RIO FERDINAND has urged Harry Kane to leave Tottenham if he wants to win trophies – just like he did when he left Leeds.
The England skipper is yet to win a major trophy with Spurs following this year’s devastating defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final.
Tottenham have not secured any silverware since 2008 when they beat Chelsea in the League Cup final.
And Ferdinand has insisted it is time for the 26-year-old to leave North London – before it’s too late.
Ahead of the clash against Bayern Munich, Ferdinand told BT Sport: “It leads me to look at Harry Kane.
“What are you in the game for? Are you in the game to be a one club man or to win trophies? Do Spurs look like a team capable of winning trophies?
“I don’t think so. They were a better team a couple of years ago.
“Leeds is a similar example, I was maybe a year or two younger but I was in a team at a Champions League semi-final, nearly won the league, but I thought I had the opportunity to go.

“I made a very quick decision to go and win trophies.”
Ferdinand went on to spend 12 incredible years with Manchester United after he waved goodbye to Leeds.
He made 454 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals and winning six Premier League titles, two League Cups and the Champions League in 2008.
The pundit continued: “Harry Kane is probably thinking about it and having those questions. They need answering soon.
“He’s 26 and you only have a small window of opportunity, they come and go very quickly.”

Peter Crouch backed up Ferdinand as he agreed Spurs are not ready to get their hands on some silverware.
He said: “There’s a lot to be said about being a legend at a football club.
He’ll want to win trophies, but they [Spurs] are not there at the moment. He’ll want signings and assurances or he will leave.”
