Tottenham Hotspur have had to contend with more than a congested football calendar this winter season, as the mainstream media has also been heavily linking their manager with a move away.
Ever since Jose Mourinho was sacked at Manchester United, Mauricio Pochettino has been linked with the full-time job (Express).
The Red Devils eventually named Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as interim manager for the rest of the season, but could well come in with an approach for Poch come the summer.
Spurs have been shutting down any questions relating to the matter in recent press conferences, but Harry Kane did respond to one persistent journalist this week.
The Tottenham striker insisted that the squad had entire faith in the manager, and he seemed to expect the club to move forward as a complete unit, staff and players included.
Spurs’ impressive form over the last five years has been built on this settled squad.
Kane said (Telegraph): “We are fully behind the manager. We love the way he works. We’ve built a great team and a great unit over the last three or four years. It’s down to us to continue that and take another step forward if we can.
“It’s about turning that into a trophy. We are at the stage now where we have a mature team. We are not young any more. It’s important we keep ourselves at this high level, at the top.”
