Mauricio Pochettino thinks striker Harry Kane is just an easy target for criticism as he does not think the strike has any individual problem.
The Spurs manager doesn’t believe tiredness is an issue for the striker who’s not scored in his last four appearances.
“Harry is an easy target because it’s easy when he’s not scoring to start to talk about him,” Pochettino said.
“But Harry, after four years at the club, there are a lot of things to say thank you to him.
“Of course he needs to improve, but the team needs to improve. But it’s easy to blame Harry, it’s an easy judgement.”
Spurs play Inter Milan in their first game of this seasons Champions League. And the Argentine does not see them making headway in the competition on current form.
“I don’t think we’re realistic contenders in any competition. That’s my view,” he said.
“If we show the face from some bits of [beating Manchester United at] Old Trafford, then maybe yes.
“The last two defeats have been so good as a wake-up call.”
