The Tottenham star picked the quickest players at White Hart Lane
Talking to Sky Sports, Tottenham hotshot Harry Kane has been dishing the dirt on which of his teammates are the speediest, and such is the pace available in the squad, the England man had to split his choice into two categories.
“I'd say it's probably between Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon," the striker said when asked who was the speediest. "Lennon is probably faster over a shorter distance but Walker is over a longer distance.”
Lennon has long been held up as one of the most rapid players in the Premier League, and so it was some surprise to see the winger often on the sidelines in the early months of the season under Mauricio Pochettino. The England man has since moved on loan to Everton, where he is able to complete a permanent transfer this summer if the two clubs can agree a fee - according to the Telegraph.
Full-back Walker, on the other hand, makes use of his overlapping runs from deep, often in support of Lennon in previous seasons, getting into dangerous crossing positions beyond the opponents back four. When he is at full speed he is arguably one of the quickest players in the Premier League, and depending on your definition of speed, it looks like Kane would have Walker down as beating Lennon in anything longer than a brief sprint.
Console game Fifa 15, which has thoroughly researched ratings for each player, seems to agree with Kane's comments, as Lennon has the highest acceleration of any player at the club (93 out of 100) but Walker trumps the winger when it comes to overall spring speed (93 compared to Lennon's 91).
