"The chairman asked..." - Harry Kane reveals details of crisis meeting with Daniel Levy amid Man Utd rumours

"The chairman asked..." - Harry Kane reveals details of crisis meeting with Daniel Levy amid Man Utd rumours

Harry Kane was involved in a crisis meeting.

Tottenham star Harry Kane has revealed details of a crisis meeting with chairman Daniel Levy prior to the side's 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

In their previous game, Spurs went 5-0 down inside 20 minutes to Newcastle at St James' Park, with interim boss Cristian Stellini having reverted back to a four-man defence instead of the traditional five-man backline.

The switch had disastrous results, and the Italian substituted midfielder Pape Matar Sarr for defender Davinson Sanchez shortly after the fifth goal had gone.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was criticised for several of the goals, before being taken off at half-time due to injury. He was not in the squad to face United.

In the second half of the game against Newcastle, Kane scored a superb solo goal in the second half. But it proved only to be a consolation, with Eddie Howe's side going on to win 6-1.

The aftermath of the devastating defeat was certainly notable. Spurs parted company with interim manager Stellini, replacing him with Ryan Mason until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Spurs players posted a message on social media confirming they would fully refund the tickets of fans who travelled to St James' Park.

Levy was then spotted at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the draw against United on Thursday, which prompted speculation that he may be set to discuss a potential move to the Red Devils for England's record goalscorer.

Kane reveals 'crisis meeting'

Speaking after the game, Kane revealed he and other Spurs players had held talks with Levy in response to the Newcastle defeat - with his own future not on the agenda.

He explained (quotes via Daily Mail): "The chairman asked for a meeting. Obviously I won't go into what was said but I think it was important [for him] to understand where the players' heads were at in that moment.

"Obviously coming off the back of that [Newcastle] result, and it wasn't just that result, it had been building up since the international break when we conceded the two goals against Southampton.

"It was an honest conversation of where everyone is at and what we need to try to do to give us the best possible chance to finish the season with something.

"We're still fighting for fourth place but if it's not fourth we'll try to finish fifth or sixth, as high up as we can."
