Tottenham Hotspur surprisingly went with two strikers against Real Madrid in midweek.
Pochettino shocked Spurs supporters with the starting line-up he named at the Bernabeu.
Tottenham went with two strikers, with Pochettino pairing Kane with Llorente up-front.
And Kane said that Pochettino informed him that he would be playing as part of a strike duo during the week.
“He told me what he was thinking of doing and I agreed,” Kane said. “He wanted to go on the attack, didn’t want to drop off, defend and get a 0-0.”
Llorente and Kane linked well for Tottenham against Madrid, with the strike pair causing some problems for the Spanish giants.
Tottenham managed to collect a 1-1 draw against Madrid, which has earned them a great deal of credit.
Spurs actually went ahead in the contest, but they were pegged back when Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the spot.
Tottenham are now in a commanding position in their Champions League group, and look very likely to qualify for the knockout stages of the European competition.
