impressive performance against Leeds United, Manchester United’s former star


talked about him comparing his quality to


prime days at Manchester.

"The guys (Kane and Son) have got that relationship,”

Ferdinand told BT Sport .

“Yes, it has been worked on, but they obviously enjoy playing with each other. They complement each other.

"What Son said was interesting. ‘When Harry turns and gets on the ball, I move. He knows where I am.’

“He (Son) knows the quality that number 10 has on his back. He possesses a quality that no one else on the pitch has.

“He reminds me more and more of Wayne Rooney. Rooney used to drop into pockets, the number 10 role, he could play high up. He could do everything.

“Once he (Rooney) got into areas, he’d search a pass out. He (Kane) is all about creating opportunities to shoot or create a chance for someone else.

“Coming from deep, he has the awareness of knowing where other people are. He creates havoc when he is on the ball.”

And about Kane’s goals and assists he added:

“The last striker that was doing goals and assists at that rate is Thierry Henry, He is being talked about in that kind of company.

“He is a fantastic footballer, humble, hardworking and somebody you want to stay fit for England’s sake.”
