Danny Mills says that Harry Kane’s comments after Tottenham’s draw against Olympiacos are a worry for the north Londoners and questions whether cracks are starting to appear in the squad.
The former Leeds and England full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, insists that the striker’s quotes are not what he would expect from one of the most important and senior members of the Lilywhites’ squad.
Speaking after the 2-2 draw with the Greek giants, Kane said that the Spurs players are “still making similar mistakes” to ones that were being made during Mauricio Pochettino’s first year in north London six years ago.
Mills admits that the striker’s comments are a worry and that they suggest all is not well among the first-team at Tottenham this season.
Mills told Football Insider: “It’s a worry when your (vice) captain comes out and says that as well, it’s going against the grain a little bit, not really your standard captain’s statement.
“You’d expect him to back the players no matter what, so you just do start to wonder are there one or two cracks appearing in the side, in the squad?”
Spurs were unable to bounce back from their disappointment in Europe against Leicester City on Saturday afternoon, the Foxes coming back from 1-0 down to seal a 2-1 victory against the north Londoners at home.
The Lilywhites, who also let a two-goal lead slip against Arsenal in the north London derby, return to league action against Southampton next weekend after a League Cup tie versus Colchester in midweek.
