Paul Merson says Harry Kane needs to have a serious think over his Tottenham Hotspur future. There has been plenty of speculation over his future recently following Spurs’ underachievement in the Premier League and Europe this season. Merson feels that manager Jose Mourinho’s style of football does not suit Kane and, if he wants to continue performing at his best, he should look to play his future elsewhere.
Paul Merson said “When Jose took the job I worried for Harry Kane. He played under Mauricio Pochettino and they had a go wherever they went. There were goals, crosses and shots. He’s going to be playing up front on his own and it’s going to be hard work. In the end he’s trying to hit 60-yard passes just to get involved in the game and that’s not Harry Kane. He’s definitely not fit, they were playing virtually with 10 men, I can’t remember how many times he touched the ball in the whole game. I think he’ll have a serious think at the end of the season, I don’t see him getting 25 or 30 goals next season the way Jose will want to play. He won’t want to play like he did when he first got in there, where it was 4-2s and 5-3s, no way. He’ll like games like 1-1.”
