Jurgen Klopp feels suggestions that Harry Kane is labouring for Tottenham are “rubbish”.
England captain Kane won the World Cup Golden Boot as his country reached the semi-finals of Russia 2018 but has appeared short of his best over recent weeks.
Klopp refused to accept the notion that Kane is currently below par as Liverpool prepare to travel to Wembley on Saturday.
“That’s just rubbish, I would say,” he told Sky Sports.
“After a World Cup when England got so far in the tournament they have no rest.
“He had maybe two weeks [of] holiday. He cannot get the rest
“He will find his form, maybe at the weekend. And he has delivered already. We judge Harry Kane because he is at the highest level.
“If you go through the line-up of Tottenham you can see that they can replace Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris [both of whom are injured this weekend]. They have a very good squad used to all situations.”
