Harry Kane says he never refused to train at Tottenham in a statement and says he will return to the club on Saturday “as planned”.
The England captain has been heavily criticised for not showing up for pre-season tests on Monday but broke his silence on Friday afternoon.
On Friday, Kane tweeted: “While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow, as planned.”
“It’s almost ten years since I made my Spurs debut. For every one of those years, you – the fans – have shown me total support and love.
“That’s why it hurts to read some of the comments that have been made this week, questioning my professionalism.
“While I won’t go into the specifics of the situation, I want to clarify that I would never, and have never, refused to train. I will be returning to the club tomorrow (Saturday), as planned.
“I wouldn’t do anything to jeopardise the relationship I have with the fans who have given me such unwavering support during my time with the club. This has always been the case as it is today. Harry.”
