I Won’t Play that Game – Mourinho Reacts to Transfer Talk about Harry Kane

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he will not “play that game” of speculating on Harry Kane’s future.

According to him, Kane should “be happy with the moment he is living” for England and Spurs.

The 27-year-old striker stoked rumours he may consider leaving Tottenham after Euro 2020 when asked about reports linking him with a move to Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid.

“I’m fully focused on doing the job on the pitch from now until the end of the summer, and then we’ll see where we go from there,” Kane said in response.

However, Mourinho, speaking at a press conference on Friday, said: “I cannot play that game. I have to focus on what is for us.

“Of course I am always pleased when my players go to national teams and do well.

“So, I am happy that he does well for England, I am happy that England wins obviously. I cannot play that game of what the people say, what the people don’t say.

“I focus on what he did for us in the last match against Aston Villa, I focus on the effort that I saw him put on the pitch for England against Albania and Poland and I focus on the match against Newcastle when I’m pretty sure that playing very well, well, or not so well, scoring two, one or nil, he will be there for the team.”
