Tottenham Hotspur chief executive Daniel Levy put an end to Mauricio Pochettino’s reign at the club on Tuesday night.
After five-and-a-half years in north London, the Argentine was sacked with Spurs sat 14th in the Premier League.
The Whites have been on a terrible run of form, having won just three times in the league this year.
Their last win came at the end of September against Southampton, before a disappointing spell of results.
And former Chelsea player Craig Burley believes there is a chance the likes of Harry Kane will consider leaving the club after the sacking.
Kane has long been tentatively linked with a move away from Spurs, with Real Madrid and Manchester United often tipped to make big-money moves for the forward.
Spurs are expecting to lose Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen next season - with none of the three willing to sign new contracts.
But Burley believes they now run the risk of losing Kane, who he said should be pushing for a move to a European giant.Harry Kane has been tentatively linked with a move away (Image: GETTY)
“If Tottenham really wanted to go for it this season they would have spent big off the back of the Champions League Final,” he said on ESPN FC. “But they didn’t.
“We’ll see now what the ‘I love Tottenham’ brigade does, we’ll see what Harry Kane does and quite a few others.
“I’ve always said when Pochettino goes, and Levy continues to run the club the same way he runs it, which from a business point is probably pretty well, let’s see how many remain.
“If I was Harry Kane, and I’m picking him out as the main man, who would probably be on the list of the top five clubs in European football, why the hell would you stay at Tottenham Hotspur?Jose Mourinho is the new Tottenham manager (Image: GETTY)
“You’ve just lost one of the best managers in the game, no matter about results in the last six months, because there will be other clubs willing to offer him a job - bigger jobs than Tottenham.
“Why would he stay? Why would he stay when he knows Eriksen is not happy, Vertonghen is not happy, Alderweirld, Rose, all these players. Why would Harry Kane stay?
“Then, once Harry Kane - the main man - along with the manager decides its’ time to go, then it’s just a rolling stone gathering moss.
“Then we’ll see if the board comes out and says it was a good decision to sack Mauricio Pochettino.”
