Harry Kane has shot back at Paul Merson’s suggestion that the striker will not enjoy playing under Jose Mourinho.
Merson insisted that the England captain is unlikely to get chances to score the number of goals that he usually does under the Portuguese coach (Sky Sports).
This was a suggestion that Jose Mourinho hit back at in his pre-match press conference before the London derby against West Ham (Football.London).
Kane made his point on the pitch on Tuesday as he found the back of the net against the Hammers to help the Lilywhites to a 2-0 win.
After the game, the striker admitted that he had no issues with the way in which Mourinho plays and insisted that he will continue to ignore the noise that comes from pundits.

"I've got no problem with how the manager plays."

Spurs Web Opinion
I see no reason why Kane would have an issue playing the way Jose wants to do. In fact, if one looks at it objectively, we have not been a free-flowing team who create lots of chances since 2017. Even over the last couple of years under Pochettino, we had become a counter-attacking team who were content to sit back rather than press high up the pitch. Besides, I still think we created enough chances both against Man Utd as well as West Ham. Kane has already won multiple golden boots and has been pretty vocal about now wanting to win trophies and titles. I am sure he will be more than receptive to Jose’s ideas, given what the Spurs boss has achieved in the game.
