Graham Roberts has slammed former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry after he claimed that Harry Kane is still short of being world class.

Henry has admitted that he has no doubts that the Tottenham ace will put himself in that bracket in the future, but believes that he has to secure more success with his side before he can be put on a pedestal among the rest of the world.

Ex-Spurs player Roberts was unhappy with what Henry said on Sky Sports on Monday night and questioned how much the pundit was being paid for talking what he deemed as nonsense.

“Seriously Sky Sports you are paying Henry 3.5 million for this man to give us this insight. Even Arsenal fans I know say he talks rubbish,” Roberts said on his personal Twitter account on Monday night in reference to the Frenchman’s claims.

He then added the point about Spurs hall-of-famer Paul Gascoigne and how he never won many major honours in his career but was still regarded as one of the best.

“Thierry Henry probably does not think Gazza was world class as he never played in the European Cup for Spurs or won Champions League. What a load of rubbish.”

The ‘world class’ debate among pundits is something that he been talked about constantly in recent times, causing all kinds of debate among ex-pros and fans.

No matter what your opinion on England international Kane, there’s no doubting his ability in front of goal having won the Premier League golden boot in two successive seasons while helping Spurs to a third and second place finish.

The 24-year-old has already scored six goals in seven appearances across all competitions this season, a tally which he will surely be looking to add to on Tuesday night in the Champions League when Spurs visit APOEL Nicosia.

In other Tottenham news, Jamie Redknapp has surprisingly claimed that this Spurs player is the most under-rated in the Premier League.
