Harry Kane revealed that he learned about Jose Mourinho’s sacking only minutes before it was announced. He admitted that he was surprised by it. Harry Kane was one of the few players who commented on Jose Mourinho’s sacking on social media. He rejected any suggestions of player revolt and even said that he had a “great relationship” with Mourinho.
“I was surprised (by Mourinho’s sacking) – I’ll be totally honest,” Kane said. “I came in that morning and probably found out 5-10 minutes before it was announced.”
“A lot of the focus was on the Carabao Cup final and preparing for that but, look, it’s football. I’ve been here now where a couple of managers have been sacked and, as a player now, I don’t think you ever expect the boss to be sacked but it’s part of the game, you have to deal with it,” he added. “I had a great relationship with Jose, I wish him all the best for whatever his next job is, but he knows as we know football can be cut-throat and we just have to look forward. We have a big final to prepare for now and we’re looking forward to that.”
Kane is in a race against time for the League Cup final against Manchester City after suffering an ankle injury in a 2-2 draw against Everton in the Premier League. He was all praise for his old friend and interim manager Ryan Mason. Kane has been impressed by the way Mason has handled the situation. His first win in charge was against Southampton on his debut as manager.
“It’s given everyone a buzz going into the cup final. I and Ryan are good mates, we’ve known each other a long time, on and off the field we are really close,” he added.
