Peter Crouch urges Harry Kane to resist Real Madrid temptation and cement Tottenham legacy as he tells star striker ‘the grass isn’t always greener’
- Harry Kane has often been linked with a move to Spain in search of trophies
- The 27-year-old has yet to win anything at Tottenham despite goalscoring record
- Peter Crouch believes success at Spurs will mean more to Kane than elsewhere
- He has warned England’s star man that the grass ‘isn’t always greener’
Peter Crouch has warned Harry Kane that leaving north London in search of trophies may not be the sensible move.
Tottenham’s main man has regularly been linked with Real Madrid, among other clubs, in the past, a natural consequence of his outstanding record for both club and country over recent seasons.
However, the former Spurs striker believes that Kane would be wise to stay where he is and cement his legacy, suggesting that success abroad may not bring the same satisfaction.
Harry Kane has yet to win a trophy at Tottenham, losing in the 2019 Champions League final
But Peter Crouch has urged the 27-year-old to stay in north London and fire Spurs to success
‘I think if you win something at Tottenham, it is going to mean 10 times more than going to Real Madrid and winning something,’ Crouch told the Daily Star.
‘Sometimes the grass isn’t always greener. He’s a top player and he deserves the best so nobody can begrudge him anything if he wants to move.
‘But I just feel like if he thinks there’s a chance of winning something at Tottenham, I think it would mean far more to him than if he went somewhere and perhaps won a league title in a different country.
‘Whereas at Tottenham, if he finishes there or he manages to win something there, they’ll have a statue built for him, wouldn’t they?’
The BT pundit warned Kane that a move away from Tottenham may not satisfy the striker
Kane has been in sparkling form for Tottenham this season, scoring 12 goals and providing 11 assists in just 18 Premier League matches.
And Crouch, who was at the club when Kane was first started to break into the first team in training, has nothing but glowing praise for the England captain.
‘I wouldn’t say he burst on the scene and we all went “wow” but he always used to score in every game in training,’ he said.
‘There was definitely something about him. The way he has worked on his game and improved it, he’s like a manager’s dream. Any sort of young player should look up to someone like him.’
