Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino was asked at today’s press conference whether he would swap Harry Kane for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Real Madrid and Portugal star has arguably been the world’s best player alongside Lionel Messi for a number of years, but the Spurs boss insists that he would not swap Kane for any player in the world and that includes the Real Madrid star.
Kane returned to training this morning with his Tottenham team mates, following his recent hamstring strain which had kept him sidelined for the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at the weekend.
The striker will be assessed ahead of kick off against Real Madrid at Wembley tomorrow on whether he will feature in the match.
Pochettino told the press conference, when asked if he would swap Kane for Ronaldo: “They are two incredible players. We have to show respect for what Cristiano has done through the years and continues doing.
“For me, Harry is one of the best new players in the world, if not the best, and I would not swap him for anyone.”
