Tottenham Hotspur talisman Harry Kane believes it was a shame to see Jose Mourinho leave the club prematurely.
The Portuguese manager was relieved of his duties after failing to help the club realize its silverware success in the FA Cup and Europa League, while also falling off the chase to finish the season in the UEFA Champions League top four positions.
"He's a fantastic manager, he's managed the biggest players at the biggest clubs in the world," Kane said, as reported by Soccer Laduma.
"He came in with a real understanding of what he wanted and we had good conversations early on that continued all the way through.
"In terms of style of play, I've always liked to drop deep and be involved, but the biggest change was making sure people were running in behind and using all the tools to try and exploit opposition weaknesses.
"We had a good relationship, I feel like my game's been evolving over the last three or four years anyway and it was just a good match-up.
"It was a shame we couldn't go on to better things or win any trophies, but I'll take the experience I had with him forward for the rest of my career,” the English striker concluded.
Leaving a week before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City, Spurs went on to lose the game, much to the cutting criticism of the public.
Coming up next for the Lillywhites is the visit of the relegated Sheffield United this weekend in North London.
