Spurs to dominate North London, says Kane
LONDON: Harry Kane has warned Arsenal that they had better get used to living in Tottenham’s shadow.
Spurs’ 2-0 win over their local rivals on Sunday means they will finish above the Gunners for the first time in 22 years.
And with Spurs due to move into their new stadium for the 2018-19 season, they are quickly closing the gap off the pitch, too.
“Every time we drive (to the stadium) as a squad we can see how big that new stand is getting,” said Kane. “It shows the way the club are going. We’ve got one of the best managers in the world, a great squad and we have just got to keep building.
“Whatever happens this year, next year we have got to be even better.”
Manager Mauricio Pochettino is likely to reject the chance to manage Paris Saint-Germain to continue the Spurs project and keeping his squad together will be key to building on this season’s progress.
But the future of Kyle Walker is uncertain as Manchester City grow increasingly confident of landing the England right-back.
Kieran Trippier took the defender’s place for the FA Cup semi-final defeat by Chelsea and Sunday’s north London derby.
It is understood Pochettino is willing to sacrifice a regular firstteam player to generate extra transfer funds and former City trainee Trippier, who is set to sign a new contract, looks a ready-made replacement for Walker. Daily Mail
