An article on ESPN.com says former Germany and Bayern Munich star Lothar Matthaus believes Tottenham striker Harry Kane could play for any club in Europe
It starts by saying Kane has been in a rich vein of form with the England striker netting 50 goals for club and country in 2017 on Saturday including a brace in our 5-1 demolition of Stoke City at Wembley.
The article says Matthaus believes only Bayern Munich number nine Robert Lewandowski is superior to Kane in his position at present, adding the at the 24-year-old has youth on his side.
The article adds that habkbv already beaten Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid during the group stages, we of course drew another heavyweight opponent in the Champions League in Juventus.
“Everybody in Europe is talking about Harry Kane,” Matthaus said in a column in the The Sun
“And they will certainly be talking about him even more in Italy now Spurs have drawn Juventus in one of the ties everybody will want to see.
Matthaus added: “I really like Kane. If I was a manager, and had the money, I would go out and buy him tomorrow.The only player in his position I’d prefer in all of Europe is Robert Lewandowski — and Kane is a lot younger and getting better.
He continued: “He works so hard, makes so many runs, moves into the right positions and creates things for his team. The other thing, which nobody can deny, is that he knows how to score.
“That is the greatest thing any striker can have and he can find the net from any distance, with either foot and his head.”
Matthaus added: “He adapts to any situation, instinctively, and always seems to be in the right place, which is a gift of the best strikers.
“There is no doubt Kane could play for any club in Europe. That includes Real Madrid or Barcelona — and he would score goals for any club.”
