​Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino, says it would be 'crazy' to leave star striker, Harry Kane, out of his squad to face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.


The England international has not looked at his best since his heroics for England at the World Cup in Russia. Many pundits have urged both Gareth Southgate and Pochettino to allow Kane some rest. 



The Argentine, however, believes Kane is in top shape and will soon hit top form.


"I think we would be crazy to think different. Yes," Pochettino said when asked about the possibility of leaving Kane out against Inter at the San Siro, as quoted by SkySports


"I don't know what you expect from me, or what you think my ­answer should be. He's one of the best strikers in the world. I don't care that he wasn't great [on Saturday]. He's ­going to score goals and he's going to perform in the way we want and we expect. No problem."


Despite failing to bring in reinforcements, Pochettino still has full faith in the squad and backed them to do well. 


"It's not a problem. Of course there is a challenge with nine ­players involved until the end of the World Cup, but I'm not going to complain," he added.


"We provided them with a good rest, 21 days, and they started a few days before the competition started at Newcastle United. We knew that it was a massive challenge for us. When you win, you win. When you lose, yes of course you need to talk about different things, but I'm not worried."



"We are going to win a lot of games. We have trust in the squad. Of course we need to improve, but we're in a very good way."


Tottenham, after two consecutive defeats to Watford and Liverpool, have slid down to sixth in the league table. They return to league action against Brighton next Saturday.
