Kane is one of the best strikers ever in the Premier League – Pochettino

Spurs Manager, Mauricio Pochettino was full of praises for his in-form striker, Harry Kane who notched his 100th Premier League goal in Tottenham’s 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

The England International stepped up to score from the penalty spot with the last kick of the game after previously missing from the spot a few moments earlier to seal his place in history among the League’s very best in front of goal.

His Manager, Pochettino was quick to praise the consistent forward for the newly achieved feat: “He’s one of the best strikers. He can miss a penalty or a chance but he has the personality.”

“To score 100 Premier League goals, it is because you have big, big balls. It is no easy feat, it can only be achieved by the best of bests.”

Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp has earlier commented about the game’s officiating which he believed to be below par especially after two penalties were given against his side. However, Pochettino claimed that the referee has a really good game.

“I congratulated him, to show the character that they (officials) showed in this moment,” he added.

“It was difficult to know if they were right at this moment and then in the dressing room I confirmed they were right in every single decision.

“Sometimes you complain about them, me no because I decided a long time ago to stop complaining about referees.

“But when they are right and show character, I think it is important to recognize and congratulate them because they have a difficult job.”


I am happy in North London but Spurs need to start winning trophies – Kane

England International, Harry Kane has stated that he is very happy in North London at the moment with Tottenham although he did mention that the earlier the club starts to win trophies, the better.

Kane, who had an astounding year in 2017 has always been reported to be on Real Madrid’s wanted list and his Manager, Mauricio Pochettino having seen how Coutinho’s transfer saga finally played out has earlier stated that Spurs might not be able to stop the 24-year old striker should Madrid come knocking.

However, the former Southampton Manager has admonished his red-hot striker to learn from Francesco Totti’s career loyalty to Roma and Kane has also responded that he has no plan to leave Spurs although he and his teammates have to start winning trophies to match his ambition.

While speaking with The Daily Telegraph after their 3:0 FA Cup third round win over AFC Wimbledon, Kane said: “We’ve been close in the league the last couple of years, but the aim of the game is to win trophies and that’s what we’ve got to try and do,”

“We’re still in the Champions League and the FA Cup and we know Champions League will be tough so the FA Cup is one we have a good chance in. We’ll be one of the favourites.

“We want to win a trophy somehow and the FA Cup is a competition we’re looking at to do that. It’s always been a fantastic competition and obviously there’s been a lot of talk over the years about people resting players but that’s just the nature of the game now – there are so many games and squads are so good, you can rest players, so for us whatever the gaffer chooses we’ll be ready to play.

“I think this year especially with the league, kind of being out of contention – of course, we want to finish in the top four, but there’s a chance for us to win a competition so we’ll see.

“Obviously once the Champions League starts there’s going to be a lot of games, but I think we’ve got a good enough squad to rotate like we did at the weekend, not everyone but a few here and there and get the job done.”
