Tottenham media round-up: Kane comments on squad depth, Wimmer on Europa League

White Hart Lane 6

A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Tottenham Hotspur this Friday evening.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has said there are no worries about the depth of the squad, the London Evening Standard reports.

They report that failure to bring in Saido Berahino and Victor Wanyama from West Bromwich Albion and Southampton respectively may have left the squad a little light to cope with the demands of all four competitions this season, but Kane doesn't seem overly concerned. 

He's quoted in the Standard as saying: “There’s been a lot of talk but the manager’s happy with his squad, I think he’s come out and said that, so we’re happy."

Any fears over the striking department, which is now slimmer after the departures of Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor, were calmed a little on Thursday night in the Europa League where Son Heung-Min led the line for Spurs and scored twice in a 3-1 over Qarabag, as they got their campaign off to the perfect start.

Kane added: "Sonny did a great job up there tonight and we’re delighted for him to get the two goals. We’ve got a great squad, a lot of players in a lot of positions so we’re not worried.”

Thursday also saw defender Kevin Wimmer make his first competitive appearance for the club after signing from Cologne in the summer. 

He told the club's official website that he enjoyed the feeling of playing for the club, but also commented on the difficulty of their Europa League group, which also features Anderlecht and Monaco, and spoke of the importance of winning their next continental game.

He said: “Our group isn’t easy, so it was important for us to win this first game in the group stage. Now we can look forward to the next game away to Monaco and hopefully we can win there as well."
