  • Harry Kane made no secret of his feelings towards his former manager joining a bigger club

Harry Kane has made clear his feelings towards former manager, Mauricio Pochettino after the Argentine was announced as the new coach of Chelsea.

The former Spurs boss has started working behind the scenes at the Blues already but will officially resume on July 1, when meets a club in disarray and begging for stability.

Kane and Poch worked together at Tottenham for five years, with the English striker winning two Premier League golden boots and reaching the 2019 UEFA Champions League final during that time.

However, they failed to win a trophy together, losing in two finals before the manager was dismissed.

Pochettino went on to win his first competition as manager of Paris Saint-Germain after the north Londoners showed him the door.

Kane wishes Pochettino luck

Tottenham and Chelsea are seen as rivals in looser terms because the gap in success between the two clubs over the last two decades has been massive.

Pochettino faces a task of rebuilding his reputation in English football after his time at Spurs ended trophyless, and his former striker has wished him luck.

“Mauricio was an amazing manager for me. Great person; great, great coach. Helped me a lot to get to where I am now. So I’m really appreciative of him,” Kane told Reuters.

The 29-year-old is yet to win a trophy in his career despite being England and Tottenham’s all-time top scorer, prompting many to advise him to exit in search of greener pastures.

Mirror UK reports that Manchester United have made him their priority target - with the striker favouring a move to Old Trafford and reportedly rejecting an offer from Bayern Munich.

Details of Pochettino’s Chelsea contract

Sports Brief also reported that Chelsea avoided a Graham Potter mistake with the contract length handed out to their new boss, Pochettino.

The Blues gave their former manager a five-year contract worth £12 million per year, only to dismiss him seven months after his signing.

Chelsea have avoided the same mistake with the contract given to Pochettino, giving him a two-year deal with an option of a further year.
