Pochettino admits his love for Tottenham star has made his wife jealous
Tottenham Hotspur are looking to impress in Europe and do a lot better than their previous attempts in the Champions League.
They find themselves a very tough group with the likes of Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. But Spurs are capable of qualifying if they maintain their incredible form.
Mauricio Pochettino’s team thrashed APOEL on Tuesday with Harry Kane grabbing a hat-trick in a 3-0 win.
And the Argentine manager admitted he was in love with the 24-year-old.
“I think they are completely different type of players. For me Harry is one of the best strikers. Cristiano is different. Not a striker, like Messi, a different type of player,” Pochettino said.
“It doesn’t change my perception of Harry Kane because he scored three goals. For me he’s one of the best as I told you.
“But I don’t want to describe him as I did after West Ham because it was so controversial the description.”
Asked about the loving comment, Pochettino said: “Now my wife is so jealous. And his wife too.
“No, I think it’s unbelievable. You know, it’s Harry Kane.”.
Pochettino was unwilling to be drawn into whether he would swap Kane for Ronaldo, saying he wanted both.
“Cristiano is fantastic, one of the best. Harry is one of the best and will get better because he’s so young,” he said.
“I cannot joke about that because both are fantastic. Both are the type of players you want in your team, in the same team.”
