Harry Kane is a fantastic player, one of the best strikers, it’s difficult to find words to describe him – he’s unbelievable, so professional, the effort when we don’t have the ball, everything is fantastic – so professional,” Pochettino sid.
The Argentine coach also hailed his team’s diaplay against the Reds at Wembley Stadium, in front of the legendary Diego Maradona and NBA great Kobe Bryant.
“It was fantastic, a fantastic performance, the players were fantastic and we started very well,” Pochettino said.
“I am so happy for our fans, in front of Diego Maradona, Kobe Bryant… a fantastic day for us.
“Many things were pleasing this afternoon – the commitment of the players, the way that we play, the fans were fantastic, Wembley starts to feel home, that we can win here and the confidence is so important for us.
“It is important to try to play football, don’t give them space. If you open the channel we will concede a goal, we made a mistake but I think it was a foul before that on Harry Kane.
“We are very pleased because we played well.”
