Harry Kane has refused to comment on whether a potential return to Tottenham Hotspur for Mauricio Pochettino would make him more likely to stay at the club.

Kane described the Argentine as a ‘great friend’ but was reluctant to say anything further about his future in North London.

Pochettino has been heavily linked with a return to Tottenham with reports claiming that the 49-year-old has told Paris Saint-Germain that he wishes to depart this summer and is interested in returning to his former employer (Alasdair Gold).

Kane was asked in an interview which was conducted at the end of the Premier League season by ES Magazine if the prospect of Pochettino back at the club would sway his decision, to which he replied: “No comment”.

Kane revealed that he was supporting PSG in their quest to win the Champions League before they were eliminated at the semi-final stage to Manchester City.

The striker expressed his admiration over his Pochettino was a leader for his squad in how they conducted themselves on the training pitch and also on a match day.

Kane admitted that their friendship also extended to beyond the matters involving the football club.

He added: “We got so close to winning it with Mauricio,”

“I would love to see him win it. We had a great relationship. He is a great person, a great friend.

“He was the boss, the leader, the one that set the standards in how we played and how we trained. So friendship would never get in the way of what he did on the football side of things.

“But we became friends in that the things we did and talked about went beyond football.”
