Harry Kane may end up leaving Tottenham because he has not been at the club from the very start of his career, says Steven Gerrard, who has compared his quandary over staying at Liverpool to the England captain at Spurs.
Kane scored his 55th England goal on Sunday as the Three Lions eased to a 2-0 win over Ukraine and kept up their perfect start to Euro 2024 qualifying.
Once again, the striker’s future will be a huge talking point this summer as he considers whether to push for a move from Tottenham as he pursues silverware or stay at the club where he has become the record scorer.
Gerrard recalls having a similar dilemma at Liverpool, considering moves in his prime to have a better chance of trophies, most notably the possibility of a switch to Chelsea.
He stayed at Anfield, but says this was down to the strongest of links to the club, which he doesn’t reckon Kane has at Tottenham.
The 29-year-old had brief spells at Arsenal and Watford as a schoolboy before Tottenham snapped him up as an 11-year-old, and Gerrard reckons that could be enough to see him move on.
‘I don’t want to open a can of worms but he’s got a big decision to make, career-wise,’ Gerrard said on Channel 4.
‘I’ve been there myself, thinking, is my team good enough to get me the medals? Am I going to get out of my career what I want to get?
‘It was different for me because I grew up as a Liverpool fan, from the city, all my family were Liverpool. I knew that one trophy with Liverpool would have meant a lot more to me than being anywhere else.
‘But he’s not from Tottenham, not been through Tottenham all the time, he’s got a big decision to make.
‘I can’t give him any advice on that, but I bet every single day of his life moving forwards it’s going to be on his mind.’
