Kane Reveals How He Feels About Mourinho Sacking

Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane has explained how he feels about Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese tactician lost his job with the Lilywhites last week.

How Much Mourinho Has Earned From Sackings Revealed?

The 58-year-old was shown the door by chairman Daniel Levy last Monday, after a poor run of form and reports of in-fighting within the first-team squad.

Following his shock dismissal, it was suggested that certain senior players, including Kane, had become frustrated under Mourinho, with the striker later revealing he found out about the club's decision just 10 minutes before it was officially announced.

The 27-year-old has now insisted his relationship with Mourinho was a good one, however, saying he feels it is a "shame" it could not continue.

"He's a fantastic manager, he's managed the biggest players at the biggest clubs in the world," Kane said, according to Goal.

"He came in with a real understanding of what he wanted and we had good conversations early on that continued all the way through.

"In terms of style of play, I've always liked to drop deep and be involved, but the biggest change was making sure people were running in behind and using all the tools to try and exploit opposition weaknesses.

"We had a good relationship, I feel like my game's been evolving over the last three or four years anyway and it was just a good match-up.

Mourinho Rejects Job Offer?

"It was a shame we couldn't go on to better things or win any trophies, but I'll take the experience I had with him forward for the rest of my career."
