Tottenham star Harry Kane has backed Jose Mourinho after the boss dismissed suggestions that he would not thrive under his management.
The England captain scored Spurs’ second goal in their 2-0 victory over West Ham at home on Tuesday night.
In the build-up to the match Mourinho insisted there was no reason for the striker to quit Tottenham following pundit Paul Merson’s claims about his negative style hastening Kane’s exit and after netting his first goal since recovering from a hamstring injury Kane said he has no issue with their style of play under Mourinho.
“I’ve got no problem with how the manager plays. He’s here to win, we’re here to win games… obviously this season, to get into the Champions League and next season to progress and try to win something,” Kane told the BBC.
“People, pundits have their opinions.
“In terms of how I feel, I feel really good. I’m positive, in really good shape and like I say, I can only do what I do and try not to listen to the noise outside.”
Kane struck in the 82nd minute after an own goal from Tomas Soucek had given Spurs the lead at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
It was Spurs’ first win in eight matches in all competitions, lifting them to seventh in the league, six points off fourth-placed Chelsea.
