‘They’re a club that are moving further and further away from where he wants to be… it’s now or never’: Rio Ferdinand and Peter Crouch both agree that Harry Kane should LEAVE Tottenham this summer in search of trophies

Rio Ferdinand and Peter Coruch both felt Harry Kane should be looking to Leave Tottenham after they crashed out of the Champions League on Wednesday night.
Spurs’ 0-0 draw with AC Milan meant they were out of the competition after losing the first leg 1-0, just seven days after also being knocked out of the FA Cup by Sheffield United.
It means that Kane, who recently became Tottenham’s all-time leading goal scorer and is chasing down Alan Shearer’s Premier League record, will remain trophy-less at the end of his 13th year at the club.
‘Whatever happens silverware-wise, Spurs fans will be hoping that Harry Kane is ‘that’ guy,’ said Ferdinand on BT Sport: ‘They’ll hope he wants to be ‘Mr. Spurs’ for the rest of his career.’
‘If I was him I’d be looking at pastures new to get some silverware. It’s not long ago playing the Champions League final and finishing second in the league, but they’re a club that are moving further and further away from where he wants to be. He needs to go where he thinks he’ll get his hands on a trophy quickest.’

Peter Crouch agreed that Kane should think about getting out of the club, but admitted it would not be an easy decision.
He added: ‘I think it’s now or never. He’s the clubs record goal scorer, he’s done everything he’s been asked to here.
‘Then again, the grass isn’t always greener. If he leaves and then sees Tottenham win an FA cup that’ll hurt him. But having said that, the likelihood of Tottenham winning things feels low.
‘I do think he goes in the summer. He’ll look at it tonight and the season he’s had. He is in the 20 goal bracket. There’s no one close to him at the club. ‘
‘I think he’ll think perhaps he’ll want to move on. I see him at United.’
Regardless of Kane’s future, Spurs face another disappointing season after a lacklustre performance in Wednesday.

Ferdinand was particularly damning of their performance, as he continued: ‘Spurs were embarrassing. No spark, no urgency, lacklustre at times, dour, drab.
‘They’ve done nothing, there was no fight, no spirit in that team. They’ll be looking around that dressing room thinking we all could have done more. Individually and as a team.
‘The last thing you want as a player is to go off the pitch thinking you could have done more. That’s how they’ll be leaving this stadium today.’
Tottenham will have little time to dwell on their shortcomings as they are next in action against Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
