Paul Robinson is adamant Harry Kane would have “special” status at any club despite Jose Mourinho’s comments on the Tottenham striker.
The former White Hart Lane number one, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, claimed that the price the England captain would command would make him a “figurehead” at any club.
Kane, who turns 27 next week, grabbed his second brace of the week as Spurs beat Leicester City 3-0 on Sunday.
In his post-match interview Mourinho said that Kane “wouldn’t be so special playing for another team” in response to the continued speculation about the striker’s future.
Robinson believes that Mourinho is the right manager to get the best out of the Englishman.
“The price tag that Harry Kane would demand would immediately give him “special” status at any club,” he told Football Insider.
“He is going to command a fee over £100million. You are not going to pay that much for a player if they are not going to be the figurehead and central to the club.
“The word special is used quite often around Jose Mourinho but I genuinely feel that he can get the best out of Harry Kane.”
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “I think everyone thinks he’s a fantastic player and Tottenham is so lucky to have him because he’s the player, the person and the Tottenham boy.
“All this together makes him really a special player for us that probably wouldn’t be so special playing for another team. He’s really special for us, he’s really special for Tottenham.”
