Harry Kane was desperate to leave Tottenham this summer.
The 28-year old striker was pushing for a move away from the North London club this summer but a move failed to materialise as Man City decided not to pay £150million for the English forward.
Since then he had a disappointing start to the season scoring once in his last eight Premier League matches.
Teddy Sheringham believes the England captain needs to put aside his frustration aside and perform better in the games.
‘He was probably given assurances that he could leave,’ Sheringham said via The Evening Standard.
‘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 really 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.’
