Jurgen Klinsmann has described Harry Kane as the “complete” player and praised the club’s environment for allowing him to flourish.

The former Germany international quickly became a cult hero during his time at White Hart Lane, scoring 29 goals in our 1994-95 campaign before returning for a second spell in 1997-98.

He has tasted World Cup and European Championship glory during his career and he spoke of his admiration for Kane and his development at Spurs, with the 24-year-old their record goalscorer in the Premier League on 105 goals.

“I’m a big admirer of Harry,”:Klinsmann told the club’s website. “He’s very complete in his game.He can score with his left foot, right foot, his head and he’s a great passer of the ball. He’s a great connector as well, a little like Teddy was. He was always complete as a player as well.

He added: “I’m even happier because he comes out of that great culture created by Spurs, a product of the academy. That makes you super-proud because you feel even more connected with him.I just think that the foundation of every club in the world is its own products, its own players.

Klinsmann added:”He’s down to earth because he grew up with this balance and the hard-working, grounded environment at Spurs. That makes him who he is and of course, he’s worked tremendously hard for it.I always say to people ‘you are a child of your environment’ and Harry is certainly a child of the Spurs environment. That makes me really happy.”
