That was two years ago or more. He said to me: ‘Why do you want me if you have Harry Kane?’”But Morata has since denied that, saying: “No it’s not true. I spoke with him and he said he wanted both [of us] to play together, but there was no chance to come to Tottenham.“For sure I would like to play with Kane, he’s a big player, one of the best strikers in the world, but in this moment when I spoke with him (Pochettino) there was no chance to leave Real Madrid.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata was forced to sit out the visit to Everton on December 23, 2014 while he served a one-match suspensionLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 30 – Alvaro Morata has rejected claims by Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino that he didn’t move to the club because he would have been in competition with Harry Kane.The Spanish hit-man has 12 goals in 25 games in his first season for Chelsea.last_img read more
