Manchester United legend Dimitar Berbatov has explained why Harry Kane is near the quality level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Berbatov’s comments have followed after Kane's brilliant start to the new Premier League season, where he is now near 200 goals for Spurs at the age of 27.
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski are two of the best talents in our sport,” Dimitar Berbatov told Betfair.
“Kane’s assist at the weekend [in a 3-3 draw with West Ham], that’s next level sh*t, you expect that from Kevin De Bruyne.
“The Spurs man is consistently proving that he can be that number 10, not just be up front poaching goals.
The Belgarian also took the moment to appreciate Kane’s hot partnership with Heung-min Son, which has delivered a combined 12 goals and eight assists this season.
“Kane and Son are a joy to watch, two magnificent players who know each other perfectly. Right now, they are just having fun playing together, it’s the perfect partnership,” he concluded.
