Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes that Harry Kane and Dele Alli will look to quit Tottenham if they fail to earn any major silverware in the near future.
The England internationals are arguably two of the key driving forces behind Spurs’ rise to the top under the charge of Mauricio Pochettino, but they are yet to earn any kind of team honours despite all their good work.
Kane, 24, has won the golden boot in the last two Premier League seasons while Alli, 21, has been named as the young player of the year with his barnstorming displays in behind the talismanic forward.
But now, Lampard has warned that the two Tottenham players will want to leave North London unless something like a Premier League or FA Cup title comes fast.
“Spurs need to win some silverware. People keep talking about how this is such a great Tottenham team, but they haven’t won anything yet,” he said on the London Evening Standard website.
“It can only get to a certain point before players like Harry Kane and Dele Alli begin looking elsewhere.”
Tottenham have come closer than they’ve ever come to a maiden Premier League in the last two seasons, finishing third in 2015/16 and as runners-up to Lampard’s old club Chelsea last term.
After moving away from White Hart Lane to play their home games at Wembley, it seems unlikely that a league title will come Spurs’ way this season, especially with Manchester City and Manchester United flying high at the top of the table.
The League Cup or FA Cup are perhaps the most likely trophies than Spurs may win this term, although a chance may represent itself in Europe if they finish third in their group again and play in the Europa League.
