Tim Sherwood offers his strong views on Tottenham boss and Daniel Levy

Tim Sherwood Press Conference 12/02/2014

Tim Sherwood suggests that Harry Kane should not leave Tottenham Hotspur for Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Tim Sherwood has told The Express that he likes that Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino does not pick players based on reputation.

Pochettino has been in charge of Tottenham since the summer of 2014 and has done a wonderful job at White Hart Lane so far.

Spurs are virtually certain to finish in the top four of the Premier League table this season and could even win the league title.

Former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Sherwood appears to rate Pochettino highly, and he has also praised club chairman Daniel Levy.

The former Blackburn Rovers midfielder has also claimed that Harry Kane should not leave Tottenham at the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho wants to sign the England international striker for Manchester United in the summer transfer window if he becomes the new Red Devils’ manager, according to a report in The Independent last month.

“Why would he want to leave Tottenham?" Sherwood told The Express regarding Kane’s future. "Why would anybody? It is the club to be at.

“They have got the best training ground in the league and they are building a new stadium for a group of great young players, the nucleus of which are English. Daniel Levy [the chairman] has got it right on and off the field and they are playing with a great identity. They are young and moving forward.

“What I love about [manager] Mauricio Pochettino is that he does not pick players on reputation or price tags. It is based on what people are doing in training. If anybody had to take over that job when I left, I wanted it to be somebody like him.”

Kane has scored 22 goals and created 40 chances in 32 Premier League appearances for Tottenham so far this season.
