Talk about talkSPORT, said former Spurs man O’Hara: ‘It’s hard for me as Harry Kane is Mr Tottenham in my opinion, but I look at his body language and look at the way he plays and he doesn’t play very well,’ he said. . .
“At the start of the season I enjoyed Spurs when he wasn’t playing. I know that sounds bad because he’s a great player and he’s someone you need on your team, but he’s come back to the team and we can’t win.
‘When it was [Steven] mountain wine, [Lucas] Moura and [Heung-min] Son up front, we were inside, we were composed, we took the pressure and tried to hit teams on the counterattack.

“Harry Kane has come back and he’s trying to do everything. For some parts of the game he plays as a tenacious midfielder!
“They do too much, we need you to play up front and where things can happen.
“I feel like he’s slowing things down a bit for us at the moment.
“You cannot criticize him for what he is and what he has done for the football club, but at the moment he is not playing very well for us.”
