently. He’s not unique, though, and as well as some others who have been like that there are others too who will aim high.
