Former Chelsea striker, Tony Cascarino believes the only attribute that Harry Kane lacks is pace and insists that every other part of his game is as almost flawless.

While Kane has been recognized as one of the best goalscorers in world football by many for the best part of six years, his all-round game seems to be getting more praise this season.

As a consequence of playing in a slightly deeper role for Tottenham this year, other aspects of his game like his passing and vision have been more prominent, with the Spurs man already notching up 13 goals and 10 assists in all competitions (

Kane has admitted that he is targeting 20 goals and 20 assists this season following the blistering start he has made to the campaign (ITV Football Show Podcast).

Cascarino hailed the Spurs star’s attitude and backed him to break many records over the next five or six years.

He told talkSPORT (14/11/20 at 7:30 am): “The only thing you can say that he hasn’t got in abundance is being really quick.

“Everything else is top level. Great attitude. Always with desire and hunger that sometimes got him injured.

“If he gets to 33 and he’s still playing for England and still playing top-flight football then he will beat all records, without a doubt.

“I think he has a standout attitude that very few have had and apart from the pace I cannot think of a weakness in his game. He’s just not blisteringly quick. He is a strong runner.”

When it was suggested to him that perhaps being injury-prone was another one of Kane’s weaknesses, the pundit responded: “Yes, he’s going to get injured because he plays the game where he makes an incredible effort to close people down.

“Some of the ankle injuries, especially one at the Tottenham stadium a couple of years back, where he closed down the fullback and when he got to the fullback he got himself injured.”
