Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane on Jurgen Klinsmann comparison

Harry Kane is glad to be compared with Tottenham Hotspur great Jurgen Klinsmann, but he is not getting carried away.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is happy with comparisons with Jurgen Klinsmann and is determined to continue to score goals, according to The London Evening Standard.

The England Under-21 international has been a key player for Spurs so far this season and has been in sensational form over the past few months.

Kane has scored an unprecedented 20 goals in all competitions already this campaign, 10 of which have come in the Premier League.

The youngster is happy to have been compared with Tottenham and Germany legend Klinsmann, but he insists that he is not getting complacent.

“To be compared to a player like that is something I’m very happy with,” The London Evening Standard quotes Kane as saying. “He was a top player who scored a lot of goals for club and country so if I can score the amount of goals he did I’m sure I’ll have a fine career.”

“Any good striker would be happy with the goals I’ve scored and hopefully the run continues,” the youngster added. “I don’t want it to end here. It’s been great so far but there’s still plenty of time left. I hope I can carry on to the end and score a few more goals.”

Kane seems remarkably determined to continue scoring, and that is certainly going to be music to the ears of Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.

With Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado both struggling, Kane is now the team’s number one striker. If his goals dry up, then Spurs could be in trouble.

Although one can understand the fanfare and expectations on Kane, it would not be wise to draw comparisons with Klinsmann just yet.

While the youngster is having a truly memorable breakthrough season, he has been playing well for only a few months, not years.

This does not mean that Kane is going to fizzle out next season, but one should be careful not to big him up just yet.
