Kane: Spurs have lost some of the values we had under Pochettino

Harry Kane has admitted Tottenham have lost some of the values which made them so competitive under former head coach Mauricio Pochettino, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports' Pat Davison.

Tottenham have endured a turbulent month which has seen them lose head coach Antonio Conte, football director Fabio Paratici and acting head coach Cristian Stellini, who was let go after last Sunday's harrowing 6-1 thrashing at Newcastle.

Spurs, whose wait for a trophy will now go into a 16th year, failed to win any silverware under Pochettino but were among the top-performing teams in the Premier League under the Argentine - failing to finish in the top four in just one of his five seasons - and reached the club's first Champions League final in 2019.

Chairman Daniel Levy turned to serial winners Jose Mourinho and Conte to end Spurs' trophyless run but now finds himself facing intense calls from fans to stand down with the top four now seemingly out of reach, the club in disarray and Pochettino expected to take over at rivals Chelsea in the summer.

Ahead of Sunday's tough return to action at Liverpool -Spurs' record scorer Kane reflects on a tough season, explains what's gone wrong at the club and looks at the next steps for recovery...

I think so. After the Newcastle game and going 2-0 down at half time it could have been easy to fold in the second half of the Man Utd game. We did the opposite; we came out fighting with desire and passion and a hunger to turn things around. In football many things can happen but we showed that we are together and we're a team.

I think Ryan Mason's done really great in a short space of time to get us feeling that way and, yeah, it was good. Of course, a draw is never what you're setting out to do, you're setting out to win but when you look at the circumstances it was a good hard-earned point in the end.
