Morata Ever Reject Tottenham for Not Want To Be a Kane Reserve
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said Spain striker Alvaro Morata had rejected the Lilywhites bid because he did not want to be in the shadow of Harry Kane.
Morata joined the English Premier League champions this season from Real Madrid.
However, news from the British media states that Spurs have been targeting them before that.
Mauricio Pochettino claimed to have given Morata the opportunity to become a Tottenham player two years ago.
However, the boss must accept the word no.
Pochettino said that Morata did not want to be the “second Harry Kane”.
Kane once led a list of Tottenham goalscorers with 21 goals in the previous season, in 2014-2015.

“Morata asked me, ‘Why do you want me if you have Harry Kane? Because it’s Harry Kane, do I have to sit on the bench?’ Said Pochettino mimicking Morata’s words quoted BolaSport.com from Telegraph.co.uk.
In addition, Pochettino also revealed the difficulty of bringing players to the stock this summer because he is more focused on finding a coating player of the squad that he has now.
“Convincing good players to come and then sit on the bench was very difficult,” said the Tottenham Manager.
