Harry Kane sends message to Daniel Levy about matching Antonio Conte’s ambition

Published: 16:00, 15 March 2022

Harry Kane has urged Daniel Levy to put his financial weight behind Antonio Conte and transform Tottenham Hotspur into a serious trophy-challenging club.

Following a stuttering start to the campaign which culminated in Nuno Espirito Santo’s dismissal in early November and Conte’s quick-fire appointment, the club have continued to be hampered by inconsistencies on the field, with their most recent 3-2 defeat to Manchester United further denting their Champions League aspirations.

Conte’s appointment was seen as a real coup for Tottenham given his trophy-winning credentials and an illustrious CV in the dugout that has seen him take charge of Inter, Juventus and Chelsea among others, but there have been times where the Italian has questioned his own future at the club, saying he is “too honest to close my eyes and continue this way” after losing to Burnley last month.

Kane, who continues to be linked with a move away from Tottenham, has now stressed the importance of heeding Conte’s advice of realising the club’s potential and pushing for silverware, which has eluded the club for nearly 15 years now.

“It’s not a quick fix that happens overnight, it takes time and understanding,” he told Sky Sports.

“Of course he’s mentioned he needs to talk to the club and chairman, and to see what direction we need to go as a club. From my point of view, the players’ point of view, we can’t speak highly enough of him.”

Although Kane’s name continues to be associated with a host of clubs, the England striker has insisted his immediate focus remains on getting Tottenham back in the Champions League.

“Personally, you want to be in the best competitions in the world,” Kane said. “My focus is on this year, getting top four is the most important goal for us now.

“There are 11 games left and if we can get on a run, this is more than possible. That’s all I can control and that’s all the manager can control as well. Let’s see where we end up.”
