Harry Kane has admitted that he was surprised by the Tottenham’s decision to sack Jose Mourinho.
Spurs have announced on Monday that they are parting ways with Mourinho just days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
The 29-year-old Ryan Mason was later confirmed as the club’s new interim coach.
When asked about how he felt when he heard about Mourinho’s sacking, the England captain told Sky Sports: “I was surprised (by Mourinho’s sacking) – I’ll be totally honest.
“I came in that morning and probably found out 5-10 minutes before it was announced. A lot of the focus was on the Carabao Cup final and preparing for that but, look, it’s football.
“I’ve been here now where a couple of managers have been sacked and, as a player now, I don’t think you ever expect the boss to be sacked but it’s part of the game, you have to deal with it.
“I had a great relationship with Jose, I wish him all the best for whatever his next job is, but he knows as we know football can be cut-throat and we just have to look forward. We have a big final to prepare for now and we’re looking forward to that.”
