Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has hit back at comments from former Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas.
In an interview in the Evening Standard, AVB had said that Tottenham striker Kane might need to move on to win trophies.
His comments were fairly measured in that he acknowledged Kane would probably give Spurs a couple more years, but it’s a subject that Pochettino has grown tired of recently.
He said that he respected all the opinions but that himself and the players weren’t there just to develop and help the club, but also to win titles.
He said – again – that Kane is happy at Spurs and that he wants to win trophies at Tottenham – something he shares with the Spurs fans.
His quotes were reported by Football.London reporter Alasdair Gold at the pre-match press conference for the FA Cup clash v Huddersfield.
Poch on AVB's comments on Kane: "I respect all the opinions but we're here not only to develop, help the club and achieve what the club wants, if it's possible to win titles. Harry is happy here, of course he wants to win titles like us & our supporters." https://t.co/0k9MqqUx0q

The match against Rochdale is an unwelcome one for Pochettino and the players, coming just three days before their next Premier League match with Huddersfield.
However, it’s one that could lead them one step closer to their first trophy under Pochettino and while the manager has said he will rotate, it’s a game he will really want to win.
