Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane had a ‘honest chat’ with chairman Daniel Levy.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane stated on Monday that he had a “honest conversation” with chairman Daniel Levy to try to save the club’s season.
Kane and several top Spurs players met with Levy just 24 hours after their 6-1 defeat at Newcastle.
Later that day, interim manager Cristian Stellini was fired and replaced by first-team coach Ryan Mason.
“I think it was important [for Levy] to understand where the players’ heads were at that moment,” Kane stated.
“It was an honest conversation about where everyone is and what we need to try to do to give us the best possible chance of finishing the season with something.”
Kane went on to say that the Newcastle outcome had been “building up” since Tottenham conceded two late goals in a 3-3 draw with Southampton last month, which led to the departure of previous manager Antonio Conte.
In Mason’s first game back in command, the north London team came back from a 2-0 deficit to draw 2-2 with Manchester United on Thursday, staying fifth in the rankings, six points outside the top four.
“We’re still fighting for fourth place, but if it’s not fourth, we’ll try to finish fifth or sixth – as high up as we can,” Kane explained.
“In this league, it’s so competitive that if you’re not careful, you can easily end up eighth or ninth.” That’s what it was all about – giving us the best chance possible, and I’m delighted we reacted in that way.”
Despite Manchester United fans singing “see him in June” during Thursday’s match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Kane refused to comment on speculation about his future.
Kane, who was a target for Manchester City in 2021, is nearing the end of his Spurs deal and has been linked with a summer move to Old Trafford.
