Report: Tottenham star has kept in really close contact with Mauricio Pochettino ever since he was sacked

Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane has kept in really close contact with his former boss Mauricio Pochettino ever since he was sacked, according to the Telegraph

The Argentine oversaw arguably Tottenham’s most successful period in the Premier League era, guiding them to a Champions League final and consistent top-four finishes. 

Spurs also challenged for the Premier League title between 2015 and 2017, but narrowly missed out on both occasions. 

Kane’s rise to the top came under Pochettino too, with the 29-year-old picking up two Golden Boot awards during his tenure. 

And it seems that after working together for over five years, the pair have stayed in contact ever since.

Kane had kept in close contact with Pochettino 

The Telegraph reports that Kane and Pochettino have kept in close contact ever since the 50-year-old was sacked by Tottenham back in 2019. 

The Argentine was replaced by Jose Mourinho after a poor start to the 2019-20 campaign. 

He had led Spurs to the Champions League final just five months before, but was sitting 14th in the Premier League at the time. 

It’s no surprise to hear that Kane has remained in contact with his former boss after the pair built a special relationship in north London.

Pochettino told the Athletic today that he would be ‘open’ to the idea of succeeding Gareth Southgate as England boss one day. 

Kane would certainly be behind the idea of Pochettino managing his national side, in the event that Southgate ever left the role. 

The pair seem destined to reunite at some stage of their careers, with Pochettino admitting that he would love to return to north London one day

But for now, Kane will be fully focused on the World Cup and will be aiming to go one better under Southgate this year. 

He’s also working under a top-class boss in Antonio Conte at club level and will be hoping the Italian is the right man to end Spurs’ trophy drought.
