Hutton: Kane to question Tottenham future after 'Frightening' sight v Man City
Harry Kane is going to start questioning his future at Tottenham if things do not improve dramatically under Jose Mourinho.
That is the view of former Spurs and Scotland defender Alan Hutton who, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, admitted it was “frightening” how ineffective the 27-year-old was in Sunday’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City
As detailed by football data experts Wyscout, Kane did not manage a single touch in the box against Pep Guardiola’s men, while neither of his two shots were on target.
Hutton insisted something needs to change for Spurs to get back to their best and suggested Kane could find himself wondering whether to stay in north London if things do not improve.
“Harry Kane is going to start saying: ‘Well is this the place I need to be at?'” Hutton told Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge.

“He’s going to want to win things, he’s one of the best strikers in European football, in world football.
“I don’t even think he touched the ball in the box the other day against Manchester City. That’s frightening, that’s a scary thought.
“Something needs to change whether it be formation-wise, players, whatever, but it’s not going great at the moment.”
Kane has netted 13 goals in 21 Premier League appearances so far this term, although only two of those have come in Spurs’ seven games against Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Leicester City or Chelsea.
His current contract at Spurs, which was signed back in June 2018, is set to run until the summer of 2024.
