Harry Kane fails to turn up to Tottenham training amid Man City transfer saga

Published

on

Harry Kane has reportedly failed to show up to Tottenham training as planned after returning from holiday as speculation continues to mount over a potential summer transfer.

Kane is believed to have indicated his desire to leave Spurs this summer with Manchester City leading contenders to sign the England captain.

Kane was due back at Spurs training this morning after a short holiday where he was set to undergo a COVID test and do blood work ahead of the new season.

But whilst other players such as Giovani Lo Celso and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg returned, Kane failed to report back to his club as planned.

Kane was given extra time off after his exploits at Euro 2020 as England reached the final and were beaten by Italy on penalties.

But new Spurs manager Nuno Espirito Santo now faces a huge issue regarding his star striker who appears increasingly intent on forcing an exit.

Speaking last month about Kane, Santo insisted he had “no doubts” that Kane would return to the group as planned.

Speaking at his first press conference as Spurs head coach, when asked if he expects to have Kane at the club for the beginning of the season, Nuno responded: “I have no doubts in my mind. What I wish is for Harry to recover well and have a good rest.

When he arrives he will feel that he has to commit himself to become better. We are ambitious, we want to do well and we count on Harry to do that.

“Harry is our player, period. There is no need to talk about anything else. Now is the time for him to rest. When he returns we can have a good conversation. I am looking forward to him joining the group.”

Kane, who has three years left on his current deal at Tottenham, has yet to win a major trophy in his career and spoke openly late last season about his personal ambitions.

Some team-mates feared he would fail to report to training if progress over a move was not made, according to The Telegraph, and those fears have now been realised.

Asked about his future during Euro 2020, Kane remained tight-lipped.

“It’s been ok. I’m sure I’ll get asked about it a lot but my most important thing is trying to win a major tournament with England,” he told the BBC.

Liverpool 3-2 AC Milan: Jordan Henderson’s stunner seals comeback win

Published

on

Liverpool opened their Champions League campaign with an instant classic as Jordan Henderson’s stunning strike secured three points against AC Milan.

It was a memorable night at Anfield as the Reds sealed a 3-2 comeback victory over the Italians.

Trent Alexander-Arnold helped fire the Reds in front as his deflected effort, which went down as a Fikayo Tomori own goal, gave them a well-deserved lead.

But after Mohamed Salah failed to convert a spot-kick to double their advantage, the Serie A side were somehow in the lead at halftime after a quickfire double from Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz.

Salah then redeemed himself by bringing the hosts level just after the break, before Henderson’s screamer put the Reds back on top to seal the win.
