‘He gets the absolute best out of the ability that he has got’ – Premier League Manager Likens Tottenham Star To Chelsea Legend

Published

Harry Kane has exorcised his ghosts of August as he has found his scoring boots in September. The 24-year-old striker scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund and will be looking to do the same as we face Swansea at Wembley, after grabbing a double in the 3-0 win over Everton last weekend.

The brace against the Toffees helped Kane get past the 100-goal mark for us and even though the striker is on fire, Paul Clement, the Swansea manager, does not have any special plans to contain the £100,000-a-week star.

As quoted by the Standard, the former Chelsea coach said:

“You have to make sure you’re trying to control him (Kane) because he has a lot of different qualities. But I’ve had these situations before, when you’re playing against sides with an outstanding talent.

“How much do you really try and pin that down? Then you get hurt somewhere else.

“You’ve just got to have sound defensive principles as a team, so hopefully you will control him and their other threats as well.”

Kane has been on an incredible growth path with us and has constantly broken scoring records. Clement also believes that Kane is on the path to greatness but as usual, only time will tell if the Englishman does become a legend of the game.

“Some of the strikers I have worked with have been at the very top for a number of years and have won things at national team level, European level and club level as well,” Clement said.

“He’s certainly moving in that direction but only time will tell if he ends up being one of the real greats.

“I don’t know him personally but some of my staff know him from Tottenham and they say what a professional he is and how hard he works at his game.”

Kane, As Good As Lamps?

Clement did make a bit of a controversial remark as he added that Kane reminded him of Chelsea legend Frank Lampard.

“He reminds me of Frank Lampard, who I worked with at Chelsea, in that way as he gets the absolute best out of the ability that he has got.

“The statistics when you look at him physically, what he does as a striker, he really works.

“He’s getting statistics you’d be proud of as a central midfielder. He really puts a shift in.”

That comparison isn’t the greatest to make but to be honest, Kane does seem to score goals whenever he wants, something Lampard did during his playing days at Chelsea.

If Kane can help us win a few trophies, that would be great too, and hopefully he does it this season.
