Former PSG midfielder David Ginola says Harry Kane can’t be compared to Cristiano Ronaldo yet
Two of the most fearsome strikers of the world are about to face each other again in Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur’s game at Wembley Stadium in the Champions League.
Tottenham superstar Harry Kane cannot be considered at the same level as Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, says David Ginola, GOAL reports.
A lot of speculations have been going around about Kane reaching the same level as the Portuguese, but former France midfielder Gionla says it’s too early to talk about Kane in such heights.
Ginola told talkSPORT: “You can’t compare Harry Kane to Ronaldo…yet.”
He thinks the two players are not even that similar, which makes it hard to draw comparisons.
“Even the qualities are not the same. Ronaldo is about pace – I’m not saying that Harry Kane is slow, but he’s not the same kind of player.”Ronaldo opens up about retirement plans Nedim Maric – Cristiano Ronaldo is still playing at a top-level even at 34 years of age.Juventus is looking to end the 23-year-old drought of not winning…
Kane’s team-mate, Jan Vertonghen spoke highly about the striker, saying he wouldn’t swap the English striker for anyone at the moment.
“Harry for me is one of the best No 9s in Europe, maybe the best. He shows that every week and I wouldn’t swap Harry for any player at the moment.”
However, there are some who disagree with Ginola’s statement. For example, Steffen Freund said the England striker is a natural “successor” to Ronaldo.
The ex-Spurs winger Ginola also said both players could do great under each team: “You could swap Harry Kane for Ronaldo, obviously, because Ronaldo will do some great stuff for Spurs and Harry Kane will do the same for Real Madrid.”
He said Ronaldo simply works really hard and sends the right message to upcoming prospects, inspiring them put in the work to succeed.
“But, on the other hand, Ronaldo has done so much for the game and he works so hard. All the credit to him because for the last five or six years, even more than that, since he played football, every year he is sending the right message to youngsters – if you want to stay at the top, you need to work really hard.”
Kane has outscored Ronaldo so far this season, with the Tottenham attacker having scored 13 times in just 12 matches, compared to Ronaldo’s 7 goals in 11 games.
