Sol Campbell has claimed Harry Kane is so good he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as all-time great Teddy Sheringham.
Former Tottenham and Arsenal defender Campbell is in no doubt about the qualities of fit-again Kane as he compared him to another player to grace White Hart Lane.
Sheringham had two spells at Spurs and is fondly remembered by supporters for not only his 124 goals in 277 appearances but also the excellence of his performances.
Campbell told 888 Sport: “The best all-round striker I ever played with was probably Teddy Sheringham. Jurgen [Klinsmann] came close.
“Teddy didn’t have the running ability but he had time, could pass, and had intelligence; he was savvy.
“There are similarities between those two guys though Kane is more mobile. They have similar technique and in the type of goals that they score.”
Fit-again Kane has been sorely missed by Tottenham since breaking down with an ankle injury in mid-September.
He returned to training this week and Mauricio Pochettino admitted on Friday he could even fast-track the striker into the starting XI for Sunday’s north London derby against Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
Pochettino’s side have drawn three successive league games, and have not won any of their last seven matches in all competitions.
Kane was the top goalscorer in the Premier League last season with 25 goals and, after a barren spell at the very start of this season, had started to get into the groove with two goals in as many games before falling injured.
In other Tottenham news, Mauricio Pochettino is set to ring the changes for Spurs’ trip to Arsenal.
