Harry Kane has issued his support for his former team-mate Ryan Mason, who is now Tottenham’s interim manager until the end of the season.
Harry Kane has issued his full support for Tottenham’s new interim boss Ryan Mason. The duo know each other well from the retired midfielder’s time at the club, in which he was very close to his new striker Kane.
The pair spent time together coming through the ranks in Spurs’ academy before making their first-team breakthroughs under Mauricio Pochettino.
However, Mason eventually moved on in 2016 to join Hull while Kane stayed with the club on his way to legendary status.
Now the England captain will be under the instructions of his former team-mate, who takes charge of his first Tottenham game tonight against Southampton.
Kane is unlikely to bet involved due to the ankle injury he picked up in the 2-2 draw at Everton but he has made it clear that he is right behind Mason, heading into the contest.
Having come through the academy together I know how much it will mean to @RyanMason to take charge of the team for the rest of the season. We'll give him everything we've got for these next 7 games. pic.twitter.com/zApulzZMT8

“Having come through the academy together I know how much it will mean to @RyanMason to take charge of the team for the rest of the season,” Kane wrote on Twitter.
“We’ll give him everything we’ve got for these next 7 games.”
Those seven games include this weekend’s League Cup final, in which Mason could secure cult-hero status should he mastermind an upset.
Daniel Levy is believed to deem Tottenham’s Premier League position as the priority, despite the chance to win silverware.
