When Jose Mourinho arrived at Spurs, he brought the elite mentality that is always associated with him. He quickly had Spurs playing well and got them to the top of the Premier League table, where they stayed for many weeks. The Portuguese manager eventually fell out with several players he claimed were lazy.
It seemed that Harry Kane agreed with him as the sack of Mourinho five days to the Carabao Cup final irked him so much. It led to the Englishman desiring to leave the club in the summer. Mourinho had helped the partnership of Harry Kane and Heung Min Son to their best year yet.
Something turned on him in the summer. He spoke glowingly of Jose Mourinho to Gary Neville on The Overlap, but he has still not found his mojo back.
The transfer saga that involved Harry Kane, Tottenham and Manchester City in the summer is in the public domain.
It was unclear what the future held for Kane, despite a brilliant Euros where England came close to winning. Manchester City were interested in the player willing to join them, but Daniel Levy dug in, insisting on no sale.
The striker has since seen his form drop following his public declaration of a desire to leave Tottenham.
Kane is still trying to get over the saga that he sees as a betrayal. He claimed that there was a gentleman’s agreement reneged on by Daniel Levy.
Gary Neville said that Kane must have felt like the tables had been switched on him but insisted that Kane had to fulfil his end of the bargain.
According to Harry Kane, as cited by The Mirror, it is always a difficult moment after a major tournament. The striker referred to his last two major competitions where he reached a final and a semifinal, and he opined that it was draining. He claims that it takes a lot out of a player, both physically and mentally.
The time left after every tournament before the new season kicks off is short. Kane feels that the time left after every competition is not enough to assimilate what happened. He feels players need more time to do a proper assessment of themselves. For him, everything gets a bit crazy, and sometimes it is about getting used to the situation and getting with the programme as soon as possible. Kane also believes that the players play too many games throughout the year with little time to recover. He concluded by saying, He tried to get on the training pitch and work on a few things to get back to what is best. Harry Kane has scored a solitary Premier League goal this season.
