Steven Gerrard says he knows what Harry Kane thinks of a transfer, given the comparisons made with Liverpool


Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has his say on the future of Tottenham Hotspur and England star Harry Kane

Steven Gerrard believes Harry Kane’s dilemma over whether or not to leave Tottenham Hotspur is “different” from the decision he once made during his Liverpool career.

Kane became England’s all-time top scorer after scoring in a Euro qualifying match in Italy on Thursday, a feat that came just a month after surpassing Jimmy Greaves’ record of 266 goals for Tottenham.

Impressing for club and country has never been an issue for the prolific striker, although there are still doubts about his trophy. Kane, who turns 30 in July, is yet to win a major trophy and many believe he will only change if he gets a transfer from Tottenham Hotspur. He has been linked with a move to Manchester United this summer, having previously come under fire from rivals Manchester City. Facing a similar situation during the early stages of his career at Liverpool when Chelsea visited in 2004, Gerrard acknowledged the difficult position Kane is in, but believes the England international does not face the same concerns morals.

“Listen, I don’t want to open a can of worms,” ​​the Reds legend told Channel 4 after watching Kane score in England’s 2-0 win against Ukraine at Wembley on Sunday.

“He has a big decision to make in his career. Have I been there where you think, ‘Is my team good enough for me to win medals’? Am I going to get what I want out of my career? For me it’s different because I grew up as a Liverpool fan in the city, my whole family were Liverpool fans and I knew that winning one more trophy with Liverpool would mean so much more to me than being anywhere else.”

“He’s not from Tottenham, he hasn’t always been around Tottenham,” continued Gerrard, referring to the forward’s rise to Arsenal’s academy and four loan spells away from Spurs. “He has a big decision to make. I can’t advise him on that, but I bet he will think about it every day of his life.

“The most important thing is that he stays focused and it shows in his performances of him. He seems to have nothing on his mind.” He’s really focused and local, which is why we admire him.”
