Harry Kane needs to stop sulking at Tottenham now he’s working with proven winner Antonio Conte

WHEN will Harry Kane finally stop sulking? 

After trying to fuel his desire for trophies by forcing a move to Manchester City in the summer, the England striker has been chasing shadows for Tottenham this season.

And after enduring Nuno Espirito Santo’s short-lived tenure, Kane arguably now has a manager who can live up to the task of delivering silverware at Spurs. 

Because unlike Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte is a proven winner. 

And unlike Jose Mourinho, the Italian doesn’t have an out of date style of football and is not past his best. 

If he hasn’t already, Kane should get himself on Wikipedia and research what Conte has achieved. 

Because one look will show him the man in the dugout will be capable of getting the best out of him. 

He is the man who sent Juventus on their way to a decade of Serie A titles before also becoming the man to stop them by firing Inter Milan to their first Scudetto in 11 years. 

That is without mentioning the fact he turned a 10th-place Chelsea side into Premier League champions. 

But 28, Kane is letting his best years pass him by sulking on the failed summer move to the Etihad. 

But going off his recent club form, Pep Guardiola will be thinking he dodged a bullet in shelling out over £100million to sign him.

Looking at the top goal scorer charts you have to scroll through names like Ben Chillwell, Teemu Pukki and even Jesse Lingard, who cannot even get a start for a struggling Manchester United side, before you find Kane on one Prem goal. 

And he may just be on that tally for a while as he really did not look like adding to it on Thursday night.

He must have been mumbling the lyrics to Blue Moon wondering how many he would have by now if the likes of Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Kevin De Bruyne were feeding him. 

Because every time a pass was played up to him he was always one or two paces behind the rest of the pack.

Early on in the game he found himself driving forward as runs from Son and Lucas Moura opened up Brentford’s defence. 

The old Kane would have fancied his chances and sent one of his iconic dipping shots at goal but instead, he pushed the ball out to Moura. 

But like any world class player he can show flashes of his brilliance which can be enough to change the game. 

It was his ball which cut open Brentford on the counter attack which allowed Son to tap into an empty net for the second. 

But make no mistake, this is a completely different Kane to the one who took home the golden boot for both goals and assists last season. 

And if he does not shake off this sulk anytime soon, Conte will be brave enough to drop him if his mind is elsewhere. 

You only have to look at his spat with Diego Costa during his final year at Chelsea to see the Italian does not have time for players who do not want to be at the club. 


After disrupting their title-winning season by demanding a move to China, Conte dropped the Spanish striker at the start of the next season before he moved back to Atletico Madrid. 

It is clear Kane has not lost his desire as he managed to score FOUR against San Marino for England last month as he chases the all-time scoring record. 

But if he does not buck up his ideas in a Spurs shirt soon, no club will want him and he will be left staring at an empty trophy cabinet when his playing days are over.
