Harry Kane will stay at Tottenham for a "long time"

"Some people are also saying we must win trophies for Harry to stay with us but it's already been made very clear".

Tottenham's Harry Kane now boasts a better minutes-per-goal ratio in London derbies than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

Last season's Premier League Golden Boot victor has started the season slowly with two goals in five league games for Spurs, although he has been sharper in Europe where he found the net twice in the 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund.

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood claims that the club will lose star striker Harry Kane unless they can win a trophy this season.

Pochettino certainly is not panicking about that just yet, though, the Spurs boss certain that Kane's love for the club trumps any other desires. He is one of the best strikers playing for Tottenham when still we don't win any trophies.

"It doesn't make sense and if I was in his shoes, then I would be loyal to Spurs right now, but you can not tell me that people are not in his ear".

Tottenham will need Eriksen to be at his energetic - and creative - best when they take on West Ham on Saturday, as they look to put a disappointing home draw against Swansea last time out past them.

"I respect every single opinion".

"Tim (Sherwood) has the right to speak about Tottenham and Harry. But that is a question more for Harry on what he wants to do". This doesn't surprise me.

"We had a dinner in a restaurant in London with all the staff and players that I invite of course. We feel very proud of his last three seasons with us because I think he achieved many, many more things than he expected", he added.

"I have told you that Harry is one of the best strikers in the world".

Asked if he still thinks about last season's 1-0 defeat in early May, Dier said: "No".

Pochettino insists there was a reasonable explanation for the celebration, however. The Argentine has pushed his players from top four nearlymen to genuine title challengers, with high octane pressing throughout his lineups central to their success. "Why would he need to prove anything?"

This brought some concern to the north London club's fan base with their side's last piece of silverware coming back in 2008 in the League Cup. That is the truth and I believe it and yesterday he told me that.

"I think it is so important to manage properly, it is the key to keeping him fit and to providing all the quality that he has to the team".
