Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world

  Pochettino: Kane is one of the best strikers in the world Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino called Harry Kane one of the best strikers in the world after the England striker scored four times as Spurs hammered Leicester 6-1 at the King Power Stadium on Thursday night. Kane’s quadruple strike moved him to the top of the pile in the race for the Golden Boot, two goals clear of Everton’s Romelu Lukaku. Spurs travel to Hull City at the weekend, whilst Everton will face Arsenal at the Emirates, so it looks like Kane will end the season as the league’s top scorer for the second year in a row. When asked about his striker, Pochettino said: “To be fair when he was injured, other players scored goals, like Son, or (Dele) Alli or (Christian) Eriksen but it’s true that Harry Kane is our main striker and one of the best in the world.” It’s hard to argue with the manager’s assessment of his star man as he continually finds the back of the net and, if he can continue in this manner, we can all envisage a bright future for Tottenham. Kane, along with the likes of Alli and Eriksen will look to go one better next season and win the Premier League title, although to do so, they will have to quickly come to terms with playing at their temporary home of Wembley Stadium, a place where they’ve had very limited success in recent years.
