Jose Mourinho sent Harry Kane a text after he became Tottenham manager

Crvena Zvezda v Tottenham Hotspur: Group B - UEFA Champions League

Jose Mourinho hasn’t had much time to prepare for his first match as Tottenham manager as they travel across London to face West Ham in the early kick-off on Saturday.

Mourinho has only been in charge of his new club for 48 hours but has already conducted his first training session and first press conference.

He will no doubt already have plenty of knowledge of the players at his disposal and will already know who he wants to include in his first line-up.

One player that will definitely be starting - and captaining Mourinho’s first Tottenham game - is Harry Kane.

If Mourinho wants to be a success in north London, he’ll need to convince Kane to stay at his boyhood club for the years to come.

And it seems that was very much on Mourinho’s mind when he was appointed.

That’s because, according to The Times, the Portuguese text Harry Kane soon after becoming the Spurs boss.

He promised the striker to help win him some trophies, told him he was one of the best strikers in Europe and pledged to deliver silverware at Tottenham.

Will that be enough to convince Kane to stay?

Having scored 174 goals in 268 games for Spurs, the 26-year-old is already a bit of a club legend at White Hart Lane.

But he’s still looking to win a piece of silverware and won’t want to end his career with nothing to show for it.

Kane will obviously be devastated that Mauricio Pochettino was sacked by the club after the Argentine helped shape his career.

"Gaffer. I’ll be forever thankful to you for helping me achieve my dreams,” Kane posted on social media.

"We’ve had some amazing moments in the last 5 and a half years that I will never forget.

"You were my manager but my friend as well and I thank you for that relationship.
"Good luck with your next chapter!”

While Kane will relish working under such a successful manager in Mourinho, the opportunity for a new challenge - one where he’s winning trophies - could be tempting.
