Ruud Gullit advised Harry Kane to “be selfish” and leave Tottenham in search of trophies, while Manchester United and Bayern Munich are interested.
Harry Kane misses the trophy once again
The England captain increased his Premier League goal tally this season to 20 with a brace against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, the sixth season he has done so, with only Alan Shearer (seven) having done so more frequently.
However, Spurs have been eliminated from the FA Cup by second-tier Sheffield United and have exited the Champions League at the hands of Milan, ensuring the London club will go another season without a trophy.
Kane has finished runner-up in the EFL Cup twice with Spurs (2014-15 and 2020-21), as well as losing the 2018-19 Champions League final to Liverpool, while Spurs’ last trophy was the EFL Cup in 2007-08.
Harry Kane is advised to leave Tottenham Hotspur for trophies
Gullit believes that if he were in Kane’s position, he would seek an exit and that silverware is the only thing that matters when your career is over.
“If it were me, I would be selfish and say, ‘look, I’m going,'” Gullit, a former player and manager, told BeIN Sports.
“The worst part is that you always have a lot of loyal players, but they never win anything. What are your options? Do you want to collect trophies? Is this true or false?” If you’re not good enough, the club will tell you, “Thank you very much,” right? If the clubs aren’t good enough, I’ll have to go out and try to win trophies.
“I can only speak about myself. I began at a lower-level club and was unable to win anything. So I went to a slightly larger club. I’m grateful for the opportunity to play with Johan Cruyff. ‘Ruud, if you decide to leave, there will be paraphernalia because the fans will not be happy because you are a good player,’ Johan Cruyff told me.
“But you must consider yourself. As a result, I did. I went to PSV Eindhoven, and the fans were not pleased. I received two trophies and then traveled to Milan.
“PSV supporters dislike it, but you want to win trophies. After that, it’s all about what you have on your CV.”
