Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hailed Tottenham striker Harry Kane as a quality player, but he doesn’t see the 27-year-old as a leader.

Kane has voiced his desire to leave North London in search of silverware, but Keane has been critical of his leadership quality in the Tottenham squad.

“The only thing I’d hold against Kane, there’s a big negative I have towards Kane,” Keane told SkyBet.

“I think Kane is an amazing player, every club should be trying to sign him, Manchester United have got to sign him, I don’t care if it’s £120 million… sign him.

“But I don’t think he’s a good leader.

“I never see him digging anyone out at Spurs. I know people might go, ‘well that’s not his personality’ or, ‘he might do it in the dressing room’. I don’t think he does and that’s a big problem.

“Okay, you can lead with your brilliant play. But I think sometimes I want to see another side to Kane, I’d love to see him get hold of somebody.

“I’m on about Spurs players where I think some of them were really poor and downing tools on certain managers – I never saw Kane digging them out.

“So that’s my only hang-up with Kane as a leader and as a captain.”
