Romelu Lukaku has praised Jose Mourinho for further developing Harry Kane’s game as the Englishman becomes a great assist provider this season.
Lukaku played for the Special One at Manchester United and he credits him for making him a better team player.
The Inter Milan striker was already an established goalscorer before United signed him from Everton.
But when he joined Mourinho at Old Trafford, the Portuguese manager still improved his game further.
Mourinho seems to be doing that with Kane, who now drops deep and provides goals for his teammates like a seasoned expert.
That has been an added weapon to his already rich arsenal, and Lukaku says that the Special One is the one helping Kane become better just as he did for him at United.
Lukaku told Belgian outlet Sport/Voetbal Magazine via Sun Sports: “Jose Mourinho taught me to work better with the collective, both in terms of pressing and my positioning.
“Just look at what he’s achieving with Harry Kane now at Tottenham.”
Kane has already scored 17 goals and provided 11 assists for Tottenham this season, and we are just at the halfway point of the campaign.
The Englishman is set to keep scoring, and he would hope his goals lead to trophies this season as well.
