Harry Kane has made it clear to friends that under-fire Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has his full support, Football Insider has learned.
The Spurs talisman’s position is regarded as pivotal by the club hierarchy as a season that promised threatens to fizzle out.
A Tottenham source told Football Insider that Kane has made it clear behind the scenes that Mourinho has his full backing and the manager’s methods can spearhead a revival.
The prospect of Mourinho losing his job after just 16 months has been mooted on the back of a dramatic slide down the league table.
Tottenham have collected 16 points in 14 league games following Saturday’s defeat to Man City and lost four games out of five in all competitions.
Chairman Daniel Levy is likely to sound out key dressing room figures when assessing the mood of the camp, notably Kane and skipper Hugo Lloris.
They are the two most influential and respected players at the club, as well as two of the most experienced.
Kane is certainly the outstanding individual and the seemingly over-reliance on his talents as well as ability to stay fit is a growing concern among supporters.
The striker has privately made it clear that he is fully on board with Mourinho’s methods.
Crucially, Kane’s own form has barely suffered despite the team facing an uphill battle to secure a top-four finish.
The targets for this season are placing in next season’s Champions League and ending the club’s lengthy trophy drought.
Tottenham are eighth in the league, four points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool.
They will face Pep Guardiola’s high-flying Man City in the League Cup final at Wembley on 25 April.
