Former Tottenham striker Peter Crouch has admitted he was surprised by Harry Kane's progression from youth team hopeful to Premier League predator and called on the England captain to target trophies under Jose Mourinho, calling the new Spurs manager 'a breath of fresh air'.

Kane became the quickest ever player to score 20 goals in Europe and the first Spurs player to score 30 goals on the continent in the 4-2 home win over Olympiacos on Tuesday, capping Mourinho's first Champions League win since his surprise appointment as manager on November 23.

He had been linked with a move away from the club during Tottenham's prolonged slump under former boss Mauricio Pochettino, but Crouch believes his former protege has been galvanised by the return of the Portuguese.

Crouch was at Tottenham when Kane signed his first professional contract with the club in 2010, watching the teenager learn his trade with the club's under-18s side and during loan spells with clubs including Leyton Orient.

Recalling his initial impressions of Kane, Crouch conceded: 'I saw him coming through at Spurs when he was in the youth team and if you'd have told me what he would go on and achieve then, I wouldn't have been sure at that time.
