Kane has 'potential to be one of the best' - Lloris

Kane has 'potential to be one of the best' - Lloris”

He still has some way to go before he can emulate Messi and Ronaldo in that competition, however, where Messi has scored 96 goals in 116 Champions League games and Ronaldo has 107 in 141. The Spurs star said: "I've not seen it but I'm going to text Wayne to ask him how he built it".

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are from "another galaxy" but Tottenham star Harry Kane can be one of the world's best, according to Hugo Lloris.

Pochettino was guarded in his response to questions comparing the pair, and said: "For me, Harry is one of the best strikers".

Harry Kane might have scored more goals in 2017 than many entire Premier League clubs but, with the billboards already seemingly out for his "head-to-head" with Cristiano Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium next month, some perspective was applied on Wednesday night by Hugo Lloris.

His torrent of goals is leading to incessant talk in England of whether he belongs in the "world class" category of soccer players, headed by Messi and Ronaldo for much of the past decade.

And Pochettino thinks Kane is up there with Ronaldo, if not better.

"That is something very important in football".

After another goalless August, Kane has been on fire this month with 11 goals for club and country. "If you lose your personal ambition it can become hard".

"In every big team, you have a big goalscorer". "The more I play, the more I get a sense of what defenders will do at certain times — for example, I went back across through the (defender's) legs for the second goal against Apoel; little things like that".

"We are not surprised, we know his talent, his skills, his aptitude to score important goals".

"Real Madrid have Ronaldo, Barca have Messi".

"All the praise and words I can use to describe Harry Kane, I cannot find any more".

However, Tottenham have been excellent away from home this season; they have a 100% record and have thrived when their opponents have brought the game to them.
