Tottenham are struggling at the beginning of the 2019/20 season as well as their best player and striker, Harry Kane.

Even though Kane is still scoring, his overall impact on the match isn’t the same as in previous seasons.

The sensational English striker scored five goals in the Premier League campaign so far.

However, Pochettino still isn’t worried about Tottenham’s captain in the absence of Hugo Lloris.

According to Football365, Pochettino said:

“He does not need to feel too much pressure. He needs to act natural,” Pochettino commented.

“The most important thing is to not show too much the responsibility on your shoulders, to act natural.

“When you act natural, if you are a natural leader, you don’t feel the responsibility. When you do what you feel, what you feel here in your heart, it’s natural.

“The problem is if you need to act. If you are not a real leader and you need to act, you spend energy thinking, ‘How do I need to face this problem?’

“But if you trust in yourself and you are a natural leader, then, I promise, you don’t feel the responsibility.”

Pochettino also joked about his skills which didn’t go away even with his managerial career, adding:

“It’s like I feel now. Of course, it’s my responsibility but I am flying.

“If you see me today running on the pitch. Today I played boxes. 10, 12 minutes.

“How many times did I go inside? Toby (Alderweireld), Jan (Vertonghen), Tanguy (Ndombele), Moussa Sissoko, Davinson Sanchez, (Juan) Foyth, Harry Kane, (Harry) Winks, Serge Aurier and Skippy (Oliver Skipp) were the players. And not one time!”
