Harry Kane is hoping that proven winner Jose Mourinho can help Tottenham Hotspur win trophies after taking over from Mauricio Pochettino at the managerial helm.
The Portuguese is back in management, 11 months after parting ways with Manchester United and got off to a winning start as Spurs boss with a 3:2 win away to West Ham on Saturday in their first away win since January.
Kane supported Pochettino in his time at the club and gave him credit for molding him into one of the best center-forwards in the world, He also paid a visit to the Argentine’s home after his dismissal.
“It’s a week I’ve never really had in my career before,” said the England captain.
“It was a big shock on Tuesday night for everyone, the players included, and then it was a quick turnaround.
“All of a sudden we’ve got a new manager, one of the best managers there’s been in the game, so automatically you have to turn your head towards that and focus on the game.”
Kane has been eager to win silverware with Tottenham and hopes that Jose Mourinho, previously a manager at Chelsea and Manchester United can help him achieve his goals.
“The gaffer’s won at every club he’s gone to — there’s no hiding away from that,” Kane said.
“He wants to win. He’s a proven winner. I’ve made it clear that I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win trophies.
“I’ve made it clear I want to win them here and it’s a big year for us.”
He added that Mourinho’s reputation for winning silverware has also given the players more confidence.
“It’s almost a fresh slate for everyone now to show the manager what they can do and hopefully the players can thrive on that,” he said.
