I’ll Not Give Up On Harry Kane – Jose Mourinho

Kane showed up for Spurs in a half year against Manchester United on Friday, taking in an entire an hour and a half as the different sides played out a 1-1 attract north London.

The England worldwide was sidelined with a hamstring injury toward the beginning of January, and was a significant uncertainty for the remainder of the period before the coronavirus episode halted play in March.

The 26-year-old utilized the three-month break to get himself once again into top state of being, with the end goal of aiding Tottenham battle for a spot in the Premier League’s main four.

Kane was scrutinized for his stifled presentation in the impasse with United, yet Mourinho has protected his supernatural forward while promising he will be given constantly he needs to rediscover his best structure.

“Harry did amazing,” the Portuguese told Sky Sports . “I don’t think any player being six months without playing football and after an important surgery and after a very difficult period to recover because of the lockdown rules affected a lot the recovering of players, I think nobody could do better than what he did for the team.

“Seven goals in 10 matches [under Mourinho, prior to his injury] would give an average of 14 in 20. An average of 28 in 40. So we are there. But of course, now we have to wait.

“And just because of one game, in a fixture where the majority of the strikers in the Premier League struggle to show that sharpness, to show that quality that they all have, people only turn to Harry. Because Harry is special, because with Harry anything less than scoring a hat-trick is not good enough.

“But I’m not that way. I don’t analyse things that way. I’m very, very patient. He will have all the time he needs to recover to his normal level.”
