Son Heung-min liked a post on social media which claimed that Harry Kane is not bigger than Tottenham after the England captain failed to turn up for pre-season training this week.
Kane had revealed his desire to leave Spurs and was linked with a move to Premier League champions, Manchester City. However, the club have made it clear that they have no intention of letting their best player leave this summer.
Eagle-eyed Spurs fans caught Son liking a post on Instagram that pointed out that Kane has not won anything during his time at the club, and that no player is bigger than the club.
"A player is never bigger than a club. 'Harry Kane FC' has 0 Trophies. Tottenham Hotspur has 26 Trophies," the post said. "It is understood that Harry Kane does not want to remain at Spurs following a lack of success, however his attitude and methods of attempting to force a transfer, are disrespectful. Kane has the right to leave yet not to take about it in this matter!"
The post has a photo of Kane next to an image of Bill Nicholson - the club's most successful manager - with the caption '0 major trophies' under Kane and '26 major trophies' under Nicholson.
Unlike Kane, Son committed his future to Tottenham earlier this summer and signed a new four-year contract extension. The 29-year-old, alongside Kane, has been the club's standout performer of late, scoring 107 goals in 280 games and contributing 64 assists.
