Harry Kane believes Mourinho has put his stamp on Spurs

Tottenham Hotspurs striker Harry Kane has said that it was hard for Jose Mourinho to make an impression on the side after taking over from sacked Mauricio Pochentino.

Mourinho struggled in his first months with the club as they were edged out of other competitions. Their main focus on the Premier League has seen them rise to 6th place on the log – the final spot for Europa League, should Arsenal win the FA Cup after defeating Manchester City in the semi-finals.

Kane believed that the club’s recent form is a sign that Mourinho’s methods are starting to bear fruit.

Mourinho began on a winning note with Spurs. He won further two matches in November to lift the mood around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But they struggled for consistency during winter when they failed to win six games without a win before coronavirus shutdown. During the period, they crashed out of both the Champions League and FA Cup, which ended hopes of lifting silverware this campaign.

Injuries later took their toll, with the likes of Kane and Son Heung-Min expected to miss the remainder of the campaign. But thanks to coronavirus break, the duo time returns to fitness and bolster the Spurs line-up.

This resulted in just one defeat in eight matches since the restart. Three successive victories lifted the club up to sixth and right in contention for a European place.

He, therefore, said that Mourinho’s message is finally starting to get across to his side after that indifferent start.

“It was hard for him Jose Mourinho to come in and put his stamp on things but we have been able to do that in the last three wins,” told Sky Sports.

Kane scored a brace in Tottenham’s 3-0 win against Champions League-chasing Leicester on Sunday. This took his tally for the season to 23 in all competitions this season. The brace was also his 15th and 16th career goals just 14 appearances against the Foxes, which is more than he’s scored against any opponent in his career.

“It’s must one of those teams I seem to score a few against. We caught them on the break today and once we got ahead we just steadied the ship. The clean sheet was great.”
