Tottenham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are buzzing with the form of their number
nine ten, Harry Kane, especially if he returns ahead of tonight’s huge Champions League clash.
Following recent comparisons between the England star and Cristiano Ronaldo, his Spurs teammate Jan Vertonghen has weighed in with his view on who he’d rather have at the moment in your starting eleven. Still, many of our punters think with Ronaldo’s history, goalscoring and sheer volume of accolades make him one of the best players ever to grace the sport.
However, it must be said that, while the Portuguese superstar is entering the twilight years of his glittering career, Kane is just getting started in his.
Vertonghen said he ‘wouldn’t swap Kane for any player at the moment’ and going off current form it’s hard to argue. Indeed, Kane is in the form of his life during Cristiano’s relative early season slump, though it’s hard to bet against the Los Blancos legend.
Right now, however, we’d rather have Kane, going off this season’s form.
With that in mind, our landlord asks the question around the Tavern to an interesting response, but Tottenham fans what’s your thoughts? Is Vertonghen right?
