Harry Kane has made it clear that he is happy at Tottenham and has no plans to leave, adding that he is looking forward to watching how the team advances under Antonio Conte next season.
Kane wanted to leave Tottenham for Manchester City last summer, but has been more comfortable since Conte’s hiring in November and wants to see the manager supported in the transfer window.
The England captain is also out of alternatives, with City having already signed Erling Haaland and Manchester United, his other rumoured suitor, preparing for a rebuild under new head coach Erik ten Hag.
Spurs piled pressure on rivals Arsenal in the fight for fourth place with a 1-0 win over Burnley yesterday, leaving the Gunners requiring a win at Newcastle tonight to have Champions League football in their hands on the final day.
Conte has constantly refused to commit to Spurs beyond the end of the season, but Kane believes it would be beneficial to the club if he stayed.
“A lot of work has to be done,” Kane told Standard Sport. “I believe the progress has obviously been there when the gaffer came in to where we are today.” It demonstrates that it can be done in a short period of time, but we will have to wait and see what happens during the summer before looking forward to the next season with wonderful management. We’ve hopefully learned a lot since he’s been here.
“To be honest, I have no clue [about Conte’s future]. It is his decision, “Kaine continued. “But he’s worked incredibly hard while he’s been here. He’s a terrific guy, a genuinely passionate man, and you have to accept his decision. ” But I know I’m having fun, and I know the lads are having fun working with him.
As I’ve said, I’m a huge admirer of his, and we get along pretty well, so it would be wonderful for the club if he stayed. But, as I previously stated, that is his decision; he is his own man, and I’m confident he will speak with the club and make a decision about his future. From our perspective, we are all having a good time working with him.
“We had some good periods with Jose [Mourinho]. We were at the top of the league for the first few months of the season. We had spells when we were extremely good, but it is about achieving it consistently throughout the course of a season, not just in the Premier League. That is where we must develop and learn, and the previous few months have undoubtedly been a significant improvement. “
