Jose Mourinho urges Tottenham to prove they are not a one-man team in Kane absence

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has called upon his players to prove that they are not a one-man team in the absence of Harry Kane.

The 27-year-old Tottenham talisman picked up an ankle injury in the defeat to Liverpool last week. As a result, Kane missed the subsequent games against Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea both of which ended in defeats for Mourinho’s men.

Without Kane, the team looked devoid of any sort of idea and inspiration in the attacking third in both the games. The likes of Son Heung-min, Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, Carlos Vinicius and Gareth Bale all failed to spark.

And ahead of Tottenham’s next game against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday noon, Mourinho has urged his players to step up and prove themselves in Kane’s absence.

 “A team is not a player. A team cannot depend on a player. Other players, they have to step up. ‘That’s the reality of things. But there are players that are special players in different teams.

“And for sure Harry is very important for us. He leads. He creates. He has dynamics of closed eyes with Sonny for example. But of course, other guys they have to step up to be honest.”

Mourinho further added that he was happy with the efforts put in by Carlos Vinicius against Chelsea earlier in the week even though the Brazilian missed a late chance to equalise.

“(Carlos) Vinicius tried his best against Chelsea, he couldn’t score his goal. I’m happy with him, period, I don’t want to say much more. I’m happy with his effort.”

Without Kane, it was always expected that performances would dip. However, in the names mentioned above there is plenty of quality in our attacking unit. And it is up to Mourinho to set the team up in a way that he can extract the best out of them.
