Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane and former manager Mauricio Pochettino have kept in close contact ever since the Argentinian was sacked by the club back in 2019.

Pochettino took over at Spurs in the summer of 2014 and oversaw one of the most positive periods in the club’s recent history. During his time in North London, the 50-year-old manager helped develop players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Heung-min Son and was a popular figure among the squad.

In 293 games as Spurs manager, Pochettino won 160, drew 60, and lost 73 to produce a win rate of 54.6% (Transfermarkt). The highlight of his reign was reaching the 2019 Champions League final, where Spurs would ultimately fall to Liverpool.

Pochettino was sacked just six months later in November 2019, but his affinity with Tottenham has remained to this day. The Argentine coach is still a well-respected figure among large portions of the fanbase, and it would seem, among the players he used to manage.

It has been revealed by The Telegraph that Spurs star Harry Kane has kept in touch with Pochettino since he was sacked. The news emerges after Pochettino told The Athletic he would be interested in taking on the England job after Gareth Southgate.

It makes sense that the two would remain close, given how Pochettino helped to give Kane his breakthrough at Spurs. His spell in North London saw Kane win two Premier League Golden Boots under Pochettino and the pair shared a great working relationship and mutual respect.

It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Pochettino and Kane keep in touch, and it’s quite nice to know that there’s still that relationship there. Hopefully, we can see them reunite one day, though I hope it’s with England rather than Spurs, as we have a brilliant manager in Antonio Conte already at the club.
