Jamie Carragher and Rio Ferdinand have engaged in a war of words over the Harry Kane controversy.
Over the course of the last few weeks it’s been pretty clear to see that Kane is edging towards leaving Tottenham Hotspur. The England star has spent many years carving out a fantastic legacy for himself in North London, but now, he seems to be on the verge of leaving his beloved Spurs in favour of a move to reigning English champions Manchester City.
Harry Kane – from hero to villain?
It’s the opportunity Kane has been searching for with regards to pursuing silverware after failing to achieve that goal with Tottenham.
The manner in which Harry leaves the club is always going to be controversial, but that’s especially true after he twice failed to show up to training this week.
Two men that know about club loyalty are Jamie Carragher and Rio Ferdinand who, when discussing the matter on social media, had a slight disagreement with regards to how Kane has approached this situation.
Ferdinand is of the belief that this ordeal isn’t going to impact Kane’s legacy at Tottenham. On the flip side, Carra really isn’t pleased with the fact that the 28-year-old has opted to go down this route, believing that it makes him look more than a little bit unprofessional.
There are many different stances to be taken here and it’s somewhat difficult to know what Spurs supporters are going to be feeling. On the one hand their talisman is on his way out of the front door, but on the other, he’s also provided them with memories to last a lifetime.
Either way Kane’s first game of the new Premier League season is going to be a dramatic one given that Tottenham will be facing none other than Manchester City on August 15.
