Harry Kane explains Arsenal shirt picture and if he would return to Tottenham’s rivals

Spurs star Harry Kane emphatically ruled out a move to Arsenal as he explained the background behind the picture of him in a Gunners shirt as a child.

Kane recently bagged his 200th goal for Spurs as he continues to mark himself out as one of the best strikers in the world.

The 27-year-old has come through the academy at Spurs and is on course to become their record scorer.

But across north London, there is likely to be some jealously given Kane was once on their books as a youngster.

The image of a young Kane, with red hair and in an Arsenal shirt, has gone viral in the past.

And when Kane appeared on Good Morning Britain to promote Football Shirt Friday, a campaign which raises money for the Bobby Moore Fund and Cancer Research UK, presenter and high-profile Arsenal fan Piers Morgan couldn’t resist referring to the striker’s past.

Morgan said: “History with football shirts is quite complicated, isn’t it?

“Because when you were a kid, as every Gunner knows, you were a proud Arsenal fan – what happened to you Harry Kane?”

“I played for Arsenal when I was younger and unfortunately for them they let me go,” Kane replied.

“I’ve been at Tottenham since I was 11 years old and I’m reaping the rewards of that now.”

When asked if he was itching to go back to his ‘roots’, Kane declared: “Absolutely not.

“We’re in a good spot at the moment so I’m happy.”

Meanwhile, England boss Gareth Southgate has revealed he had coronavirus in October.

“I did have the virus, I was fortunate enough not to have had it as seriously as so many people in our country,” he said.

“But it wasn’t pleasant or something you’d choose to have. Everything is fine now.”
