Harry Kane similar to Frank Lampard, says Ian Wright

The former forward has also said the Tottenham Hotspur striker won't score as many goals this season.


Speaking on BT Sport’s Matchday Live with Fletch and Sav programme, broadcast from 10am on Saturday mornings, Ian Wright says he doesn’t see Tottenham star Harry Kane repeating the feats of last season.

The forward was in fantastic form during his debut Premier League campaign as a first-team regular, ending up the second-highest scorer in the division behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

The pressure is firmly on him this season to repeat those feats, with Spurs heavily reliant on him to score goals as they aim for the Champions League places once again.

Wrigh, however, doesn’t see him scoring as many.

"I don’t think he’s going to score as many as he did last season," he told Matchday Live with Fletch and Sav.

"As long as he keeps himself sharp and hits the target on a regular basis, he’ll be alright."

The impression of a Frank Lampard

One thing that saw Kane score so many goals last season was his willingness to attempt a shot at goal whatever the circumstance, with him scoring from all types of efforts as a result.

His goalscoring prowess naturally led to a number of comparisons with England strikers down the years, with a similarity to Teddy Sheringham being one of the most prevalent.

Wright, though, has suggested an altogether different player to compare him with in former England midfielder Frank Lampard.

"He gives me the impression of a Frank Lampard," he added.

"He will try and shoot when he gets his opportunity, whatever happens. Whether he gets the service or not, when he gets the opportunity to shoot, he will take that opportunity."
