Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rafael Van der Vaart has admitted that he is hopeful Harry Kane will stay and win trophies at Spurs now that Jose Mourinho is in charge.
Van der Vaart played under Mourinho at Real Madrid before moving to Spurs in 2010.
The midfielder became a beloved figure during the two seasons he spent at White Hart Lane and has admitted since then he played some of the best football of his career in North London.
Kane, who was still with Tottenham’s youth set up during the Dutchman’s time at Spurs, has now risen to superstar status.
The striker ended the season in terrific form with five goals in his last three outings and Mourinho has admitted that he has got assurances that the England captain will be staying at the club (Football.London).
When asked about the 27-year-old’s future, Van der Vaart told Goal.com: “I really hope that he’s going to stay. I hope he’s going to stay. Spurs have a great coach.
“It’s a club that want to be a championship winner, and the Champions League. They can also pay the money. For me, the best thing is for Harry to stay.”

I believe one of the reasons Mourinho was an attractive candidate for Daniel Levy to go for was to help convince the likes of Kane and Son to commit their futures to the club. Not only is the appointment an ambitious one but Jose is the type of manager who usually gets his star players fully on-board and believing that the team is good enough to win trophies.
