Jamie Carragher: Why Tottenham star Harry Kane is perfect package
Jamie Carragher says Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is more than just a goal-scorer
Jamie Carragher says Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane is the perfect package.
The Spurs talisman scored his fifth goal in two Premier League games in a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday night.
Even when he’s going through a barren spell, he’s the type of striker that brings more
Kane ended a six-game goalless run for club and country with an impressive hat-trick in a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth last month.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher explained why he was never concerned that the 22-year-old striker could prove a one-season wonder.
“There was a lot of talk about Kane possibly being a one-season wonder, but there’s so much more to his game than goals,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“Even when he’s going through a barren spell, he’s the type of striker that brings more. His hold-up play was fantastic, and his awareness is great. People have spoken about a similarity with Teddy Sheringham.
“When he is scoring goals combined with his all-round play, he is the perfect package. That’s why the manager never thought about leaving him out, even when he wasn’t scoring at the start of the season.”
Kane has scored against Manchester City, Bournemouth and Villa this season.
The England forward has netted five times in 15 games in all competitions this season.
The Chingford-born striker was named PFA young player of the year last season after he scored 31 times in 51 games across all competitions.
Tottenham hoisted themselves up to fifth place in the Premier League table after their 3-1 win against Villa.
