Last Sunday, Harry Kane further solidified his position as England’s all-time leading scorer by scoring his 55th international goal during the Three Lions’ 2-0 victory over Ukraine.
This followed his surpassing of Wayne Rooney’s record against Italy, and with England’s near-certain qualification for Euro 2024, the team is already considered a major contender.
It remains to be seen whether Kane will finally have the opportunity to lift a trophy during the tournament in Germany next year.
It is worth noting that there is a possibility of Harry Kane winning a trophy in the upcoming season, either with Tottenham Hotspur or with a different club. Kane’s future has been a topic of much discussion lately, with the player having expressed his desire to join Manchester City in the summer of 2021.
However, Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, refused to meet Kane’s demands.
As Harry Kane’s contract with Tottenham Hotspur draws closer to its end, the question that will inevitably arise is whether the 29-year-old will remain with the team in the 2023/24 season.
Although a concrete answer cannot be given at this time, Kane’s future was the topic of discussion on Channel 4 following England’s win over Ukraine at Wembley Stadium. Steven Gerrard, the former Aston Villa manager, and Liverpool legend, provided his insight on the matter while serving as a pundit, and his comments have caused a bit of a stir.
Gerrard asserted that Kane’s current situation is unlike anything he experienced as a player.
Why’s that? Well, Gerrard said Kane “is not from Tottenham”, unlike him with Liverpool.
Check out the footage, which has unsurprisingly attracted attention on social media…

Gerrard is right to some degree. Kane hasn’t been with Spurs his entire life.
He joined the north London club at youth level in 2004, having previously spent time at Ridgeway Rovers, Arsenal (yes, really) and Watford.
But 19 years is still a pretty long time, isn’t it? Hence, why Gerrard’s comments have been criticised by some.
One fan replied: “Whiston to Anfield is 9 miles, Walthamstow to Tottenham is 4 miles. You haven’t got a clue Gerrard.”
Another quipped: “Erm Harry joined Spurs at 11 years old and was born in London!! Maybe he thinks Tottenham is a city?”
There are many in the comment section who agree with Gerrard, though.
One person replied to the tweet above: “You’ve embarrassed yourself here. Everything he said here was spot on. Sometimes the truth can hurt.”
A second added: “Why is that bad? Lol seems like a pretty good take on the situation.”
While a third responded: “Confused, what’s Gerrard said that’s not factual?”
Gerrard said he didn’t want to open a can of worms, but it seems he has…
