Robinson makes 'unbelievable' claim about Tottenham star Kane what he's spotted
Paul Robinson has claimed Harry Kane has “not been the same player” since his desire to leave Tottenham was made public.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former White Hart Lane number one said the 27-year-old “is playing with a heavy head” for England at the Euros.
Kane has been widely criticised for his performances in the Euros so far but he offered some encouragement with his display against Czech Republic on Tuesday.
A reported by Sky Sports, Manchester City made a £100million bid for Tottenham’s talisman on the eve of England’s final group game.
Robinson, who is covering the Euros daily for beIN SPORTS, is adamant the speculation surrounding Kane’s future is the cause of his dip in form.

“It looks to me as if he is playing with a heavy head at the moment though. He seems to have a lot on his shoulders…it’s unbelievable.
“We have seen him play care free. We know what he can do when he is bang at it. He is such a talented player.
“This is maybe the first time he has been questioned for not playing as well as we know he can.
“It wasn’t for a lack of effort on Tuesday. It was definitely a step in the right direction.
“Gareth Southgate left him on for the full 90 because he knows a goal would have lifted a burden off his shoulders.
“In all honesty, he has not been the same player since he made it public he wants to leave Spurs. I think he was badly advised in regards to the timing of it all. From then on he has not been the same player.”
