Former Tottenham winger David Ginola has said he believes it to be premature to compare Man of the Moment Harry Kane and Ginola’s former team mate Alan Shearer.
Shearer is the Premier League all time leading goalscorer with 260 goals and their is plenty of talk of Harry Kane catching the former Newcastle man and perhaps taking over that mantle.
Harry, at 24, already has 82 top flight strikes to his name but Ginola believes he has a lot more to do before being considered as the same level as Shearer.
Speaking on the Alan Brazil show on talksport the Frenchman said “Harry has a long way to go to reach the level of Alan Shearer. There is no doubt he is one of the greatest strikers of English football ever(Shearer)
“When you looked at Alan Shearer on the training ground you could see his ability to score goals was just amazing but during the game-he was the perfect competitor, a fighter on the football pitch”
Shearer believes Kane can at least come close to breaking his record following an impressive start to his career and, if he is indeed to do so, Ginola believes Harry needs to follow the example of the now BBC pundit.
“So for Harry Kane, it is just an example to follow as a striker but there is still a long way to go and he is still a young man but he has plenty to achieve”
Do you think Harry will catch Shearer’s all time record and is Ginola right to be cautious about the comparison of Kane to the former England man? Let us know your thoughts.
