WH Lane

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Belfast Telegraph has quoted Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino as saying he’s happy with the fight in his side after the result against Southampton.

Tottenham drew 2-2 with the Saints over the weekend and Pochettino is pleased that there was some friction between his own players during the game.

At one point during the game, Nabil Bentaleb and Federico Fazio were involved in a visibly heated argument.

“This is good because you show that you care about your team-mates. You want to win, you want to fight and this is very important and I am happy with that,” said Pochettino.

Christian Eriksen says it’s Harry Kane’s decision whether he plays in the under-21 Euros this summer, as quoted by the Daily Star.

There has been great debate as to whether Kane will link up with the England under-21 side or whether he will have extra rest at the end of the season.

He has performed consistently for the under-21 side, before his call up to the senior ranks under Roy Hodgson.

“I have played and it is a good tournament to play. I think it is a place where you can show off, but it is Harry's decision, nobody else's,” said the Dane.

Harry Kane has been named the PFA’s Young Player of the Year as confirmed on the club’s official website.

Kane has been in superb form throughout this season, with 30 goals in 47 games across all competitions.

Chelsea attacker Eden Hazard took the main award, which Kane was also nominated for.
