Harry Kane has told SPORTbible that Jose Mourinho's greatest strength is his natural warmth and keen interest in his players - something that surprised even the Spurs striker.
"Probably from the outside, before I knew Jose, you got that impression he was kind of stern and all about winning," said Kane.
"But he's actually really good off the pitch, getting to know you as a person, getting to know your family, texting you to make sure you're alright."
Tottenham fans have seen a different side to Mourinho in Amazon's new documentary series 'All or Nothing'. While the manager has dealt out a bit of tough love to some members of the squad - mainly Danny Rose - he has also shown a human side rarely seen before as he looks to build a strong bond with his players.
"Everyone knows tactically he's a great manager," said Kane. "Over the years he's won many, many trophies - always finding ways to win in big games.
"But in any management you need to have that relationship with the players and be able to keep the players happy: whether you're starting, on the bench, not in the squad. He's got great experience of that as he's managed some of the biggest players around the world."
At Tottenham, Kane is by far the biggest star that Mourinho has to deal with. And the 27-year-old gave one Spurs season ticket holder an amazing surprise as he showed up at her house with a signed shirt as part of Coca-Cola's 'Make Your Home The Home End' campaign.
"Reactions like that still take a bit of getting used to if I'm honest, because obviously I still feel like a normal lad; a normal guy," added Kane on how emotional lifelong Tottenham fans can get when meeting their favourite player.
With football fans waiting impatiently for the latest instalment of the new Spurs documentary, Kane has also revealed the one team he would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for.
