Harry Kane denies rumors about refusing to train and will return to Tottenham Hotspur ‘as planned’. Kane did not show up for pre-season training this week, which fueled speculation about his future at Tottenham.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding his future, Harry Kane has emphasized that he has never refused to train and that he will return to Tottenham “as planned” on Saturday. Manchester City football transfer target Kane made headlines on Monday when he failed to report for training with Spurs, who refused to comment publicly on the matter.
England’s captain was given an extended break after leading the Three Lions to the Euro 2020 final last month. However, the England national team lost the European Championship to Italy.
Harry Kane has been heavily linked to Manchester City and since hinting in May that he might leave Tottenham during the current transfer window he has been the subject of intense speculation. On the other hand, the 28 years old claims it was always planned for him to return to Tottenham’s squad on Saturday.
“It’s almost ten years since I made my Spurs debut. For every one of those years, you – the fans – have shown me total support and love,” a statement posted to Kane’s official social media channels read. “That’s why it hurts to read some of the comments that have been made this week, questioning my professionalism.”
“While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned. I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize the relationship I have with the fans who have given me such unwavering support during my time with the club. This has always been the case as it is today,” England captain added.
