Berbatov: Kane must leave Spurs


Former Tottenham striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Harry Kane will have to leave the club if he wants to win trophies.

The Bulgarian, who secured a £30m deadline day move to Manchester United where he won two Premier League titles and a League Cup medal during a four-year stay, believes that the England captain may ultimately have to ply his trade elsewhere if he wants to end his career with medals in his cabinet.

Tottenham have failed to win a trophy for eleven years and finished 27 points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season. 

“Someone needs to ask Harry Kane about what he will do if Spurs don't win a trophy this season,” Berbatov said.

“Coming from that point of view, and I've been in those shoes, the moment comes when you play for a team for a while and you don't win anything. 

“At the same time you see other colleagues that you are playing with in the national team, and they are winning trophies.

“You get jealous, in a good way. You're like 'I want to be part of that'.

“You start asking all these questions and at one moment nothing changes, you change the environment, you change the club.”
