Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
England Under-21 international Kane has been in superb form this season and was the star of the show at White Hart Lane on New Year’s Day.
The 21-year-old scored twice and gave a man-of-the-match performance against Chelsea in the 5-3 victory in the Premier League clash.
Scholes, a former United midfielder, was impressed with Kane and made him his Player of the Week.
The former England international wrote in The Independent: “Player of the week: Harry Kane. Two fine goals against Chelsea.”
Scholes was also appreciative of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and wrote: “Manager of the week Pochettino. A draw with United then a great win over Chelsea with five goals against a Mourinho team.”
Many will back Scholes’s choices, and indeed because of Kane and Pochettino, Tottenham have had a successful festive period which has seen them move up to fifth in the Premier League table with 34 points from 20 matches, just two points behind fourth-placed Southampton.
