Pochettino: Kane Saved Me From The Axe In 2014

Mauricio Pochettino has picked a goal in Kane’s career for Tottenham, as the one that saved him from getting sacked in 2014.

Pochettino recalled the 10th match he was in charge of Tottenham, with the Spurs having only gotten 11 points from nine games.

Kane was playing understudy to Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor at the time, netted a 90th minute deflected free kick to earn a 2-1 against Aston Villa.

Tottenham and Kane have become unstoppable since then, with the England international claiming the PL golden boot two years in a row. And Pochettino has guided the club to consecutive top three finishes.

“Maybe I can find many other goals that were fantastic but for me the goals are related to emotion, in the period you are living,” Pochettino said.

“For me that goal was an amazing goal because it meant for us, for everyone, the possibility to stay here today.

“It’s true, the team were 14th or 13th and we were a little bit under pressure because the team were there and play well, but not win games.

“Always in football, when you don’t get good results, the first to be sacked is the manager. That is why that goal allowed us to carry on working and try to change the club.”
