By Matt Farr
Sky Sports pundit Thierry Henry admits Harry Kane is fast becoming the face of the club as ‘
The 23-year-old finished the 2016-17 Premier League season with an incredible 29 goals from just 30 appearances, having netted seven goals from his final two matches.
Kane’s goalscoring exploits saw him finish as the Premier League’s top goalscorer for the second successive season, further highlighting the striker’s meteoric rise over the last two years.
But Henry believes Kane stands out from the pack because he has ‘more qualities than only scoring goals’, hailing him as an ‘all round player’ and ‘a hell of a striker’.
He told the Premier League Daily show on Sky Sports on Monday: “Give him his credit. He’s a hell of a striker. He can score any type of goals.

“He has more qualities than only scoring goals. I admire that about him, he’s an all-round player. But he can score a lot of goals, he has that in his locker.
“A lot of people were asking questions about him, during that first season the jury was still out on him, but now I think that’s done and dusted. He is starting to be Mr Tottenham, and he deserves it.”
However, Henry also admitted that Kane must improve his record in Europe and at international level if he is to be considered a world-class striker.
Kane scored just two goals from his five appearances in European competitions this season, across both the Champions League and Europa League.
Meanwhile, he has five goals from 17 international matches, with his last international goal coming during the 2-1 friendly win over Turkey a year ago.
His form for Tottenham helped them secure a second-placed finish in the Premier League, where they also boasted the best attacking record in the league with 86 goals scored from their 38 matches.
