Pundit claims Tottenham are in ‘big trouble’ and could get relegated if Kane joins Man Utd
Tottenham could get relegated next season if they decide to sell Harry Kane to Manchester United in the summer, according to Jamie O’Hara.
A season that had looked mildly promising at one point has turned into a terrible campaign for Spurs with the north Londoners slipping to eighth in the Premier League.
Things had looked decent earlier in the campaign when they were in a good position to finish in the Premier League’s top four, in the last 16 of the Champions League and faced a match against Sheffield United for a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
But the Blades and AC Milan dumped them out of both the FA Cup and Champions League in the same week and Tottenham have barely recovered since.
Just a couple of weeks after their exit from the Champions League, Antonio Conte left the club by mutual consent before his temporary replacement, Cristian Stellini, was fired not long after.
Caretaker boss Ryan Mason has been unable to push them towards the top four and they could now miss out on European football next season altogether.
But former Spurs midfielder O’Hara thinks things could get a lot worse for Tottenham – who are reportedly close to appointing Feyenoord manager Arne Slot – if they allow Kane to leave this season with Man Utd heavily linked with a transfer.
O’Hara said on talkSPORT: “Well look, obviously we all hope that he sticks around and signs a new contract.
“Because Laura [speaking to Laura Woods], without Harry Kane, I seriously think we could be fighting relegation next season.”
Woods disagreed with O’Hara but he added: “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 guy wants to win something, the guy deserves to win trophies. I just don’t see that changing next season.”
O’Hara has made it clear that he doesn’t want Kane to leave but he thinks the England captain will show a lack of ambition if he does stay at Tottenham.
He continued: “If he doesn’t leave, he lacks ambition doesn’t he? Let’s be honest.
“If he doesn’t leave and a club does come in for him and Spurs go, ‘you know what, we will probably look at having to sell you.’
“And he doesn’t go to let’s say Manchester United, then I think he lacks ambition.”
