Harry Kane has insisted his conscience is clear after his failed attempts to force the transfer from Tottenham to Manchester City.
Kane, who is set to become England captain in their World Cup qualifier against Hungary on Thursday night, has made it clear he has no regrets for trying to organize a move. The striker’s hopes of a lucrative transfer collapsed after the Premier League champions decided not to meet Spurs’ £ 150million asking price, but he is convinced the saga has failed tarnished its reputation.
“I don’t think so,” Kane said. “Anyone involved in the football industry knows the ins and outs and I was calm with the situation. It was between me and the club. When you know the truth and you know what’s going on, your conscience is clear I have had ups and downs and I know a lot of people who know that I am a professional athlete and who dedicate my life to this sport.
“My goal for the future is to win silverware at Tottenham and this year is no different. We started off brilliantly in the Premier League with three wins and we have a new manager. That’s my goal. We want to. win as many matches as possible and get that trophy that I’ve wanted my whole career.
Kane, who played a key role in getting England to the Euro 2020 final, has been making headlines since announcing in May of his willingness to leave Spurs. However, the 28-year-old said he didn’t let the uncertainty over his future get in the way of his focus.
“I’m good enough to get away from it all,” Kane told TalkSport. “After the final I was in England for a few days, then I went on vacation for a few weeks and was rarely on the phone. I know there was a lot of noise around me but I was calm. I knew the situation between me and the club. Everyone had their opinion, but I am fully focused on the club and the country and look forward to a great year. “
