Former England defender Paul Parker says Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is better than his countryman Harry Kane, as per TalkSport.
Parker feels that Vardy, 32, is harder to stop than Spurs’ hitman Kane and has praised Brendan Rodgers for the way that he has managed his top marksman.
He said: “I would rather play with Jamie Vardy in my team than Harry Kane, because I know what I’m getting week-in, week-out. When I watch people jog around and not even bother to try and make a tackle and come off the pitch with clean shorts… I’m sorry, call me a dinosaur, but I would rather just play with Vardy.
“Put him up there and you’ll know he’ll make a bad ball into a good ball. I’d much rather play against Harry Kane, all day long. I’d fancy my chances; every time I’ve seen people try to beat him up, he just accepts it. [Vardy]’s working with coach now who has been very respectful to him. He has said: ‘You’re better than just chasing balls over the top’.”
TBR’s View – Vardy is the man on better form but Kane is (marginally) the better all-round striker
Both strikers are sensational but Kane has done the business in the Champions League and clinched the World Cup Golden Boot.
Vardy is on better form right now and has a Premier League winner’s medal; he is electric and Rodgers has certainly got the best out of him.
