Harry Kane admitted to visiting Mauricio Pochettino right after the Argentine got sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.
Like many Spurs fans, Kane was shocked by the news of Pochettino getting fired after all that he had accomplished at North London.
“I’ve been to see him,” the star forward told UK newspapers. “I went around his house and caught up with him the next day. It was a shock for everyone, so I wanted to go and see him and we had a chat for a couple of hours, and it was nice to do that before the new manager came in.
“It’s been a week I’ve never really had in my career before. A big shock on Tuesday night for everyone, the players included. And then it was a quick turnaround all of a sudden we got a new manager, one of the best managers there has been in the game.”
Pochettino was replaced by Jose Mourinho who guided Tottenham to a 2-3 away victory over West Ham United in his first game in charge. Speaking about the new boss, Kane said, “The gaffer has won every club he has gone to, there’s no hiding away from that. He wants to win, he’s a proven winner. I’ve made it clear that I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win trophies, I’ve made it clear I want to win them here and it’s a big year for this.
“Realistically, we look at the Champions League and the FA Cup to try to do that. We will see how that goes and, from my point of view, I will keep doing what I’m doing and keep fighting for this club on the pitch.”
