Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has compared Harry Kane to Wayne Rooney.

Ferdinand was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium yesterday as part of BT Sport’s punditry team for the match against Leeds United and was impressed by what he saw from the Spurs marksman.

Kane found the back of the net from the penalty spot after Steven Bergwijn was brought down just inside the Leeds box.

The 28-year-old turned provider when he played a brilliant ball into the path of Heung-min Son for the South Korean to score his 100th goal for the club.

Ferdinand was full of praise for Kane and also drew comparisons with Thierry Henry for how he has become an all-round player who can not only find the back of the net, but also deliver for his team-mates.

Kane and Son have combined for a 13th time this term, matching the tally set by Alan Shearer and Chris Sutton at Blackburn in 1994-95.
