Pundit replies when asked if Kane is better than Ibrahimovic ahead of Man United v Tottenham
Phil Thompson compares Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Harry Kane ahead of Tottenham's trip to Manchester United
Phil Thompson believes that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in better form than Harry Kane this season.
Ibrahimovic has been in good form for Manchester United in recent weeks following his summer transfer to the club on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
The 35-year-old has already proved his worth to Jose Mourinho’s side by scoring 13 goals in all competitions for Manchester United since his move to England.
Kane, meanwhile, has earned a reputation as one of the Premier League’s top strikers in recent months.
Although former Liverpool man Thompson feels that Kane is full of potential, he believes that Ibrahimovic is a level above on current form.
Asked who he thinks is better, Thompson told Sky Sports News HQ on Friday morning: “Ibrahimovic. The guy’s a superstar.
“Harry Kane is still a young man, he is an absolutely superb player but I think Ibrahimovic is ahead of him at the moment.”
Manchester United are preparing to host Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s Premier League showdown at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are currently 13 points behind leaders Chelsea after a slow start to the campaign under Mourinho.
