Pep Guardiola referred to Tottenham as “the Harry Kane team” when discussing Manchester City’s title rivals.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager was speaking to reporters after his side’s 1-0 win at Chelsea on Saturday.
“It’s in September, so Chelsea won 15 games in a row last season, were unbeatable and won the league, not easy, but they won it in advance,” Guardiola said after the game.
“Of course this season has a little more problems because they [Chelsea] play every three days, that’s always more complicated for all the teams.
“But we also have United, we saw again the Harry Kane team scores every day two or three goals.” (Quotes via Sky Sports.)
I don’t think Guardiola was aiming a dig at Spurs. It’s more likely he was simply suggesting that Tottenham have a player in Kane who will ensure they are challenging for the Premier League title this season.
I’m sure he doesn’t need telling that Spurs have more than one top quality player. Tottenham and Manchester City will meet for the first time this season in December.
