Tottenham Hotspur superstar ruled out switch to Arsenal
Harry Kane insists he has absolutely no intention of ever making Arsenal return after Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan attempted to persuade the England centre-forward to rejoin the red half of north London.
The Tottenham forward was on the show to encourage supporters to wear a football shirt on Friday to support the Bobby Moore Fund for cancer, though Piers could not resist teasing Harry over his former allegiance.
Before the 27-year-old star moved to White Hart Lane some 16 years ago Kane was actually on the books of Arsenal as a schoolboy, though the north Londoners released him which prompted a transfer to their north London rivals.
Morgan trolled Harry with an infamous picture of the then eight-year-old celebrating the Gunners’ Premier League title win in 2004 sporting a red shirt – and even copying Arsenal hero Freddie Ljungberg’s dyed red hair.
‘Now your history with football shirts is quite complicated isn’t it,’ said Piers.
‘Because when you were a kid – as every Gooner knows – you were a proud Arsenal fan. What happened to you Harry Kane?’
Harry replied: ‘Well, I played for Arsenal when I was younger and unfortunately for them they let me go.
‘So I’ve been at Tottenham since I was 11 years old and reaping the rewards of that now.’
Quizzed if he was ‘itching to get back to his roots’, Spurs man shut down Morgan’s attempts to get him back to the Emirates, saying:
‘Absolutely not! No, we’re in a good spot at the moment so I’m happy [at Spurs].’
