Harry Kane is the best no.9 in the Premier League, according to Germany legend Lothar Matthaus
The former Bayern Munich World Cup winner has played with and against some of the best in the game, including the likes Marco van Basten, Rudi Voller and Jurgen Klinsmann.
Matthaus won the Ballon d’Or winner in 1990, the same year he won the World Cup, and the German legend believes Kane is better than Sergio Aguero at Man City and Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata right now.
“Kane guarantees you goals and he has scored so many,” Matthaus wrote in his FourFourTwo column.
“He works for the team, he is strong and his body language is amazing.
“You can see just how much he wants to score. He’s crazy about it.
“He is so focused on the ball when it comes to him.
“I like it when a player has that look – he doesn’t want to let that chance go.”
Matthaus also explains that he believes Kane can be the new face of English football and that England fans should be happy to have a striker in the same league as Alan Shearer and Gary Lineker.
Matthaus stops short of calling the 24-year-old the best in Europe adding: “That title goes to Robert Lewandowski – “the most complete no.9 in the world right now,” he explained.
Kane misses the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil but Mauricio Pochettino will hope he will be ready in time for the crunch north London derby clash with Arsenal at the Emirates next week.
