Kane 'tarnishing his legacy' at Tottenham after latest from Sky on Man City move - Robinson

Harry Kane is “tarnishing his legacy” at Tottenham by trying to force through a move to Manchester City, according to Paul Robinson.

The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider is “shocked” by the 27-year-old’s ill-advised actions this week.

Kane was expected back at Spurs this week but failed to show up for training on Monday or Tuesday.

Sky Sports‘ Paul Gilmour reported on August 3rd that the club were ‘disappointed’ in their striker and will fine him as a result of his actions.

According to Fabrizio Romano (August 3rd), the England captain will return at the end of this week.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of the latest, Robinson said: “I’m shocked.

“I did not think he was that type of character but we are not privy to private conversations which have gone on.

“He has had a long summer with the Euros and it has been an intense season for him.

“He said he wanted his future sorted out before the Euros but that was never going to happen.

“I am just surprised by the manner in which he has conducted himself over the last few days. Whether it was his decision or whether he has been badly advised, it doesn’t look good.

“If this transfer is going to happen he needs to be fit and the only way to do that is to be training in pre-season. Yes, he needs a rest but he does not want to get left behind. I cannot understand the reasons why he would not want to go in.

“If he knows the transfer is pending an imminent, why would you do it?

“It is clearly a stance against the club. He is tarnishing his legacy because he is every Spurs fan’s favourite player.”
