Jose Mourinho has a chance to bring the trophy to Tottenham for the first time in 13 years, but that won't be so easy. In the League Cup final, they will play against Manchester City, in other competitions, they dropped out of the race for silver.
That also brought into question the fate of Harry Kane in north London, but the Portuguese does not want to get involved in those stories. The Spurs are visiting Newcastle in the 30th round of the Premier League. Before the duel with the Magpies, Mourinho spoke to the media, and one of the main topics was Kane.
After another season that threatens to be unsuccessful, the 27-year-old football player will have a big dilemma. He is expected to make a decision after the European Championship on whether to stay at the club. "I don't want to play that game.
We have to focus on what he represents to us. Of course, I'm always happy when my players play for their national teams, but I can't play that game." "I can only focus on what he's doing for us and the effort he put in against Villa, in the England jersey.
The effort he is willing to put in the game against Newcastle and whether he will be there for the team no matter how he plays. " The answer of the Portuguese expert did not satisfy the journalists, but Mourinho did not "change the plate"
"I want Harry to continue to be what he has been for us. I want him to play against Newcastle as against Aston Villa, with the same desire, team spirit, and leadership skills, and I know I will get that from him."
The captain of the English national team is playing in great form this competitive year. He is at the top of the list of scorers in the Premier League with Mohamed Salah (17 goals), and under Mourinho's leadership, he added another strong weapon to his attacking arsenal: he started regularly connecting players with goals, so he also recorded 13 assists.
Tottenham is facing a fight for the League Cup trophy, as well as a place in the Champions League, and Kane is undoubtedly thinking about the upcoming European Championship. Because of all the above, the Portuguese believe that a great striker must dedicate himself to the present, and not to speculations about the future.
"I can't tell you if there is always a smile on his face. What I know is that he is a professional. I am very pleased to have him at my disposal and happy when I see him and the other guys in the national team jersey, especially when they achieve a positive result."
"He has a very good period in the club and the national team, and a nice challenge until the end of the season. He has finals, matches in the Premier League in which he must fight for every point, and then the European Championship and the opportunity to play in the final at Wembley. He must be satisfied with the current situation. "
