Merson makes bizarre Kane claim over Spurs style

January 3, 2021 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Paul Merson says Tottenham fans would rather watch their team play “the Leeds way” rather than the football currently being played under Jose Mourinho.

Spurs currently sit third in the Premier League table after beating Leeds 3-0 on Saturday.

But ahead of the game Merson claimed the Spurs fans would rather watch their side playing a gung-ho style similar to that of Leeds.

He also suggested Harry Kane won’t be happy with Mourinho’s style, despite scoring ten goals and claiming eleven assists already this season.

“If you are a Tottenham fan, you would probably want to watch the Leeds way,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“Harry Kane, what is he working on? One shot one game. A top centre-forward like that, he wants to score goals.

“If you are not going to win the league and you are not going to win trophies and Tottenham haven’t, you would want to win the Golden Boot if you are Harry Kane, and at the moment, I don’t see that happening at all because he is not getting enough chances.”
