Harry Kane: 'I have no problem with Mourinho style of play'

Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur stretches for the ball under pressure from Lukasz Fabianski of West Ham United during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 23, 2020 in London, England.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane says he has "no problem" with their style of play under manager Jose Mourinho.

Kane ended his long wait for a goal in Tuesday's 2-0 Premier League home victory over West Ham, crowning the victory with a smart finish after latching onto a through pass from Heung-min Son.

It was Kane's first goal of 2020 after recovering from a hamstring tendon injury during the three-month coronavirus shutdown, and it helped Spurs seal their first win in eight matches in all competitions, lifting them to seventh in the league.

Sky Sports analyst Paul Merson said after Spurs' 1-1 draw with Manchester United last Friday that Kane would struggle to score goals in Mourinho's conservative system and that the striker would consider switching clubs if the manager continued with his approach.

"I've got no problem with how the manager plays. He's here to win, we're here to win games... obviously this season, to get into the Champions League and next season to progress and try to win something," Kane told the BBC.

"People, pundits have their opinions.

"In terms of how I feel, I feel really good. I'm positive, in really good shape and like I say, I can only do what I do and try not to listen to the noise outside."
