Mental level? Yes. Absolutely [they are the same].

"Batistuta was a killer", said Pochettino.

"He's a very good player who's strong defensively and can attack as well". ' he said putting his hand in the air, '. and Harry there, ' after lowering it a bit.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Jamie Redknapp has joked that Tottenham Hotspur ace Harry Kane consciously decides never to score in August, to give striking rivals a head start.

"If you think we need to be at that level, then it will be really hard".

But 101-goal Kane believes getting out of the group would prove Spurs belong among Europe's elite. Kane has some way to go to match Batistuta, who scored 184 goals in 318 matches in Serie A with Fiorentina and Roma, but 80 Premier League goals in just 105 starts suggests that it might not take him long.

Pochettino certainly deserves his share of credit for making Kane a first team regular when he arrived at White Hart Lane ahead of the 2014-15 season, although the manager was keen to praise only the player himself. "For me Harry Kane all that is happening he deserves himself, because he is the protagonist of his life, and he deserves all the prize".

"I wouldn't say it's disrespectful".

Shearer has also called on Harry Kane to lead the charge for Spurs as they look to put to bed what was a very poor outing in the Champions League last term when they finished third in a group containing Bayer Leverkusen, Monaco and CSKA Moscow.

Spurs kick off their group stage campaign on Wednesday night when they welcome Borussia Dortmund to Wembley. I hope I will do well this season and we will all do well in the league, in the Champions League and in the cups.

"We provided him with the tools to grow up and show all the qualities he has". It is so important because it is true we signed some players and they need to settle we need to create a different dynamic and that is sure to help us a lot. We have got to prove that we are at that level.
