Arsenal great Ian Wright on the difference between Jurgen Klinsmann and Harry Kane’s achievements at Tottenham Hotspur

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright speaks highly of Tottenham Hotspur youngster Harry Kane.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has highlighted in The Sun a key difference between Jurgen Klinsmann and Harry Kane.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane has been in brilliant form this season and has been compared to the German legend.

Klinsmann played for the North London outfit in the 1990s and established himself as a hero among the Spurs fans.

Former Arsenal forward Wright has been impressed with Kane’s display so far this campaign, and has suggested that he could get even better.

“It (hat-trick against Leicester City on Saturday) made Kane the first Tottenham player to 29 goals in all competitions – equalling Jurgen Klinsmann’s 20-year high for the club,” the 51-year-old wrote in The Sun.

“The difference was that when Klinsmann did it, he was already a superstar and World Cup winner. Kane, don’t forget, couldn’t even get into the starting line-up at the start of the season.”

It is an interesting observation from Wright, and one that is likely to make Tottenham fans proud and relish Kane's achievement more.

Kane has been scoring goals regularly this season, and with still a few more weeks left, he could take his tally even further.

Of course, comparisons between Kane and Klinsmann need to be tempered mainly because the former is only in his first proper season in the Premier League.

However, if the Tottenham youngster maintains his form and develops his game further, then he could prove to be a much more valuable asset for the North London outfit than Klinsmann ever was.
