Carragher: I'd tell Spurs striker Kane the same I told Gerrard at Liverpool

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has dismissed claims of Harry Kane being forced to sit out Tottenham training in order to force an exit.

Likening Kane's current dilemma with Steven Gerrard's transfer saga with Chelsea in 2005, Carragher wrote in The Telegraph: "I have no problem with him wanting to go to (Manchester) City.

"But it's the way he's going about trying to get that transfer by not turning up to training that is worrying.

"My message to Harry would the same as it was to Stevie: don't ruin your reputation for this; always think about your name and standing in the game. For me, that is as important as any trophy Harry could win.

"I still don't understand this talk of Kane being backed into a corner.

"Has he? Why so? The club never forced Harry Kane to sign a six-year deal in 2018.

"It's the fault of him and his advisors for signing a contract that long without a buyout clause, which was absolutely ridiculous."
