Tottenham Hotspur might have lost to Manchester City on Saturday for the second time this season, but they’re still a pretty remarkable football club with some outstanding players. Harry Winks thinks so too. The injured Spurs midfielder was part of beIn Sports’ coverage of the match and had some extraordinarily nice things to say about his fellow Harry — striker Harry Kane.

“For me he’s the best striker in the world, and I think he’s proven that. As an out-and-out number 9, I think he’s the best striker in the world, I do.

“What I gage from talking to him and seeing him around the building every day, he loves the club, he’s passionate about succeeding and winning trophies at Tottenham. As far as I can see he’s more than happy at Spurs and hopefully he can lead us to glory and trophies.”

Solidarity between the Tottenham Harrys! It’s not like Winksy was going to NOT say nice stuff about Kane. Even so, in a world that continually tries to tell Spurs fans that their homegrown striker is going to bolt for Real Madrid as soon as they come calling with a serious offer, it’s always good to have further reinforcement that he’s happy and not looking to leave. Ever.

Now we just have to get Winksy healthy again.
