Kane welcomed like a 'hero' by teammates on return to Tottenham training - Kenny
There will have been no bad blood between Tottenham “hero” Harry Kane and his teammates when he returned to training on Tuesday.
So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the latest developments in the Kane transfer saga.
He, along with the starting XI that beat Man City 1-0 last Sunday, did not travel for Thursday’s Europa Conference League defeat to Pacos De Fereira.
But The Athletic reported on 17 August that the wantaway centre-forward had that morning returned to training for the first time this season.
Kane was scheduled to report for training at the start of August but blamed a miscommunication for his failure to do so.
But Kenny does not believe there will be any resentment in the Spurs dressing room towards the 28-year-old as a result.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “I think they will understand the situation and he’ll get quite a warm welcome.
“I’ve been in squads where there are players who don’t want to be there but you just get on with it.
“At the end of the day, he has been a hero for that club. I’m sure the lads there will all be unbelievable with him.
“They will all know the situation and I think he will get a good reception when he returns.”
Kane has another three years remaining on his Spurs contract.
He could be available for Sunday’s clash against Nuno Espirot Sant’s former side Wolves.
