Graham Roberts has told Football FanCast that Harry Kane’s body language suggested he could want out of the club during the Carabao Cup final, amid reports that he has asked to leave this summer.
Sky Sports reported on Monday night that the England captain is seeking a way out of the club this summer after growing frustrated with a lack of progress towards winning major trophies.
Spurs are currently sixth in the Premier League, five points off the top four with two games to play, and they are not even guaranteed a place in the Europa League.
It is perhaps understandable, then, that Kane is keen to move to a club who can win the biggest honours, and Roberts believes that his body language was telling during the Carabao Cup final.
Spurs lost that game to Manchester City 1-0, and barely even troubled opposition goalkeeper Zack Steffen, to the chagrin of the Spurs icon.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, Roberts said: “I thought, alright, Man City were brilliant but we made them look brilliant.
“I didn’t think we got amongst them, we played to exactly how they wanted to play and I think Harry, looking at his body language, he wasn’t a happy man.”
Roberts also believes that Spurs have to do everything they can to ensure that Kane does not leave, amid links with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, and, unthinkably, Chelsea.
He added: “We’ve got to do everything in our power to keep him at our football club, because if he leaves we’re going to be in dire straits.”
