Tim Sherwood believes Tottenham Hotspur, led by Ange Postecoglou, will win the Premier League with Harry Kane.
Tottenham’s new manager worked briefly with Harry Kane before to his summer transfer to Bayern Munich, and the squad hasn’t missed their club-record striker since.
Spurs are top of the table after eight games, with Tim Sherwood dismissing the notion that they are ‘better’ without Harry Kane, as he told Premier League Productions (09/10/23 at 2:35 pm).
Tim Sherwood was instrumental in bringing the now-England captain through at Hotspur Way, and he believes Ange Postecoglou has made them ‘better’ rather than the team becoming better as a result of their 30-year-old hitman leaving.
While Tottenham had a similar start to the previous season under Antonio Conte, things are much better with their new coach.
From the style of play, the improvement of previously struggling players and the new signings. It has got fans believing like never before.
Harry Kane under Ange Postecoglou
“I think they are Harry Kane away from winning the league,” said Sherwood.
“I listen to people saying ‘they are better off without Harry Kane’. They aren’t better without Harry Kane. They are better with Postecoglou.”
Tottenham’s aim for this season
The trophy talk will go on until Spurs finally lift some silverware again, but in terms of the Premier League, the aim would have been to get back in Europe.
And, as of this moment, they are showing every sign that it will happen.
Even if Spurs fall heavily from their current top spot. If they can manage to get people talking about whether they are in the title race or not for as long as possible, then in the meantime, it will all but ensure that European football returns.
