Mauricio Pochettino: 'Harry Kane wouldn't lie about goal'

Adjust Comment Print

Mauricio Pochettino has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he's provided a team news and injury update ahead of the game. He's in Qatar doing his rehab.

"We hope after that period he can come back fixing his problem and try again to be in the group training". It's normal that he was a little bit disappointed [by the reaction] because of course Harry Kane and all of our players have Twitter, Instagram, everything. Harry is an individual that all the time places in entrance or forward the collective earlier than himself.

"All strikers want to score and they have their skill - they are aggressive, they have this determination, like other strikers".

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keeping an eye on Kenedy and his performances for Newcastle United as they are apparently interested in a move for him in the summer, according to HITC.

There doesn't seem to be much of an issue between Eriksen and Kane over the goal, so it's kind of moot. No-one's talked about that this week inside the club. But I promise, it's not a big deal.

Seventh-placed Burnley and Leicester, clash at Turf Moor on Saturday in a game that could go a long way to determining who gets the final Europa League place. For me I am more than happy if Christian scored twice or Harry or Dele Alli.

Kane's successful appeal of what initially appeared to be team-mate Eriksen's goal has been met with surprise, including from Salah.

"I care about the goal because it provided us the three points but all that happens after is more players' decisions or the club's decision", he added.

Tottenham are unbeaten in the league since a 4-1 defeat by City at the Etihad in December.
