GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS
Glenn Hoddle would not blame Harry Kane if he quits Tottenham — just like he did.
Speaking on his latest podcast, he said: “I don’t think anyone would blame Harry if he moved now, if he said he wanted to win silverware elsewhere and the right offer was there.
“I think he is the one who will make that decision and Spurs will have to get the best deal they can. But it would be a crushing blow.
“Losing a quality player like Kane would be a setback to any club.
“I do not know whether it is in Tottenham’s hands.
“I think it is Harry Kane’s decision at the end of the day, to put his foot down and say he wants to go somewhere else and win trophies.
“There are only a few clubs able to afford him, that’s his problem. There could be a little game of chess.”
Meanwhile, Sam Allardyce called for a complete overhaul of ‘laughing stock,’ VAR this summer – and wants managers and players to have a major say!
Referee Simon Hooper was forced to rule out a legitimate goal by West Brom’s Mbaye Diagne, after Premier League bosses revealed their cameras had been blind-sided and couldn’t spot the striker’s torso!
Asked if he thought the game was in danger of becoming a laughing stock, Allardyce replied: “I’m afraid so.
“The reflection on VAR can be done at the end of the season and all parties should have an influential input into how VAR goes forward.
“That needs to be from the PFA, LMA, Premier League and the FA. There are too many of us not being given an opportunity to express how to make it better.
“The decision was wrong. We got the angle – there are 16 cameras at least here and we got the angle clear on our screens – they came to the wrong decision because of human error.
“Everyone on Sky, the BBC, radio, they all say it was a bloody goal!”
And finally, Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly move to sign Jadon Sancho if star striker Kylian Mbappe fails to pen a new contract.
Mbappe’s current deal with the French champions – who he joined in August 2017 – is set to expire next summer.
The France international has flirted with a move away from the Parc des Princes and has shown little sign of committing his long-term future to the Parisians.
And with Mbappe not making his intentions for the future clear, The Athletic claims PSG have identified England international Sancho as a replacement for the World Cup winner.
PSG’s reported interest in signing Sancho will be a blow to Premier League big boys Manchester United.
The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the 21-year-old, who they tried to sign last summer, and are said to still be interested in acquiring his services.
