Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou makes positive impression on Harry Kane after first meeting

According to Alasdair Gold of Football London, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has made a positive impression on Harry Kane following a meeting between the player and the manager.

It is understood that the Australian coach held several chats and a meeting with the striker, following his return to training at Hotspur Way this Wednesday, and has seemingly made a positive impression on him, with the two said to have got on well with one another.  

The meeting comes after Bayern Munich made an €80m plus bonuses bid for the England international, which has has since been rejected by Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy, who would demand a much higher fee if he were to consider letting the 29-year-old depart this year, despite his current contract expiring next summer.

The England captain’s future at his boyhood side has been heavily speculated over the past few weeks, with Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United seemingly out of the race, whilst Paris Saint Germain are reportedly preparing an €100m bid.

Despite this speculation, in his first press conference as The Lilywhites new manager this Monday, the former Celtic head coach stated that his discussions with Kane would be more about the two getting to know eachother and seeing how they can succeed together, rather than about his potential departure.

The 57-year-old said: “But I doubt it’s going to be defined in the manner that people think it’s going to be. It’s not going to be a conversation where we walk out of the room and have an understanding.”

“I don’t want that kind of conversation, what I want is to introduce myself to Harry and give him my vision of the football club. And get a sense from him on what he thinks the club needs to do to be successful and walk out on that training pitch and try and make it happen.”

Whether it be with their star striker or without him, Postecolgou, and his new signings James Maddison, Manor Solomon, and Guglielmo Vicario, will have their first game at The North London side on Sunday August 13 where they will travel to the Gtech community stadium to face Thomas Frank’s Brentford.
