Mourinho doesn’t ask us to sit back and defend, says Harry Kane


Tottenham’s striker, Harry Kane has defended his manager, Jose Mourinho from media attacks on his pragmatic playing style.

Analysts have suggested that Mourinho’s system doesn’t fully exploit the attacking talents in the Spurs team.

Harry Kane, speaking to BBC Match of the Day after their 3 – 1 win over Sheffield United, defended his manager from these attacks.

According to him, players have to take responsibility too.

“Fantastic performance from everyone today – started really well, aggressive with our press and were clinical to go 2-0 up. Even in the second half, when they scored, we didn’t panic,” he said.

“Tanguy [Ndombele} scored a fantastic goal and we saw the game out well, which we haven’t done in the past few weeks.

“It’s never been the manager saying that (we should sit back) it’s been us on the pitch having a mentality where we want to drop and hold on to to the win. The most important thing is us as players to go and take responsibility, and we did that today.

“Tanguy’s goal was incredible, the technique he had to flick that ball back over the keeper was truly special.

“There were a couple of chances I could have done better with, the most important thing is winning games. Anyone who can put a good spell together (is in the title race), that’s why it has been disappointing and frustrating for us dropping points from winning positions.”
