Paul Merson: When Jose took the job I worried for Harry Kane

After making a bold prediction about Tottenham striker Harry Kane, Arsenal legend Paul Merson was left with an egg on his face.

During the hold sway of Mauricio Pochettino, Kane matured into one of the greatest players in the world, but Merson believed he wouldn’t be able to succeed under Jose Mourinho.

“When Jose took the job I worried for Harry Kane,” Merson told Sky Sports in June 2020. “He played under Pochettino and Tottenham had a go wherever they went. There were goals, there were crosses, there were shots.”

“He’s going to be playing up front on his own and it is going to be hard work. In the end, he is trying to hit 60-yard passes just to get involved in the game and that’s not Harry Kane.”

“I don’t see him getting 25-30 goals a season the way Jose will want to play, and he [Mourinho] won’t want to play like it was when he first got in there, 4-2s and 5-3s, no way.”
