« What I want from a center-half is someone who likes to defend Yes they can play, but they don’t just like to defend, they really want to defend – they want to get in the line they want to prevent the opposition from scoring This is what we see with Rodon When the ball is there to be won, it wins «

Mourinho said Kane could ‘explode’ under the guidance of a manager who already enjoys this status – « my profile, I’m a bit like that as a coach, » he added – and given the two names Kane himself mentioned, the hypothesis was that the explosion was referring to his rating rate

A year later, however, and Mourinho’s plan for Kane is different from how he was initially perceived. Rather than focus on increasing his goal scoring, he wants Kane to become a player. who creates as well as scores, a player who serves the team in many ways
