Ferdinand says Harry Kane should leave Tottenham in the hunt for trophies

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has said that Harry Kane should part ways with Tottenham Hotspur in the quest to win trophies. The England international has spent his entire career with the north London side and to date, he has bagged 171 goals from 261 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Despite the personal success, he has failed to win any silverware with the Capital outfit and last season’s Champions League final was the closest they had come to end to ending a decade-long wait for a trophy. Speaking on BT Sport, Ferdinand talked up his time with Leeds United and said that he decided to leave the Yorkshire outfit as he wanted the best chance of winning silverware.

He added that Kane has already turned 26 and there is not much time left to pursue a bigger challenge elsewhere, he told: “What are you in the game for?Are you in the game to be a one-club man or to win trophies? Do Spurs look like a team capable of winning trophies? I don’t think so. Leeds is a similar example, I was maybe a year or two younger but I was in a team at a Champions League semi-final, nearly won the league, but I thought I had a better chance elsewhere and I had the opportunity to go. ‘I made a very quick decision to go and win trophies’. Harry Kane is probably thinking about it and having those questions. They need answering soon. He’s 26 and you only have a small window of opportunity.”

Spurs had an impressive ending to the previous campaign as they missed out on the Champions League crown to Liverpool. However, they have not been able to capitalise on the same this term where they have already been knocked out of the League Cup. They are also struggling in the Champions League with just one point from the opening two matches and were recently on the wrong end of a 7-2 drubbing at home to Bayern Munich.
