Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido has been praised Harry Kane as one of the best strikers that he has seen in recent years.

Mido moved to White Hart Lane on an 18-month loan deal from Roma in 2005, scoring two goals on his debut against Portsmouth before joining permanently for the 2006/07 season.

The Egyptian scored 14 goals in one-and-a-half seasons before returning to Roma and returned for a second spell before falling out with Martin Jol over comments he made about Sol Campbell.

Harry Kane has scored 13 goals and assisted a further two in his 14 Champions
League appearances. He’s scored 26% of Tottenham’s total goals in the competition (13/50).

It has been this type of form which has seen Mido praise the England skipper for his prolific form in front of goal that now sees Kane having registered 151 goals in 230 appearances in all competitions in a Spurs shirt.

Mido has been in London this week, having attended the 3-1 win against Chelsea on Saturday evening and is an admirer of Kane.

Mido was a guest this morning on Sky Sports’ Premier League Daily programme (Wednesday November 28th, 10:45 am) and said: “One of the best, yes. Southgate has played an important role in making him better. I really like Harry Kane, he’s a great striker, one of the best I have seen in years.”
