Tottenham ace Kane enjoying role under manager Mourinho

Tottenham ace Harry Kane is enjoying his role under manager Jose Mourinho.

Last weekend's disputed penalty against Brighton — his sixth goal of the season — put him joint tenth with Les Ferdinand on 149 in the all-time Premier League goalscorers list.

But he is also the leading provider of assists in the top flight, with eight so far.

Son Heung-min has been the main beneficiary of his link-play and Kane said: “I've always dropped deeper as a nine anyway. My whole youth team career, I played as a ten.

“I've always had that understanding of how to drop into them pockets.

“We've been more clinical as a team. Sonny's been taking pretty much every chance he's been given so far this year. It's been a development of my game and maybe Sonny's game as well."
