Robbie Keane has backed Tottenham Hotspur star, Harry Kane, to become the club’s all-time top scorer while hailing the Englishman as the best striker in the world.
Kane’s superbly struck spot-kick handed Tottenham a 1-0 win over Chelsea in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semifinal clash.
With that goal, Kane moved to number 4 on Tottenham’s all-time leading scorers’ list and Keane, who netted 122 goals for Spurs, backed the 25-year-old to climb to the very top.
“He’s tremendous,” Keane stated, as quoted by Daily Mail.
“I’m sure he’ll stay at this club for a long time. He loves it here. There’s no question that he can get to Jimmy Greaves’ record. What I like about Harry is that… everyone keeps talking about “ah, next year is he going to be good?” He keeps doing it.”
“I’m sick of people saying “is he tired?” because he keeps banging the goals in and that spurs him on. When you speak to him he gets annoyed when people keep mentioning it and then he just keeps coming on the pitch and keeps scoring goals.”
“For me at this moment in time, he’s the best No 9 in the world,” he concluded.
Kane struggled with fatigue at the start of the season due to an extended World Cup campaign. Thankfully, he has put the concerns behind him and has once again emerged as the clubs leading scorer this season, netting 20 goals in 30 appearances across all competitions.
