Tottenham flop Sergei Rebrov praises in-form striker Harry Kane

Defence - Spurs v Chelsea

The Ukrainian is impressed with the England under-21 striker.

There is little doubt that Harry Kane has had a breakthrough season at Tottenham Hotspur. The 21-year-old striker has found the back of the net 26 times this season and is seemingly on the verge of an England call-up.

His form has obviously not gone unnoticed by those involved in the game, including a former Tottenham flop.

Sergei Rebrov was in England this week. The Ukrainian is now the manager at Dynamo Kiev, who took on Everton in the UEFA Europa League last night. Before the game, which Dynamo lost 2-1, he mentioned his former team, and their current leading light. The London Evening Standard quotes him as saying:

"I'm glad because I think Tottenham are getting better. Harry Kane is a very good forward, scoring not just lots but some very important goals."

Of course Rebrov would have given his arm for just a slice of the form Kane has been in during his stint at Tottenham.

He was signed by Spurs for a whopping £11 million back in May 2000, as reported by The Guardian. At the time that was a club record fee, but he never looked like repaying it.

He scored just 15 goals in his two unmemorable years at White Hart Lane. Kane, who has scored more goals than Rebrov did in two years in the last few months, will be hoping he never goes through a similar spell of form at Tottenham.
