Seems a real bright spark doesn't he ? That said, I guess it's what footballers do on the pitch that concerns us.

I was trying to work out what he was saying at the start.
"So for example, I've got Ozzie (Kakay) in front of me; Like, I'm 27, I know the game inside out, I know that, no disrespect, I'm a better player than him."
What's the actual context here or was it just Kane being salty?

Apparently, this is what Kane said: "Of course, you always need competition because someone's always gonna be there to take your shirt. Say, for example, I've got Ozzy in front of me. I'm 27, I know the game inside out, I know that, no disrespect, I'm a better player than him. With my experience, the way I can play... alright last season might not have been great but I have my reasons why. Everybody saying "he's better than Toddy Kane blah blah blah" I take it on the chin, it is what it is, but realistically I aint getting a club putting in a £13m bid to go to Sheff Utd for nothing. You know what I mean? When somebody is playing in the Scottish second league. No disrespect to him, but it puts a bit of fire in my belly."

Sheffield United must be desperate for a player who can hit the first defender with virtually every attempt at a cross

He might know the game inside out but he hasn't worked himself and his inferiority complex out yet.

Cheers DM.

What's all this business about £13m bid to go to Sheff Utd then?

That still makes no sense to me. Sheff Utd would only have had that kind of money to spend after promotion to the Premier League two years ago. Is he seriously suggesting that anyone offered £13M for him based on his performances over that period ? Or that Chelsea or QPR wouldn't have bitten the hand off any club daft enough to have done so ?

That's some next level delusion there.

Kane's ludicrous claim has caused a great deal of mirth and puzzlement. Given there's a fair amount of social media chatter about this interview, the other question is whether the club will want to address what Kane's said about a team colleague and what they might do. A player shouldn't be making public statements about a fellow player as he's done.

Correct. No one does at 27. It is a stupid thing to say. The annoying thing is, he has been far better this season than last (from what I've seen of him). Whether he's better than Kakay is not his call and it won't do much for team cohesion. But we all know that most footballers are not the sharpest tacks in the box so let's cut him some slack. Who of us hasn't said the odd stupid thing now and then? The trouble for him is that he broadcast it.

He should be more worried about getting turned inside out. He's been better in recent weeks but he's been pretty poor for most of his time here. I don't think the club should do anything, Kakay should tell him he's a prick and hopefully, it spurs him on to win his place back, i know who i'd prefer to see turn out for the club.

I think Kane has chewed more than he can bite off.
