Mauricio Pochettino reacts to Pep Guardiola calling Tottenham 'the Harry Kane team'

Kane ended his drought with a brace for England on the first day of September and then scored twice against both Everton - including his 100th Spurs goal - and Borussia Dortmund for Mauricio Pochettino's men.

The Manchester City manager described Spurs as the "Harry Kane team" when discussing his side's title rivals.

Guardiola's comment following his side's 1-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge brought smiles from those present, but Pochettino was not amused by the tag that he views as disrespectful to his players.

Pochettino admits that he did not "take it in a bad way" but acknowledged that those within the club may have been hurt by Guardiola's "unnecessary" words.

Natural disaster recorded near North Korea's nuclear test site
These disturbances are more numerous and widespread than seen after any of the North's previous tests, 38 North has said. All of North Korea's nuclear explosions since 2006 caused earthquakes with a magnitude of 4.3 or above.

Asked if this constituted the best month of his career, Kane responded: "I'd say so, when you look at the amount of goals I scored in the games".

"It was disrespectful for many", he added.

"It's hard to understand because he was part of the big success at Barcelona with Messi at his best, and I never said it was "the Messi team".

But despite his frustration with Guardiola's comment, Pochettino admitted it was unlikely to motivate his team throughout the rest of the season. But I think many people took those words as very disrespectful for the club, and for many players that are here I think it's a unusual situation.
