Spurs can not force Harry Kane to stay, admits Pochettino

  • Predicted Spurs XI vs Wimbledon

With Manchester City out of sight at the top of the Premier League and a fearsome Juventus to face in the Champions League next month, Tottenham can ill-afford any complacency this weekend.

We also already expect that Kane would be the player for whom Spurs would smash their wage structure, as no matter how much he loves the club paying one of (if not the) best striker in European football £125k/week isn't sustainable.

Mauricio Pochettino has overseen a remarkable period of progress since taking charge in 2014 but the team's improvement is yet to be converted into trophy success.

But it was that man Kane who would inevitably break the deadlock. The English-striker has 24 goals in all competitions this season and he is averaging a goal every 91 minutes. Dele Alli may look at this game as a superb chance to rekindle his ailing form, while he will want to add to his nine goals and nine assists this season, and he could likely spark a rout for his side.

But a report from the Australian Transport Safety Board released later in the year pointed to a new search area where the plane could be found.


Long denied Kane a hat-trick with a firm save on 75 minutes, ahead of a couple of efforts on goal from Son, the best of which was deflected by Adedeji Oshilaja onto the woodwork. This has left the visiting side in 21st-place in the league with 27 points, a point behind Oldham Athletic and safety. And then, of course, Carabao Cup or FA Cup are important if we can win of course we are going to win.

Wimbledon started the second half strongly, but the hosts were soon in the ascendency, with Mousa Dembele striking a low shot against the base of the post before they finally got the breakthrough in the 63rd minute. AFC Wimbledon, meanwhile, made four line-up changes from their last game.

Premier League Tottenham were labouring to break down the visitors before Kane effectively sealed the tie with goals in the 64th and 66th minutes.
