Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, has been singing the praises of Jose Mourinho ahead of this weekend’s clash with Man City, crediting his boss with improving his game.
Kane has started the season in explosive form alongside Heung-Min Son at the top of the pitch. The pair head into the game with City this weekend in fine form and will be looking for another win to potentially send Spurs top.
Mourinho, normally known for his defensive play, has transformed Tottenham into an attacking force like no other in the Premier League at the moment. Their 19 goals being second to only Chelsea thus far.
And Kane, speaking to PA as reported by the Evening Standard, believes Mourinho deserves credit for overseeing that transformation.
“It’s been great to have him, just at the training ground, on the training field. Just learning and seeing how he goes about his business, seeing how he deals with different situations and problems, so that’s all been great to learn,” Kane said.
“I think he saw in my game that I like to drop deep so he made it clear to the others – like Sonny, Stevie, Bale, Lamela, Lucas, all these players – that if I do drop deep then they need to be the ones running in behind. I think that’s been the real difference. It’s allowed me to create space and get the ball but have an option going forward as well.”
Kane has surpassed 200 goals this season for Spurs. He’s also setting up plenty as well, with the England skipper already laying eight Premier League goals on for teammates.
Mourinho, then, deserves the credit that Kane is hinting at here.

Mourinho has positioned Tottenham here to be real contenders and there is every chance they could snaffle the Premier League title if Kane can continue this remarkable run of form.
The England man has been fantastic and looks unstoppable alongside Son. With Bale still to get to his best, things are really looking up for Spurs and Mourinho might well just get his hands on the title once again here.
