Campbell blasts Levy for what he has done to Kane at Tottenham after latest statement
Kevin Campbell has slammed Tottenham chief Daniel Levy after he tried to paint Harry Kane as a “villain”.
The Arsenal icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted to the latest on Kane’s future.
On Friday (6th August) Kane shared a statement on social media in which he claimed he has never refused to train following reports that he was on strike.
The England captain insists he was only due back at Tottenham at this weekend, not on Monday.
Kane, 28, was subject to a £100million bid from Man City earlier this summer.
That came after this site revealed he is “hell-bent” on leaving Spurs.

Campbell insists Levy is trying to make Kane the villain of this story even though both men supposedly had an agreement regarding Kane’s future.
“I don’t think Kane’s been poorly advised,” Campbell told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs.
“What’s happened, is Kane and Levy have had a conversation.
“People keep asking me about gentlemen’s agreements and all that stuff, this was always going to come back and bite Levy.
“I don’t know why clubs do it, all of a sudden they are going to make Kane look like the villain.
“At the end of the day, there was an agreement. Kane won’t come out and say exactly what was agreed.
“His actions speak much louder than words. Just get the deal done.”
Kane was given extra time off this summer after helping England reach the final of Euro 2020.
The Three Lions’ shootout loss to Italy means Kane is still yet to win a trophy during his career.
