After it was originally ruled that Christian Eriksen had scored Tottenham's second goal at Stoke last week, the club -presumably at the request of Kane - successfully appealed that the ball had in fact touched the England striker last before entering the goal.
Kane now trails Salah by five goals with five league games left to play, and will hope to decrease the deficit against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday (AEST).
Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge said the decision should inspire the Egyptian to go on and win the prize, but Pochettino was having none of it.
Past year against (Romelu) Lukaku it was a tough competition and he finished the season really strongly with the amount of goals he scored.
No matter what, this ends the string of Young Player of the Year awards won by Dele Alli, who didn't even make the shortlist this season, despite being fourth in the Premier League in assists with 10 and scoring two more goals this season than Rashford.
When told about the numerous records Salah could break this season, Henderson replied to BT Sport: 'Yeah, he told me he's going to claim all of them!
"We've seen what he has done before". We are more than happy to live in a society in most of the world that we feel freedom to talk, to say, to write, to do what we want. Why? "But it's not a big issue, not a big deal for the team".
"It's also very close, it's just seven goals but let's see", he added. Harry Kane really wants that Golden Boot.
"He was disappointed because he never wanted to create this".
That, however, doesn't appear to have put a stop to things.
"That was what happened". They will be crowned Premier League champions if Manchester United fail to beat West Brom on Sunday afternoon. We have already shown that we are ready to compete.
"We need to be consistent during the whole season and be the best team like Manchester City are doing today".
