‘Tottenham know Harry Kane better than anyone else,’ Mauricio Pochettino insists


no concern

Questions have been raised over the England striker’s form and fitness following a hectic summer schedule

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino insists he is not worried by Harry Kane’s performances so far this season.

Former England coach Gary Neville has led the calls for Kane to be given a rest after a below-par performance for his country against Spain last week.

The England captain also appeared to labour through the first few games of the new season, even though he scored two goals in four games.

Pochettino, though, says he knows Kane better than anyone.

The Argentinian said: “He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it’s maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best.

“It’s not that I want to justify him, it’s only because the period during the season always change.

“The most thing here is the confidence and trust we have in him. There’s no doubt that he’s one of the best strikers or players in England and in Europe.

“No doubt with Harry but because Harry’s so big a player everyone expects him in every single action for him to do something different.

“That’s why the expectations and perspective are completely different to another player.

“It’s our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well I think we do.

“We know Harry Kane very well in the last more than four years we work with him. We know that it’s not a situation that worries us.

“We are in a situation that is under control.”
