Last week, about 10 hours after the sacking of Mauricio Pochettino, who had been in charge of the Lilywhites for five years, Mourinho was announced as the club's new manager, much to the surprise of many supporters.

With the Portuguese tactician having won his first two games as Spurs boss, there appears to be a positive and relaxed atmosphere around the club, one that Kane definitely feels too.

"It's early days, we have a good relationship so far, we talk, we try and help the team," the England star said, according to Sky Sports.

"Obviously, me being one of the leaders in the team, he looks to me for feelings and advice on the team.

"When you are winning games, it definitely helps your relationship. Hopefully we can build a strong relationship.

"We know we both want to win big competitions. That's the team's aim, that's my aim and that is the manager's aim. Hopefully I can help him do that this year and see where we can go.

"He's a new manager, he's been here less than a week, he's had two games. So far, it's been all about trying to save the energy, not trying to work too much with the players because of the games.

"But we obviously have a long season ahead so I am sure we will get to know each other well over the next few weeks and implement what he wants on our team.

"But at the end of the day, it's two wins out of two, positive start so let's hope it continues."
