The tides have turned at Tottenham Hotspur with the appointment of the new manager, Antonio Conte. Despite having unsatisfactory finishes in recent seasons, the fans would hope that Conte would turn the fortunes around for the famous club. Moreover, this move could be important for the club to keep their coveted striker, Harry Kane.

Harry Kane opens up on his transfer saga

With the striker bidding goodbye to the fans last season, everyone expected him to don the blue and white of Manchester City. But, the saga went to a length where the move did not materialize while many people roundly criticized his brother for the breakdown in talks. Kane talked about the issues he faced but looked happy with his conduct and how he handled the situation.

“That is the first time it has really happened to me. But that is part and parcel of being a big player, and I think I coped with it well,” said Kane.

With City looking for a potential replacement for Aguero, Kane was on Pep’s list. However, it got reported that mismanagement of his move caused the deal to collapse. Hence, he remains a Spurs player and looks committed to winning trophies with the club. With Conte’s arrival, Kane will certainly feel that his first trophy with the club is near.

Although he has only scored one goal in 10 appearances for Spurs this season, his record for England remains solid. He scored three goals in four games, with England on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar now. Four points out of two games against Albania and San Marino would guarantee automatic qualification for the World Cup. However, the striker remains focused on the job in front of him.

“We expect a really tough game. Albania still has the chance to qualify for the World Cup and we know they’ll bring a lot of energy and passion to the game so we need to make sure we match that,” said Kane.

Thus, with a new regime in North London, Kane would hope to win trophies. Conte is a serial winner and would train the team to his demands. With many talented players in the squad, Kane looks set to stay in Spurs. But if the team fails to win a trophy yet again, how long do you think he will stay at Tottenham?
