Nuno Espirito Santo has this afternoon sat down to face the media for the first time since being appointed as Tottenham Hotspur’s new head coach.
It took Spurs 72 days which included plenty of twists and turns to end their managerial search and find a successor for Jose Mourinho, who was dismissed by Daniel Levy in April.
Pre-match press conferences continue to take place on the Zoom video conferencing with current rules surrounding coronavirus pandemic meaning that journalists currently not attend Hotspur Way in person.
It did not long for the press to pose the question of Harry Kane’s future to the Portuguese and insisted that he is a Tottenham player.
The 47-year-old insisted that rather than add fuel to the fire of the England captain’s future, it is time for Kane to rest following his Euro 2020 campaign and plans to sit down and talk with the forward upon his return to the club.
Nuno did hint that Kane needs to be prepared to accept what the club’s decision could be by suggesting that the marksman needs to be prepared for what is to come.
Sky Sports claimed in May that Kane had once again told the club of his desire to leave this summer.
Nuno told Football.London: “Harry is our player. No need to talk about anything else. Period. Now is the time for Harry to recover his energy and rest. When he returns is the time to talk. He needs to prepare for what’s to come.”
