Tottenham boss Mourinho frustrated over lack of Kane cover

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is frustrated over the lack of cover for Harry Kane.

Mourinho has had to embark on a new season with his club gambling again on just having England star Kane as a solitary hitman.

The Sun says Mourinho has told friends he cannot believe a big club like Spurs have just ONE recognised central striker compared to the likes of Manchester City — Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus.

While Chelsea have Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and rivals Arsenal can call on Eddie Nketiah, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Manchester United boast Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Odion Ighalo and even Leicester have two in Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho.

A pal said: “Tottenham is the only club in the world with one striker.

“It is the same as last season. Do fans really think Jose wants four left-backs, six wingers and one striker? It is incredible."
