Ex-Tottenham Hotspur player, Ronny Rosenthal has now claimed that Harry Kane is a better player than two of his former teammates, Teddy Sheringham and Jurgen Klinsmann.

Kane managed to notch his Tottenham totals to 188 goals in 287 games this season, while his career totals sit at 204 goals in 352 games (Wikipedia).

Not only this, but Kane has an impressive 32 goals in 45 games for England, as well as a World Cup golden boot to go with his two from the Premier League.

Teddy Sheringham pulled on the Tottenham shirt between 1992 and 1997, racking up 98 goals in 197 games for the Lilywhites. However, his career totals finished at 361 goals in 926 games (Wikipedia).

Jurgen Klinsmann, on the other hand, managed 38 goals in 68 games for Tottenham, while boasting 284 in 620 across his entire career (Wikipedia).

Many would argue that if Kane managed between 600 and 900 games before he retires, he would obliterate these statistics, and Rosenthal has argued that the England captain is already a better player than his two predecessors.

Having played with both Klinsmann and Sheringham at Spurs in the 1990s, Rosenthal, who appeared 88 times for Spurs, had this to say when asked who was better out of Kane, Klinsmann, and Sheringham, Rosenthal added: “Kane. His ability speaks for itself. Fantastic talent. He’s only 27 and it’s amazing what he’s done so far. He’s a great leader as well and a very nice guy off the pitch. (Instagram Direct Messages)”
