Mauricio Pochettino Walked Out Of Press Conference After Harry Kane Question
You'd have thought that nothing in the world could have annoyed Mauricio Pochettino after watching his side's incredible Champions League comeback against Ajax but one journalist managed it very easily with a question about Harry Kane.
Spurs clearly didn't want Liverpool to hog all of the headlines this week and decided to let Ajax have a 2-0 lead on Wednesday night and let Lucas Moura take the limelight with his hat-trick.
The 95th minute goal gave Spurs the win on away goals and kicked off incredible scenes inside the Johan Cruyff Arena with the visually beautiful juxtaposition of Spurs' limbs flying and Ajax players slumping to the ground.
Unsurprisingly the Spurs bench emptied and Mauricio Pochettino was euphoric as he managed his team to a first ever Champions League final.
Even Harry Kane made a remarkable recovery from the injury that kept him out of the game as he was seen running during the celebrations.
And Kane was the subject of a discussion in the post match press conference, albeit not a very long discussion. Pochettino was asked about the club captain's availability for the final, and that ended the press conference:

Spurs players had to put in an incredible effort to turn things around on Wednesday night after going 2-0 down in the first half.
Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech's goals in the first half had added to the Donny van de Beek in the first leg to leave Pochettino's side with the near impossible task.
The Premier League side did have Son Heung-min back, after he missed the first leg through suspension, but were still without top scorer Kane through injury.
Moura grabbed two goals in four minutes to give them hope of going through on away goals but time had started to run out and it looked like they would just fall short.
The Brazilian forward had other ideas though and his strike in the 95th minute kicked off incredible scenes, and based on Kane's recovery also caused miracles.
