Spurs’ season is on the brink of capitulating following a disastrous week which has culminated in reports of Daniel Levy being prepared to sack Jose Mourinho unless he can secure Champions League qualification.
Tottenham appeared to be back on track after a run of five successive victories, but their hopes of a top four finish were dealt a blow following a limp display at Arsenal last weekend, while their capitulation in Zagreb saw their European adventure ended in astonishing circumstances.
Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Spurs were outfought and largely outclassed by Dinamo, who secured their aggregate victory thanks to a stunning hat-trick from Mislav Orsic.
Club captain Hugo Lloris was the only senior player to speak following the shocking defeat which he branded ‘disgraceful’ and it has taken Kane a further 48 break his silence.
Writing on Instagram ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Aston VIlla, he said: ‘Time to bounce back tomorrow after a very disappointing week. No words will atone for the last 2 games, we just have to show our response on the pitch.’
A third successive defeat would see Dean Smith’s Villa move to within a point of Tottenham, but the former Brentford manager is anticipating a strong response from Mourinho’s men.
He said: ‘The result for us is probably the wrong thing because I can expect Jose Mourinho to get a backlash from his players and for them to come out fighting at Villa Park.
‘We have to make sure that we concentrate on ourselves rather than Tottenham. It’s a squad that is littered with very good players, none more so than Harry Kane.
‘We have to be at our best to get anything out of this game. The thing that helps us more than anything is the fact that their game went to extra time.’
