Former West Ham United winger Trevor Sinclair has become the latest pundit to wax lyrical about Harry Kane and compared the Tottenham striker’s ability to influence games as a number ten to Wayne Rooney.
While Kane has always been recognised as one of the best goal scorers in the league, his all-round game finally seems to be getting the credit it now deserves.
The Tottenham striker put in another excellent display against Manchester City at the weekend after Pep Guardiola’s side found it difficult to cope with his movement, hold up play and passing.
Gary Neville claimed that the way Kane held on to the ball in tight areas before releasing runners was reminiscent of Zinedine Zidane, while Jamie Carragher labelled the Tottenham striker as the most ‘street smart’ player in the league, insisting that he made Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte look naive.
Sinclair has now also raved about how much the 27-year-old has improved over recent months.
The pundit told talkSPORT (7:03 pm, November 21, 2020): “Harry Kane’s performance tonight (against Manchester City) has reminded me of Wayne Rooney’s, how he started to come deeper later in his career.
“Technically he is so sound, his spatial awareness is so unbelievable, his weight of pass is superb.
“He has improved massively as a player.”
