Nuno gives backing to Kane amid stuttering start to new season

Jamie Redknapp has unleashed a rant on Daniel Levy about his decision not to sell star striker Harry Kane this summer.

Following Tottenham‘s 3-2 victory over Newcastle, Redknapp honed in on the Tottenham chairman’s decision not to cash in on Kane, and questioned his judgement by claiming he is “not good enough”.

It looked inevitable that Kane would leave Tottenham this summer, and Manchester City tabled an opening £100million bid towards the start of the summer, but the England captain stayed put despite saying he had a gentleman’s agreement with Levy to leave the club.

Kane finally scored his first Premier League goal of the season for Tottenham after a slow start following the summer’s antics, and Redknapp tore into Levy on Sky Sports.

Redknapp was shocked that Kane wasn’t sold despite the Spurs chairman’s recent history of selling big stars.

“I found that surprising this summer because every other time they’ve had a real asset, you think Modric, Bale, Carrick, Daniel Levy has decided to sell, took the money,” he told Sky Sports.

“The one time that they get an incredible amount of money, great offer to a player who obviously wants to leave, I think there was a verbal agreement £130million, they decide to say no.

“I didn’t understand that, it didn’t make any sense to me and I know you’ve got to keep your best players but I think they could’ve invested again.”

Redknapp was then asked if selling Kane would’ve helped move Tottenham on as a team, and he said: “I think when you’ve got a player that wants to leave that doesn’t want to be at your club, it helps.

“Did you say that they’re doing a rebuild? I mean, how many rebuilds has Daniel had? I mean I’ve lost count. Great stadium, great training ground, but they haven’t won under his tenure-ship, it’s not good enough.

“Anybody else, any other chairman would’ve been voted out or left. There’s been some successes, but in terms of recruitment and getting things right on the pitch, he’s not done well enough.”

The former Tottenham midfielder then questioned Levy’s decision to bring in a director of football due to knowing “how Daniel works”, as he appeared worried about the near future.

Redknapp said: “They’ve got a director of football in now which is going to be interesting because knowing how Daniel works, he listens to the last person he spoke to.

“I’m not too sure this director of football will have ability or even be given the opportunity to bring as many players as what he’d like and I still think Daniel will decide the players that come in, and that isn’t always healthy.”

Kane’s goal was his first in 540 minutes of Premier League football, and all eyes will be on the upcoming transfer windows to see where the Englishman’s future lies.
