Tottenham forward Harry Kane opened up on his Arsenal roots as Piers Morgan encouraged a return.
The England skipper, who has now scored 150 Premier League goals in just 215 appearances, joined the Gunners when he was eight years old but was released after a single season.
GMB host Piers was quick to mention Kane’s background during their interview on Tuesday, before outlining how it would be ‘torture’ to watch him win the title with their north London rivals.
The 27-year-old went on to state how he is reaping the rewards of choosing to join Spurs at the age of 11, before adding how the views of the controversial host give him extra motivation to succeed.
While asking about the infamous photo of Kane wearing an Arsenal shirt and celebrating their success as a child, Piers asked: “You were a proud Arsenal fan, what happened?”
To which Kane replied: “Well I played for Arsenal when I was younger and unfortunately for them they let me go. I've been at Tottenham since I was 11 years old and reaping the rewards of that now.”
Piers then questioned: “Itching to get back to your routes?”
With Kane responded: “Absolutely not no. We’re in a good spot at the moment so I’m happy, I’m happy.”
Piers then said of Tottenham’s title dreams: “Can’t bare the torture of watching Kane lift the Premier League trophy with Tottenham.”
With Kane concluding: “I know what that would do to you, that’s extra motivation for me.”
Kane has already scored 13 goals in all competitions this season in only 14 appearances, seven of those coming in eight matches in the league.
He said of their title winning chances last week: “When you look at the ability of our squad, you would definitely say we’ve got enough to win a title.
“But I’d also say we’ve been close over the last four, five years but just haven’t quite got over the line.”
