Harry Kane: ‘Despondent’ Tottenham star will face questions after Chelsea FC loss, says Gary Neville

Harry Kane: ‘Despondent’ Tottenham star will face questions after Chelsea FC loss, says Gary Neville



ary Neville says questions will be asked of Harry Kane following his performance in Tottenham‘s defeat to London rivals Chelsea and believes the England captain looked “despondent” on Sunday.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel revealed last week that discussions had been held over the possibility of bringing Kane to Stamford Bridge, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy would not budge on interest from any suitors.

The 28-year-old is yet to score in the Premier League this season and cut a frustrated figure, playing deeper and wider than usual as Spurs fell to the Blues on Sunday.

“It’s never easy when a player wants to leave your club, and everybody in the dressing room in the ground knows that he wants to leave,” Neville said on his Sky Sports podcast.


“I think that there will be some questions coming out of that game because he looked despondent towards the end.

“He was playing against a very, very good team. He will have been part of a Tottenham team over the years where Chelsea have a good record and he will be thinking, ‘I’m here again, playing at Tottenham. We’re not going to challenge for titles or get into the top four’.

“He wanted more, he wanted to go and challenge for titles. This Chelsea team will challenge for titles.”

Neville’s criticism followed on from his former Manchester United team-mate Roy Keane hitting out at Kane for his attitude, suggesting that Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo would have been better to haul last season’s top goalscorer off early against Chelsea.

“Kane’s body language today, his performance today Kane – oh my goodness,” said Keane in his role as a pundit on Sky.

“The manager should’ve dragged him off. He should’ve dragged him off.”
