Harry Kane may be going through his first difficult period in Germany, but it seems all is not going well in England either.

A statue in honor of the English captain has been hidden in storage for years because his municipality does not know where to place it.

In honor of the Walthamstow-born striker, it was announced in 2019 that Waltham Forest Council had plans to erect a work of art in recognition of his achievements.

That year and in 2020 they allocated £7,200 to commission a sculpture of the Chingford-raised footballer.

However, according to the BBC, the life-size figure of him sitting on a bench has yet to be seen by the public.

Harry Kane is still waiting for a statue in his honor – five years after the announced plans

The statue was intended to be installed on a platform at Chingford Overground station, but they were shelved following a risk assessment carried out by Transport for London.

Emma Best and Roy Berg, the Conservative councilors for Chingford’s Endlebury ward, who approved the project, subsequently rejected the idea of ​​putting it in Ridgeway Park, according to the Local Democracy Reporting Service.

A spokesperson for 30-year-old Kane said they were ‘very excited’ about the statue and hoped it would be unveiled ‘in the coming months’.

‘Especially because Harry is England and Tottenham’s all-time top scorer. This is what he deserves,” the spokesperson said.

‘The location of the statue is very important to us and as Emma said, we are having some issues at the moment but all being well we are happy to move forward.’

For now, however, Kane’s immediate focus will be on halting Bayern Munich’s decline, both domestically and in Europe.

“In a good and open conversation, we came to the decision to end our working relationship by mutual agreement in the summer,” said Dreesen. ‘Our goal is to take a new football direction with a new head coach for the 2024/25 season.’

‘Until then, every individual at the club is emphatically called upon to get the most out of the Champions League and Bundesliga. I also explicitly address the team about this.’
