Clinton Morrison: Tottenham could lose Kane and Son if they’re not playing Champions League


Tottenham Hotspur lost 2-1 against West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday.

It was Tottenham’s fifth defeat in their last six games and they are really struggling at the moment.

Back in December, Spurs were challenging for the title, but a massive drop in form has seen them slip down to ninth in the league table.

The north London club are nine points behind fourth-placed West Ham, and although they have got a game in hand, the gap looks significant.

After the game, former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison has suggested on BBC Sport that Spurs must concentrate on the Europa League, as he doesn’t see them making the top four this season.

He has also claimed that if Spurs fail to secure Champions League football, they could lose key players like Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.

Morrison said: “With that squad of players they should be doing better. If they finish ninth and win a cup I think they’ll keep Mourinho for next season. But for me it’s still a bad season. Considering the players they have it’s really disappointing.

“I think Tottenham have to concentrate on the Europa League. That’s a passage into the Champions League, because I can’t see them making the top four this season. If you’re not playing Champions League football, you’re going to lose players like Kane and Son.”

Morrison is absolutely spot on here. While mathematically Spurs can still finish in the top four, Jose Mourinho himself has admitted that it looks difficult at the moment.

Son is yet to sign a new contract at the club, and he could be thinking of moving elsewhere if Spurs fail to secure Champions League football next season.

Kane and Son will have no shortage of admirers, and several clubs would be willing to pay a handsome fee to sign them. They are both ambitious players, playing at their peak form, and would love to test themselves at higher levels.
