Queens Park Rangers’ Charlie Austin speaks highly of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane

Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other at Loftus Road in the Premier League this afternoon.

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has been singing the praises of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Harry Kane in The Sun.

Austin will face his English compatriot in today’s Premier League clash at Loftus Road and seems to be in awe of the Spurs striker.

“He is more like a No. 10 to be honest but he finishes like an out-and-out centre-forward,” the 25-year-old told The Sun. “He is strong and so powerful…

“He’s an exceptional talent and has everything to be a top, top player. That means hard work, a chance here and there and a bit of luck, which you have to make yourself.”

Kane has been one of the best young players in the Premier League so far this season and one of the best players for Tottenham.

The 21-year-old is an ‘all-round’ striker who can score goals from inside and outside the penalty box and with his head, plays with both feet, links up play and drops into midfield to help out.

The England Under-21 international has scored 14 goals and created 19 chances in 23 Premier League appearances so far this campaign, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 58%.

Kane will be key for Tottenham this afternoon, when they take on QPR at Loftus Road in the Premier League.

The Englishman will lead the line for the North London outfit, and his work-rate and finishing will be crucial against a team expected to drop deep and defend.
