Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham boss has backed Harry Kane for the PFA Player of the Year award.
Harry Kane, 21, who plays as a striker for Tottenham has netted 19 goals this season. To win the award, the England international has to ward off competition from the likes of Costa of Chelsea, De Gea of United, Sanchez of Arsenal, Coutinho of Liverpool and Hazard of Chelsea.
Pochettino feels Kane’s impact on the English game makes him more deserving of the League’s most prestigious individual award, and he should get the award ahead of Hazard.
“Hazard is a very good player, he’s fantastic, but the impact that Harry has had on English football is massive,” he told reporters.
“Everyone knew that Hazard is a brilliant player but I think not too many people expected that Harry Kane would show the performances that he has. This is the difference.”
The winner of the award will be announced on April 29. I’m still surprised there’s no Man City player on the shortlist. May the best man win.
