Thomas Tuchel heaps praise to Harry Kane

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hinted there could be something of a craze among the world’s best football managers for Harry Kane in the coming months, resolute every coach will want the England star.

Media reports this week maintained Kane has notified Tottenham of his wish to leave the club, and Spurs’ reply did little to convince fans as they urged “everyone” to focus on the end of the campaign.

The stories have not gone away since, with Kane affirming on Thursday in an interview with former England and Manchester United defender Gary Neville that he perceives he is at a “crossroads” in his career.

Kane spoke of his desire to challenge for trophies and reach the level of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, before stoking ties with Manchester City when naming Kevin De Bruyne as the player who would help him score even more.

While Kane also emphasized he would never say he wants to exit Spurs, the suggestions combined with the determination to grant a major interview insinuate he may well be angling for a move.


Although the rivalry between the two clubs could be a barrier, Chelsea have also been tentatively connected with the Tottenham star, and Thomas Tuchel was questioned about any interest on Friday.

The German was explicit in his appreciation for Kane.
When asked if Chelsea were involved in Kane, a chuckling Tuchel said:

“Good one!
“If you find any coach around the world who would not like to have Harry Kane in his team, call me again.

“I’d like to speak with the guy and hear about his ideas of scoring and attacking. Of course, everybody loves Kane.

“But let’s be very, very clear, he’s a player for Tottenham on a long-term contract, and we will not get involved in any press conference with any disrespectful comments about that.”

One reason behind connections between Kane and Chelsea is the fact the Blues’ top-scorer in the Premier League this term is Jorginho with seven, all of which have been penalties.

Tuchel holds that is not an ideal scenario.

“Is that what we want, Jorginho our top scorer? No. Not because we don’t like Jorgi – he deserves all the fame and all the praise – but, of course, we don’t want him to be our top scorer.

“But turn it around: if we let Timo take all the penalties, he could have seven more. Mason [Mount] scored from a penalty already and Jorgi has also missed. Timo missed [too].

“So, he could have had another 10 more goals and we have a very different discussion with the exact same performance.

“A lot of top scorers in Europe use penalties to improve their numbers to score. That’s not with Timo. He is not that type of player.

“We try – in general we don’t need to hide – we try to improve our statistics offensively. First of all, we do that with the guys who are here.”
