Speaking to The London Evening Standard Mauricio Pochettino has praised Harry Kane’s ability to play as part of a unit, despite his talismanic reputation.
Harry has 35 goals in all competitions for the club so far this season, and while he could not add to that tally in Saturday’s win over Huddersfield, he still played a key role when he sent in a wonderful, sweeping cross to setup Heung-min Son’s second goal highlighted just how far the 24-year-old has come in terms of his ability working in a unit.
Kane’s goal scoring exploits often overshadows his work as a team player, which Pochettino feels is a vital part of his game.
“Of course, you need a good mentality and willingness to work”:he said “What the offensive players like is to have the ball and shoot and score goals, and then when they need to work and run in behind to the ball and try to chase the opponent, put pressure on, that is the more difficult part to teach, to make them available to run for the team.
He added: “But of course, we are so happy with him and everyone.”
Kane prides himself on working within a team, ranking his goalless performance against Real Madrid at Wembley as one of his best in this remarkable season.
