Tottenham star Harry Kane opens up on Jose Mourinho mentality
In an interview with BT Sport (h/t Evening Standard), Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane opened up on his relationship with new manager Jose Mourinho and the Portuguese tactician’s winning mentality.
Mourinho took over the reins at the club back in November, after Mauricio Pochettino was sacked. Things improved early on under Jose. But the team’s form plummeted since the turn of the year owing to injuries to key players, including Kane himself.
Since the restart of the season though, Spurs have shown some mettle, winning three and losing one of the six league games. A place in the Europa League is still on the line, even though the chances are fairly slim at the moment.
In his interview, Kane shed some light on the mentality Mourinho brings to the table. He claimed that the Portuguese wants to lead the club to silverware next season. (h/t Evening Standard)
“He wants to win, he’s 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 that clear.”
There had been questions from some quarters (read Paul Merson) over whether Kane will be able to succeed under Mourinho, given his pragmatic style of play. Kane, though, insisted that he has no problems whatsoever with the manager, further stating that he shares a good relationship with him. (h/t Evening Standard)
“Obviously we’ve had a long period where I was out injured doing rehab, having to watch the team from the sidelines. And we’ve had a long time to get to know each other with Covid-19. We’ve built up a good relationship and we talk very often.”

Kane hasn’t been quite at his best since returning from his lengthy injury layoff. Hopefully, the England captain steps up in the remaining matches and fires us to European football.
