The Argentine, who took over at the North London outfit from Southampton in 2014, has shaped a young team into genuine trophy contenders.
Chelsea are the champions and the table never lies.
Kane finished the season on 29 goals after bagging four against Leicester City as his side thrashed the Foxes 6-1 on Thursday night, before claiming the match ball again on Sunday as he put three past Hull in a 7-1 win.
Harry Kane has joined Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie as the only players to win Golden Boot for two successive seasons.
Although Sam Clucas pulled one back for Hull midway through the second period, Victor Wanyama, Kane, Ben Davies' thunderbolt and Toby Alderweireld turned the final game of the season into a rout.
The England global hit seven goals in two games to run away with the Golden Boot, scoring four more goals than Romelu Lukaku, finishing on 29. There was a nagging fear he could not score when the pressure is on, enough concern to suggest Kane would just be another young English footballer who would never be the player we hoped he could be. It is the first time I've scored four goals in my professional career.
The Spurs striker and England global trailed Romelu Lukaku by two goals heading into the penultimate match of the season, but scored four times against Leicester to move into the lead.
N'Koudou has won 64% of his take-ons in the Premier League this season.
Spurs have been linked with several world class players recently, including reported interest in Juventus right-back Dani Alves; but don't expect any big name, expensive signings if they do not fit in with Mauricio Pochettino and his Spurs philosophy.
Hopefully I can get the Golden Boot and hopefully Hugo Lloris can get the Golden Glove. Now he has to keep going and try to finish in the best way and look forward to next season.
Having taken his tally to 26 league goals to move above Everton's Romelu Lukaku (24) and Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez (23), Kane vowed there would be no let-up in the final game of the season when Spurs visit relegated Hull City.
In-form striker Kane opened the scoring in the 11th minute as he lashed home a lovely low left-footed effort in to the bottom corner from the edge of the area. They are happy here, we have an exciting project.
