The England and Tottenham star has hailed Jose Mourinho as one of the best coaches in the world. Kane also threw a light on comparisons between Mourinho and Pochettino.
Harry Kane is suffering another disappointing season with Tottenham where they were knocked out of the Champions League last 16. To add to it, this time fight for the top 4 is also out of hands, with Europa League the best they can get. It is surprising to see a team which went to the Champions League final last year, struggling with form.
Kane, however, has backed the Portuguese Mourinho to help fulfil the potential of this Tottenham team. Pochettino was replaced by Jose Mourinho after an unconvincing start to the season. However, the Portuguese has managed a win ratio of only 43.75% in 32 games in charge of the club. The figure is Mourinho’s lowest at all the clubs he has managed.
On the comparisons between Poch and Mourinho, the England captain said, “They are definitely two different styles of manager. It has been great (to work with them).”
Kane was full praise of Mourinho saying, “Obviously we have had a long period where I was out injured doing rehab. Having to watch the team from the side-lines, we have had a long time to get to know each other with Covid-19. We have built a good relationship and we talk often.”
“Mourinho wants to win, he is here to win. Obviously, there are no trophies to play for this season but next season that’s his aim. Everything is about winning, and he’s made it clear. There have been times where we have not played welL. We have won the game and at the end of the day three points is the most important thing,” Kane added.
The Spurs captain said that Mourinho will be able to get to know the players more in pre-season. “I think he is looking forward, going into next season, having a bit more time to work with the boys in pre-season and getting to know them more. He is great to work under and it is another opportunity for me to learn off one of the best managers in the world. I am taking it all in and learning as fast as I can.”
