Harry Kane has played down talk that the Tottenham Hotspur players are being worked too hard in training by Mauricio Pochettino and the backroom staff.
The striker appeared alongside his manager at Hotspur Way as part of a press conference ahead of tomorrow’s Champions League clash with Red Star Belgrade.
The Mail had reported that Tottenham players are blaming their poor start to the season on Mauricio Pochettino increasing the intensity of their training sessions.
The suggested that members of his squad are unhappy over the increased intensity and duration of training sessions and a lack of time off to recuperate in between matches.
Kane was posed the question by the media and laughed off the speculation by insisting that the players have worked hard in training since Pochettino took over in North London and rumours are purely a result of the club’s poor recent form.
The 26-year-old who is captaining the side in the absence of Hugo Lloris will be looking to fire Spurs to their first win in the Champions League against the Serbians.
Kane, sat next to Pochettino, when asked about if Spurs are being worked too hard in training: "There is going to be speculation when things aren't going well, from the outside. We work hard every day, we have worked hard since the manager has been here" #THFC #COYS
