Tottenham Hotspur forward, Harry Kane, has opened up on Jose Mourinho’s sacking as Spurs manager.
Kane said he was surprised to hear of Mourinho’s sacking this week and only found out the Portuguese was dismissed shortly before the announcement.
Tottenham sacked Mourinho on Monday after a run of just one win in six matches and just six days before their Sunday’s Carabao Cup final clash with Manchester City at Wembley Stadium.
Speaking about Mourinho’s sacking, Kane told Sky Sports News: “I was surprised, I will be totally honest. I came in that morning and probably found out five to ten minutes before it was announced.
“A lot of the focus was on the Carabao Cup final and preparing for that, but, look, it is football.
“I have been here now where a couple of managers have been sacked and, as a player now, I do not think you ever expect the boss to be sacked, but it is part of the game, you’ve to deal with it.
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’ve a big final to prepare for now, and we are looking forward to that.”
