Former PL star details why Harry Kane is the world’s best centre-forward

World’s greatest

It’s been another big season for Tottenham’s Harry Kane and many are now suggesting that the player is the best centre-forward in the world.

The Englishman has notched 22 goals so far this season, only 7 away from his total last season with plenty of time to spare.

Not only that, he has performed on every level this season, including the Champions League in which Spurs well and truly impressed in the group stages.

That has lead to big comparisons between the best in world football, having outscored anyone and everyone in 2017.

Now, former Premier League star Robbie Savage has detailed why Kane is the best centre-forward in the world.

“Kane is the ultimate package as a No.9 even though none of his attributes are exceptional,” Savage explained. 

“He is quick, but not lightning fast.

“He is good in the air, but perhaps not the greatest header of a ball.

“His hold-up play is not quite up to the level of Mark Hughes in his heyday, although I would add that part of Kane’s game against Manchester United last month, and the way he brought others into the game, was exceptional.

“His finishing, off either foot, is fantastic – although the stats say he does not have the highest strike rate in terms of shots-per-goal ratio.

“Of course, I’m not saying Kane is better than Lionel Messi, Neymar or Cristiano Ronaldo.

“They are all-around magicians, not just strikers who are the focal point of an attack.”
