Rio Ferdinand says that if he was in Harry Kane or Christian Eriksens shoes then he would have already left Tottenham Hotspur.

Ferdinand was speaking as Spurs began their Champions League campaign away to Olympiakos, a game which saw them throw away a two-goal lead and draw 2-2 in Greece.

While Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has earned widespread praise for the job he has done at Tottenham since taking over in 2014, Ferdinand believes the lack of trophies is a source of frustration for players.

Since the Argentinian took over, Spurs have reached the Champions League final and the League Cup final but never won a competition.

The former England defender says that if he was a star player in the white half of north London then he would be looking to move to a club that is more likely to put some silverware in the trophy cabinet.



If you look at it as if youre an individual, put yourself in like Harry Kanes shoes, youre saying “Im off”, Ferdinand told BT Sport. Ive got to be honest with you, Id be gone because Ive not got time to hang around.

Christian Eriksen

I could get injured next season, I could lose form etc. I want to win now. Ive given most of my career to this club and they havent [won anything].

Yeah, you go very close, you can keep going very close, theyve been close a few times of winning the league and then obviously the Champions League. Its not enough.

I can understand [Christian] Eriksen, you can understand Eriksens frustrations and wanting to leave and saying “I want to go somewhere and potentially win something,” not be a maybe.
