Kane found the net six times in four top-flight matches for Spurs last month, earning him his fifth Player of the Month award.

Spanish giants Real Madrid have been linked with making a move for Kane, who has scored seven goals in Spurs' last three outings in all competitions.

Before the worldwide break, Man City boss Guardiola was discussing his side's rivals for the title.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has hit out at his Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola for dismissively referring to Spurs as the 'Harry Kane team' shortly before the global break.

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".

"Of course [I will talk to Guardiola]". When many people took the words, it was very sad and for many players that are here it is unusual but, in my case, I didn't take it in a bad way.

"No, no, no. I think it's a sad comment; because the players laugh about that", he said.

Officials in Puerto Rico have said it could take $5 billion to get the island's electrical infrastructure up and running again. But the source conceded the optics of the president's handling of the crisis in Puerto Rico have been "terrible".

"I know Pep, when he's excited after an incredible win he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman", he said.

"Everyone deserves to be recognised".

But despite his frustration with Guardiola's comment, Pochettino admitted it was unlikely to motivate his team throughout the rest of the season.

"It was disrespectful for many", he added.

Guardiola is also making up for lost time in a way this season, and after a disappointing first term in English football, September reminded the world of his managerial prowess in a major way.
