Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has defended Harry Kane after his appeal to have a goal awarded to him was successful on Wednesday.
Spurs took on Stoke last weekend and Christian Eriksen had looked to have scored directly from a free-kick.
Though, Harry Kane celebrated the goal and he was not finishing there, by claiming after the match that the goal was simply his.
That lead to a string of big comments from the player, supposedly swearing on his daughter’s life that he got a touch before it went in.
The club then appealed the goal decision, with Kane being awarded the goal on Wednesday.
Safe to say, the Englishman has been criticised for being petty and too competitive but his boss has backed him.
‘Harry is a very honest person and of course, he is not going to lie about this situation,’ Pochettino said.
‘It is not a big issue. It is not a big deal for the team.
‘For me, I don’t care who scores the goal, I care about the three points.. It was a club decision to appeal and I wasn’t involved.
‘It is not a big deal. I promise you. Harry is generous. Harry is a person that always puts in front or ahead the collective before himself.
‘I promise it is not a big deal. No one talked about it that week inside the club. I hope that Harry and Christian can score on Saturday and everyone will be happy.’

I just asked Mo Salah if he saw the goal in the Real Madrid game. He said Which one? I said it doesn’t matter which one, they were both scored by Harry Kane. It was so funny.
