NEVILLE ON KANE
Manchester United legend Gary Neville has weighed in on the Harry Kane-Tottenham situation.
He told Sky Sports News: “If Harry Kane was meant to report to pre-season training with Tottenham on Monday, then he should’ve come back. You can never advocate any player not turning up for training – it’s as simple as that.
“You’ve got to turn up and you’ve got to do your job. However, I’ve worked with Harry and I can’t think of a more professional footballer that I’ve ever seen.
“He does everything right, so he must be seriously annoyed. Something has happened badly that has made him do that.
“It still doesn’t excuse it for me. He should still have come into training, and you respect your team-mates. You still have to go and stand with them and sit in the dressing-room, but it’s clear now that there’s a collision course.
“They were on collision course already at the end of last season when Harry clearly felt something was happening and he’s taken Daniel Levy on.
“Not many do it, and not many come out the other side, but it’ll be interesting to see which clubs are involved.
“It looks like Manchester City, and they’ve clearly made a bid that’s not enough for Spurs.
“Harry thinks it is enough while Daniel doesn’t think it is. Hopefully they can come to a compromise but whether they do remains to be seen.”
