Pochettino hits out at Conte, demands 'more respect'.

Tottenham's manager Mauricio Pochettino has fired back at Antonio Conte after the Chelsea manager said Harry Kane would be his dream striker signing.

Conte spoke this week of his great admiration and likeness for the striker - who ended last season as the Premier League's golden shoe winner, scoring a whopping 29 goals - and claimed the 23-year-old striker is worth "at least £100m".

But an angered Pochettino on Friday responded to the comments by demanding "more respect," as he questioned Conte's approach to commenting on rival clubs' players.

Also taking an hint from last week comment by Jose mourinho about likeness for Tottenham transfer dealings, pochettino said, "That makes me laugh, because I don't know why people are so focused on our players and our club,"

"At the moment, so far we know him (Harry Kane) best.

"Our ambition is not the same as a lot of clubs that sign and spend a lot of money.

"I respect every single philosophy and, for me, the most important thing is to show more respect".

We surely don't know what game Mourinho and Conte tried to play but Pochettino isn't finding it funny.
