Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane urges club chairman Daniel Levy to support manager Antonio Conte
Speaking to Sky Sports (h/t Evening Standard), Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane has urged club chairman Daniel Levy to support manager Antonio Conte with whatever he needs to turn the side into world-beaters.
The player was speaking off the back of a disappointing 3-2 loss to Manchester United at Old Trafford, courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick. Kane scored a goal in the game as well, but could not add more to prevent a defeat for his side.
The Englishman reflected on the loss to Man United and said that solutions to improve the team take time and understanding. After all, there is no quick fix that magically works overnight.
“It’s not a quick fix that happens overnight, it takes time and understanding.”
The loss to the Red Devils also dented Spurs’ top-four hopes, as both teams were competing to finish in the fourth spot in the Premier League table this season. Luckily for Conte, he has a few games in hand to try and make up the deficit.
“Can’t speak highly enough”
The loss in Manchester follows an incredibly inconsistent season for Tottenham, alternating between wins and losses across multiple competitions. Having won their last two PL games, many expected the Lilywhites to put together a winning run, but that was not meant to be.
Kane said that Conte was the right person for the job to fix their issues and that a chat with Levy will need to be had to see which direction the club was heading into. The England skipper said that the players were all behind their Italian manager.
“Of course he’s mentioned he needs to talk to the club and chairman, and to see what direction we need to go as a club. From my point of view, the players’ point of view, we can’t speak highly enough of him.”
The 28-year-old striker has played for Tottenham his entire Premier League career but has still been unable to win trophies at the club. This season as well, they were knocked out of several competitions while the PL title is a distant dream.
Spurs’ last trophy was the League Cup in 2008, and till now, the closest they have come to breaking this drought was the League Cup final last year when they lost to Manchester City by a single goal.

A Champions League final was also lost earlier to Liverpool, and Kane was unable to help his side in either game. The striker cannot be blamed, however, as it is a team effort to get the side over the line, and they need the right person in charge of the club to guide them all the way.
Conte’s CV and reputation show exactly that, and he has proven that he can do the job in England as well. Hopefully, Levy is able to back him with the resources he needs to transform the club into trophy winners.
