Aged 24 (and a couple of months), Harry Kane can be proud of having already scored 100 goals for Tottenham, and Mauricio Pochettino was asked to pick one of those as his favorite.
Interestingly, the Spurs manager didn’t choose a particularly beautiful one, but what he considers the most important, not necessarily for Kane, but definitely for himself, and the project he has been working on at Tottenham for some years now.
Maybe I can find many other goals that were fantastic but for me the goals are related to emotion, in the period you are living. For me that goal against Aston Villa in 2014 was an amazing goal because it meant for us, for everyone, the possibility to stay here today
the Argentine manager told reporters, going back to a last-minute 2-1 Tottenham win at Aston Villa, in his first season at White Heart Lane, in which the team had just 11 points after the first nine matches, and there were doubts regarding Pochettino’s continuity as Spurs manager.
It’s true, the team were 14th or 13th and we were a little bit under pressure because the team were there and play well, but not win games. Always in football, when you don’t get good results, the first to be sacked is the manager. That is why that goal allowed us to carry on working and try to change the club
a definitely vindicated Pochettino said, having led Tottenham to back-to-back top three finishes in the Premier League.
