Nuno Espirito Santo, in his first press conference after being appointed Tottenham coach on June 30, today issued a warning to interested clubs to Harry Kane not to try his signing. The Portuguese coach does not want to hear about the possible departure of the English striker despite the fact that, according to the press, in May he transferred to the club his desire to change of scene after another season without winning titles.
“Harry is our player, period. There is no need to talk about anything else ”, assured Nuno. “Now is the time for you to regain your energy and rest. When you return it will be time to speak, you need to prepare for what is to come. He is one of the best players in the world. This is all I have to say. ” Kane, with a contract until 2024, is on vacation after losing the Eurocup final against Italy on Sunday with penalties.
Nuno believes that Kane is a fundamental player for Tottenham’s ambitions and does not contemplate his departure. “I have no doubt in my mind,” Nuno made very clear. “When he returns he will feel that we all have to commit ourselves to be better. We are very ambitious, we are ambitious people and we want to do well. We certainly have Harry for that. “
Levy and the club’s DNA
At his side, Daniel Levy, president of Tottenham, said that Nuno has been hired for Tottenham to regain “its DNA of playing offensive and entertaining football” after José Mourinho’s pragmatic approach failed to achieve the desired results.
Nuno was optimistic about attracting fans with his style of football, the same style that helped Wolverhampton finish seventh in two consecutive Premier League editions, in 2019 and 2020.
We want the fans to enjoy our team
“I am here, it is where I want to be. I’m very happy. We want to make our fans proud, we want them to enjoy our team and our players ”, proclaimed Nuno.
“We want a good atmosphere. I think they will enjoy it. Soccer has to reflect what we want to do. I’m sure the fans will enjoy it ”.
