In the past few years, the story for Tottenham has always been the same from other supporters.
Something along the lines of ‘they’re good, but they need to win silverware’ is a phrase that has likely been spoken in passing conversation about Spurs and some point by football supporters, and the statement is true to a degree.
It has been over a decade since Tottenham last won silverware, and with star players like Christian Eriksen touted for moves away from Spurs in the upcoming months as per Four Four Two, it seemingly appears that a lack of trophies is currently playing on the minds of some of the club’s best players.

FA Cup At Least

No, Next Season Maybe
And former manager Tim Sherwood has thrown his hat into the ring, claiming to beIN Sports via Goal that Harry Kane, who flourished under the ex-Spurs boss, should leave Tottenham in the future if he is yet to win silverware by 2021.
Sherwood said: “(Kane) needs to win something. So I think he’ll give it a period of time, certainly next season. The end of this season and next season and see if they can get closer to winning something. And if they don’t, then he will leave.”
Indeed, it is an easy claim to make with Kane being one of the top strikers in world football as well as the captain of a major European nation on the international stage that he will likely need to leave Tottenham to win silverware.
But the appointment of Jose Mourinho has changed that completely.
With just one managerial change, Spurs have gone from a side this season that would have likely, again, won nothing to a club that have a genuine chance of ending their decade-long run without any silverware, and Kane will seemingly play a big role in this goal.
Kane has the hallmarks of a Tottenham legend in the making, and the striker should be waving off Sherwood’s comments about leaving for silverware, especially with Mourinho at the wheel.
