Harry Kane has the potential to be “one of the greats” but is not yet at Wayne Rooney’s level and remains outside of the Premier League’s top five all-time strikers
Darren Bent await a star of the present to become great for all the time, but says he hides behind aManchester United
icon for now.
The star is looking for a way to stand among the best position in English football.
This 27-year-old player has scored 200 goals in his 300 plays. He has also found the target on 32 occasions through 49 appearances for his country and now he in captain ofEngland
is capable of becoming a legend, but believes he still sits behind iconic figures such as Manchester United great Rooney as things stand.
The ex-Spurs striker told: “Kane’s certainly got the potential – if he carries on this path – to be one of the greats.
“I don’t think I put him in the top five yet. Longevity has to play a part.
“He’s got 149 Premier League goals in 213 games, which is extraordinary. But when you look at the all-round package of what he does, when Wayne Rooney was at his absolute maximum, you can’t tell me Kane is better.
“It’s only now we’re starting to see the full package with Kane. You think about all the positions Rooney got asked to play. He played everywhere.
“You forget how good he was. So to say Harry Kane is the best English centre-forward, I don’t think so.
“I’m a big fan of Kane and he’s one of those strikers where every time they get the ball around the box you’re thinking it’s a goal.
“Potentially Kane could be the best but if you’re looking at the full package, holding the ball up, bringing others into play, technique… you can’t beat Rooney.”
Rooney has 208 Premier League goals during his time in the top tier and he is the only man to have hit a double century.
