The Swedish legend branded Spurs ‘normal’ and said the England captain should leave if he wants to win trophies
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has told Harry Kane he needs to leave Tottenham Hotspur if he wants to win trophies.
The former Manchester United and Barcelona striker has won a plethora of titles across the globe and warned the England captain he risks missing out at ‘normal’ Spurs.
Kane has been with the north London side since 2004, progressing through the ranks after several loan spells.
Now revered as one of the most dangerous marksmen in the world, the World Cup Golden Boot winner signed a lucrative, long-term deal after a fantastic summer in Russia.
However, the 25-year-old is yet to lift any silverware in his career and Spurs are in danger of self-imploding this season.
Already nine points off leaders Liverpool in the Premier League, injuries to Kane and Dele Alli mean Tottenham are lacking serious firepower heading into the final half of the season.
Coupled with Heung-Min Son helping South Korea progress at the Asian Cup, Daniel Levy’s reluctance to sign reinforcements seems to be crippling the club.
And Ibrahimovic believes Kane must leave Tottenham if he wants to be remembered as one of the game’s best attackers.
The LA Galaxy striker told Bethard: “When I was in England, I saw him play.
“I think he is a good striker. He’s still developing, he’s doing good things.
“But I always say, playing in a big club, performing good is different from playing in… with all respect to Tottenham, a ‘normal’ club.
“I think he can make it. He just needs to make the move, and people will remember you for what you win.
“So if he wants to win, then yes, I think he needs to change.”
