John Terry: This Tottenham ace is one of my toughest ever opponents
By Dominic Toner
Chelsea captain John Terry has described Tottenham forward Harry Kane as one of the best players he has ever faced.
Terry, 36, has had a phenomenal career at Stamford Bridge and won 16 major trophies, including the Premier League and Champions League.
The English centre-back has faced some of the legends of the footballing world in the past two decades and has paid Spurs’ current talisman a huge respect by naming him as one of the best opponents he has lined up against.
Kane has become the main man at White Hart Lane in recent seasons and is at the core of Mauricio Pochettino’s success at Spurs.
Terry described Kane as “one of the very best I have played against” after the striker revealed on his official Instagram account he has received an upgrade on the EA Sports game FIFA 17 for his recent performances on the pitch.

Kane has been in sensational form for the north London club and has helped Spurs up to second in the Premier League table.
He has also helped Spurs to the FA Cup quarter-finals where they will face League One side Millwall on Sunday, the club he spent a spell at as a loanee during his development.
The 23-year-old forward has now kicked on to become a key member of the first-team at Spurs and has scored 24 goals in just 28 appearances this season.
Kane has struck 19 times in the league and is top of the division’s golden boot race, but may even have his sights set on Alan Shearer’s all-time record of 260 top-flight goals.
