Tim Sherwood told Premier League Productions during their live coverage of Tottenham’s win against Sheffield United on Sunday that Harry Kane makes Carlos Vinicius look ‘top draw’ even though he hasn’t shown it himself yet.
The ex-Spurs boss also thinks that Kane makes Heung-Min Son look ‘fantastic’ as well, but he feels the Tottenham speedster is already a high-quality player.
Vinicius’, 26, game time has been limited in North London this season and given who he is playing behind then it’s no surprise that he’s warming the Spurs bench most of the time.
Nonetheless, this is what Sherwood, who brought Kane through the Tottenham ranks, had to say about the England hitman.
“You see him linking up with Son,” said Sherwood. “And he makes Son look fantastic. I think he is fantastic anyway. He could play for any Premier League team. He is underrated.
“But Harry Kane, it’s all about him. Even Vinicius has played a small number of games. Harry Kane makes him look top draw.
“And the kid might be. We haven’t seen him either. He might be the answer to it. But we’ll never know because of the (lack of) rotation at the top of the field.”
Well, for once, it wasn’t Kane stealing the show in North London on Sunday, as that honour fell to Gareth Bale.
The Welshman struck his first hat-trick in Tottenham colours since 2012, as Ryan Mason made it two wins out of two in the Premier League after his side dispatched Sheffield United.
Dele Alli was also brought back into the starting fold by Mason and it will be interesting to see how he takes off from here on in because he struggled big-time just before Mourinho arrived and when he was in the building.
