Tottenham Hotspur are not happy that the club’s talisman, Harry Kane failed to show up for training on Monday and Tuesday. Hence, they are reportedly set to fine him for snubbing the club’s training.
The 28-year-old center-forward was allowed to enjoy an extra break after representing England in the just concluded Euro 2020. He led England to the final of the European Championship on July 11 which his country lost to Italy via penalties.
Since then, the English striker has been enjoying his holiday which ought to expire last weekend. But as he promised not to return to the club for pre-season training in an attempt to force his exit from the club, he did not show up for training on Monday. And did not also show up on Tuesday, August 3, 2021.
His decision to stay away from Tottenham Hotspur stadium for two successive days is a follow-up to his desire to leave the club which he has made public in May 2021.
Harry Kane on the same position again today morning. He’s not showing up for Tottenham training as he wants to leave the club this summer – tense situation with Spurs board. ⚪️ #THFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 3, 2021
Recall that Harry Kane has said he wanted to move to a more ambitious club before Euro 2020 kicked off on June 11 and Manchester City have made a £100 million bid for his services which Tottenham rejected.
From all indications, Henry Kane and his childhood club are no longer on the same page as the world-class striker is determined not to play in the new Europa Conference League which is the continent’s third-tier league.
But his decision to be absent from the club’s training is seen as a disappointment to the Premier League club who have started their preparation for the coming 2021-2022 season.
Reports from Tottenham Hotspur claimed that everyone at the club was disappointed with Harry Kane’s decision to stay away from the club’s training, including the club’s new coach Nuno Espírito Santo.
It is believed that aside from the fact that Harry Kane has three seasons left on his contract with Tottenham Hotspur, the English striker has a gentlemen agreement with the club’s chief executive officer, Daniel Levy.
The agreement is said to be centered around Kane who is the club’s captain to be patient with the club, an attribute that Kane no longer has as far as his desire to leave Spurs this season is concerned.
With the way Kane’s relationship with Tottenham Hotspur is going, if any club is ready to pay up to £120 million, the club might have no choice but to let him go.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur will kick off their Europa Conference League campaign at the play-offs round.
The Premier League club will play against Pacos de Ferreira or Larne in the playoffs on August 19 and 26, 2021. If they win the 2-legged game, they will qualify for the group stage of the competition.
The draws for the group stage will take place on August 26 while the group stage will kick off on September 16, 2021.
