Tottenham told they will be relegation contenders if Harry Kane leaves this summer
| Last updated
Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O’Hara has claimed that if Harry Kane decides to leave the club in the near future, the North London team could face a relegation battle next season.
“Well look, obviously we all hope that he sticks around and signs a new contract," he said.
“Because Lara, without Harry Kane, I seriously think we could be fighting relegation next season.”
The brutal answer shocked Woods, which prompted the 36-year-old to further explain his point.
He stated: “We are that bad without him. We have been solely dependent on Harry Kane to score us goals and do stuff for us.
“And I think the lack of ambition that we’ve shown and the players that we’ve signed that haven’t been good enough, if he leaves, we are in big, big, trouble.
“And I feel like he’s got to leave, why would he stay,” the ex-footballer ploughed on. “The guy wants to win something, the guy deserves to win trophies. I just don’t see that changing next season.”
Doubling down on his line of thinking, O’Hara then said if the 29-year-old striker does decide to pen a new contract with the team, then he potentially “lacks ambition.”
“And he doesn’t go to - let’s say Manchester United - then I think he lacks ambition.”
Kane completed the majority of his youth career at Spurs and has been part of the senior squad since 2009.
However, after years of service, the England captain has just a single season left on his six-year contract.
If Kane decides not to sign on for another Premier League season, then he will depart as a free agent next summer.
