Kane still 'unhappy' behind the scenes at Tottenham after what I've seen - pundit

Alan Hutton has claimed Tottenham are still having to deal with an “unhappy” Harry Kane after a disappointing start to the season.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs defender suggested the 28-year-old is frustrated both on and off the pitch in north London.

Kane remained at Tottenham this summer despite, as revealed by Football Insider, being “hell bent” on leaving.

He has returned to the starting XI under Nuno Espirito Santo and started every significant match subsequently but has failed to hit the ground running.

The England hitman is yet to score in five Premier League appearances.

However, he has netted in both the Europa Conference League and the League Cup.

After watching Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Arsenal, Hutton admitted Kane does not look himself at the moment.

He suggested the striker needs to sort his head out to get back to his best.

Hutton told Football Insider deputy editor Russell Edge: “It’s difficult. He still looks unhappy to me, shall we say.

“For him, the plan moving forward, how they’re trying to play, he’s dropping deep sometimes because he looks frustrated.

“I think he had his first shot from about 45 yards and it just looked like a frustrated shot. It was never going to go anywhere near the goal.

“You have to look and there’s not much supply into him. He’s a striker, a central striker. How many times did somebody work the ball wide and get it into his feet within the box? Not very many.

“He’s really struggled, he was better in the second half. I thought he looked up for it.

“I know he was at fault for one of the goals, possibly, but he worked hard. He showed that desire to get back and try get a block in.

“It’s really difficult for him because in his mind, he probably thought in the summer, he was definitely away.

“He needs to get that out of his head now. He needs to focus and concentrate on the job at hand and that’s Tottenham.”
