ANGE POSTECOGLOU did not see the funny side after a German reporter held up a Bayern Munich shirt with Harry Kane on the back in his Tottenham press conference.
The Spurs boss was speaking to the media ahead of his side’s friendly with Leicester on Sunday in Bangkok when the Bild journalist pulled off the stunt.
He lifted a new Bayern kit with the name ‘Kane’ and the No9 on the back and asked Postecoglou what he thought of it, cheekily adding: “It looks quite good, no?”
Safe to say the Spurs boss was deeply unimpressed by the hack’s antics.
Postecoglou, sporting a face like thunder, replied: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.
“Did you get a good laugh for it? Got what you came to get? Maybe? Very good. You came a long way for that, thank you.”

Postecoglou then moved on to answer other questions but was clearly still annoyed and made a thinly-veiled dig back at the reporter in a reply about his ambitions at Spurs.
The Australian, 57, said: “All I can do is just try to work hard like I have everywhere else. We’re in the early part of it. As I said, it’s a massive football club, a massive opportunity and a massive challenge here.

“That’s what we’ll try to do, bring success to one of the biggest football clubs in the world, big enough to make up fake jumpers to be a presence.”
Postecoglou said earlier this week that “it was fair to say I’m not relaxed about” the situation involving Kane and that it did no one any favours for the situation to drag on.
The German reporter’s first question before his skit was whether the Spurs boss still felt that way, to which Postecoglou simply replied: “That was two days ago and nothing has changed.”
