SPURS boss Mauri­cio Po­chet­tino has re­vealed his favourite Harry Kane goal was a de­flected free-kick at As­ton Villa – be­cause it saved his job. The Ar­gen­tinian man­ager, who joined Spurs in 2014, said his top goal went in off Nathan Baker in the 90th minute at Villa Park in only his 10th Pre­mier League game. And that Kane-in­spired win bought him the time to change the club. “Maybe I can find many other goals that were fan­tas­tic, but for me the goals are re­lated to emo­tion, in the pe­riod you are liv­ing,” he said. “For me that goal was an amaz­ing goal be­cause it meant for us, for ev­ery­one, the pos­si­bil­ity to stay here to­day. “It’s true, the team were 14th or 13th and we were a lit­tle bit un­der pres­sure be­cause the team was play­ing well. When you don’t get good re­sults, the first to be sacked is the man­ager.”
