Mauricio Pochettino has told BBC Sport that he believes Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world.
Harry Kane returned for Spurs just before the international break against Arsenal in the North London Derby at the Emirates and helped his side maintain their unbeaten start in the Premier League with a penalty in a 1-1 draw. Yesterday, Kane scored two goals in three minutes at the end of the game to change, what looked to be a painful loss for Spurs at home to West Ham, into a dramatic win which sent White Hart Lane into raptures – sealing Spurs’ first win in almost two months.
“Harry Kane is always very important, he is our main striker,” said Pochettino. “You miss that type of player when he does not play for 10 or 11 games. He is one of the best strikers in the world.”
Harry Kane now has five goals in seven Premier League games, four more than he had after the same amount of games he played last season where he went on to win the Golden Boot. Harry Kane’s importance to Tottenham has been conveyed in the last two games as he scored three goals in just over 150 minutes of football in order to help Spurs stay in touch at the top of the table.
