Scholes in awe of Tottenham captain Harry Kane

Paul Scholes has said that Harry Kane is a unique center forward.

Kane has scored 26 and created 14 in 36 games this season, a record that Scholes finds unique for an out and out number nine.

“It’s difficult to compare him to other center-forward around Europe or the world because I have never seen a center forward that makes so many goals for people,” said Scholes.

“It’s almost like he’s a stroke between a number nine and a number ten. (And he’s doing that under Mourinho) more than I have ever seen.

“His record (goals and assists). He knows where people are. He’s got the cleverness to see people around him that are sometimes in better positions. And sometimes they aren’t.

“I have never seen him as an out-and-out number nine because I don’t think the pace is his strength, is it? He’s a great finisher and he scores great goals from outside the box, which not many center forwards do really – his assists record and the way he brings others into the game, he has to do that because he doesn’t have that lightning pace that gets him away from people.”
