Former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham has accused Harry Kane of “having the hump” following his failure to force his way out of the club in the summer.

Sheringham believes the vice-captain, who is expected to skipper Tottenham against Burnley in the Carabao Cup clash at Turf Moor on Wednesday night, is no longer leading by example.

Kane tried and failed to engineer a high-profile move to Manchester City over the summer and has struggled for form since, scoring just once in the Premier League so far this term.

“He was probably given assurances that he could leave,” Sheringham said. “Those assurances haven’t been stuck to and it looks like Kane has the hump.

“He needs to change that around and realise he is still the Tottenham vice-captain and still a Tottenham player and do better.

“I think it’s a real tough time for Tottenham. When you have a striker who is also the vice-captain like Harry Kane, he leads by example rather than telling everyone what to do.

“That’s a very different scenario. They need a leader at the back or in midfield to dominate and dictate and tell people what they’re doing wrong.

“I’m really not a lover of a centre-forward being the captain and he’s not performing at the best of his capabilities at the moment, so he’s not even leading by example.”
