Mauricio Pochettino described it as great news for the whole Tottenham family to see Dele Alli and Harry Kane recognised for their outstanding seasons by the PFA.
The nominations were announced on Thursday morning and Harry is up for both Players’ Player and Young Player awards while Dele is on the shortlist for Young Player of the Year.
Harry has recovered from two ankle injuries to score 24 goals in 31 matches this season, including 19 in 24 in the Premier League.
Dele, who turned 21 this week, has enjoyed a sensational season with 19 goals in all competitions.
“It’s very good news for the players, I’m sure they are happy and the whole Tottenham family is very happy that both have been nominated,” said Mauricio.
“Harry is a player with a character and personality. He’s fit, available, very fresh in his body and his mind and he is very hungry to score again.
“Dele is showing his quality and great potential. He has scored 19 goals, a big achievement and there are still a lot of games to play.
“After nearly two years in the Premier League, the stats and the things he’s doing on the pitch are fantastic and it’s good for him and the team.”
