‘Harry Kane is a killer!’


Obsessed

Argentine boss gives his take on the ups and downs up his striker after talk of a goal drought

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has branded striker Harry Kane ‘a killer’ but believes his obsession with goals could be holding him back.

The Spurs star netted twice against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League to hand them a lifeline in the competition.

And the brace came on the back of a goal against Wolverhampton Wanderers which ended a three-game domestic drought.
But Pochettino believes sometimes Kane is too determined to break such streaks it can be to detriment of his game.

“He is a killer, an assassin, a killer,” the Argentinian said.

“He always in practice in everything he wants to kill the keeper, everything.

“He wants to score, he is so determined to score goals.

“That is why sometimes when he doesn’t score he is so obsessed with scoring, that sometimes it is against him because sometimes you need more freedom, not to be obsessed.

“But he is going to learn because I think he is now starting to be really mature because he is still young.

“I am not surprised because he is so determined and in training you need to stop him training because he always wants to train, to improve and it is amazing.”

Kane has made a mockery of the talk of an early-season drought by scoring eight goals in his next 11 games.

Pochettino is baffled why a player who has proven himself at the highest level is so quick to attract criticism.

“In England you have some very good things here but there are things you need to improve with your own players,” he said.

“Kane is English and sometimes you push him to the sky and paradise and then you put him on the outside.

“Now after six years here I understand a little bit. It is true.

“If Harry Kane is Italian and playing for the Italian side he will be a bit more protected because the Italian people are more protective of their players.

“It is difficult to push but when they are there they try to keep up there.

“It’s similar in Spain. Here it is more up and down.

“You score you are the best. If you didn’t score no … you are criticised. That is the problem.”
