Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane has wished Mauricio Pochettino well in his new role as Chelsea manager – though hopes the Blues still finish below Spurs.

Speaking to Reuters, Kane said: “Mauricio was an amazing manager for me. Great person, great, great coach.

“He helped me a lot to get to where I am now. So I’m really appreciative of him.”

On Pochettino’s move to Chelsea, which has not gone down at all well with Tottenham supporters, he continued: “Everyone has their career, everyone has their future. So all I can say is I wish him all the best.

“I hope he does well – just obviously not as well as us!”
