Bent Compares Spurs Striker Kane To Wayne Rooney

Former Tottenham striker Darren Bent doesn’t feel Harry Kane is at the level of Wayne Rooney yet.

Bent doesn’t believes that Kane can be put in the top five best striker just yet – but he can get there if he works better.

The ex-Spurs striker told talkSPORT: “Kane’s certainly got the potential – if he carries on this path – to be one of the greats.

“I don’t think I put him in the top five yet. Longevity has to play a part.

“He’s got 149 Premier League goals in 213 games, which is extraordinary. But when you look at the all-round package of what he does, when Wayne Rooney was at his absolute maximum, you can’t tell me Kane is better.

“It’s only now we’re starting to see the full package with Kane. You think about all the positions Rooney got asked to play. He played everywhere.

“You forget how good he was. So to say Harry Kane is the best English centre-forward, I don’t think so.

“I’m a big fan of Kane and he’s one of those strikers where every time they get the ball around the box you’re thinking it’s a goal.

“Potentially Kane could be the best but if you’re looking at the full package, holding the ball up, bringing others into play, technique… you can’t beat Rooney.”
