Teddy Sheringham explains why Kane is a better striker than he was

High praise indeed from the former Tottenham forward.

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Teddy Sheringham feels comparisons between Harry Kane and himself are a little unfair... because Kane has everything he had and more, according to the Daily Star.

Indeed, Sheringham believes the 22-year-old is an 'outstanding' player and says Kane has more pace than he did during his playing days.

The former Tottenham and Manchester United striker is quoted as saying by the Star: "He's an outstanding player. As for being like me, I think he's probably got a little bit more than me.

"He can do everything I could do but he's got a bit of pace as well. He can go a long way."

Were it not for Jamie Vardy, Kane would be the recipient of much more praise this season. The Tottenham and England striker is still every bit as good as last term and has eight Premier League goals to his name.

But Vardy's heroics have taken the limelight off the 22-year-old in terms of being the in-form English striker.

Vardy aside, Kane is a certainty to travel to Euro 2016 should he remain fit for the tournament and Sheringham's praise will be very welcome indeed.

Sheringham proved you don't have to be the quickest to score goals galore and the fact Tottenham's current hero is a little quicker than he was will always come in handy.
