Rose told talksport: ‘He mentioned that we were showing Frenkie de Jong too much respect and said ‘who’s the one that’s going to get around him and show him that he’s in for a game.

‘He asked if we wanted our season to end like this and once Harry goes, he goes and he’s very passionate.

‘It’s a great side to see because it shows he cares.

He’s got all these goals and accolades, but is never satisfied.

‘He’s a great England captain to have and a great club one, too.

‘ Spurs will be hoping Kane can lead the players on the pitch when the meet Liverpool in the Champions League final in Madrid on June 1.
