Harry Kane says that he is hoping to build a “strong relationship” with new Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese coach was brought in as the club’s new manager last week after the north London side opted to sack Mauricio Pochettino.

Mourinho has led Tottenham to two wins from two games following his appointment, with Spurs having claimed victories over West Ham United and Olympiakos.

The newly-appointed Spurs boss will be keen to help coax the best form out of England striker Kane, who has already scored three goals since Mourinho’s appointment last week.

And the 26-year-old forward is feeling positive about what the future holds for both him and Mourinho.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Kane said: “It’s early days, we have a good relationship so far, we talk, we try and help the team.

“Obviously me being one of the leaders in the team he looks to me for feelings and advice on the team.

“When you are winning games it definitely helps your relationship. Hopefully we can build a strong relationship.

“We know we both want to win big competitions. That’s the team’s aim, that’s my aim and that is the manager’s aim. Hopefully I can help him do that this year and see where we can go.

“He’s a new manager, he’s been here less than a week, he’s had two games. So far it’s been all about trying to save the energy, not trying to work too much with the players because of the games.

“But we obviously have a long season ahead so I am sure we will get to know each other well over the next few weeks and implement what he wants on our team.

“But at the end of the day it’s two wins out of two, positive start so let’s hope it continues.”

Kane will be expecting to start for Tottenham Hotspur when they return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a home clash against Bournemouth.

They will then focus their attention on preparing for their crunch clash against Manchester United on Wednesday next week, as Mourinho prepares for his first return to Old Trafford following his sacking by the Red Devils almost a year ago.

Spurs are currently in 10th place in the Premier League table after 13 games of the new campaign.
