"Tottenham have no personality without Kane" - Ferdinand says

Rio Ferdinand claims Tottenham lacks personality and characters in his squad without Harry Kane.

On Thursday night, the Spurs had their third Premier League loss in a row at home against Chelsea.

Tottenham

 

didn't have the chance to make an attacking threat in the game as they sat back and absorbed pressure.

Kane

 

couldn't make it to the match having an injury, also missing Spurs' 1-0 defeat against Brighton last weekend, and Ferdinand is worried that they lack players.

"It was an aimless performance. Nothing to it. No personality,"

 former England and Manchester United defender announced post-match.

"If Kane doesn't play, the personality of this team is drained straight out of the team. No confidence, no character, no leader. Nobody driving the team. 

"Whether that's the players or the manager who needs to drive this time, I think it's a combination of both. 

"We saw them against Brighton last week and Brighton looked like the team going for Champions League football. It's worrying. 

"They are not far off the Champions League in terms of points, but the way they are performing of late is a worry."

Ferdinand was introduced to the studio by Jermaine Jenas, who performed for Tottenham between 2005 and 2013.

"There's no plan. That's the problem,"

 he said. 

"I'm looking at players who are scared, they don't want to get on the ball. That's the biggest crime you can make as a footballer. 

"Another big problem of theirs is their body language, it's shocking. 

"Serge Aurier, standing around, doing nothing. Vinicius, do you want to help out and run into channels or come in? No, a lot of standing and watching. The players are not interested."
