Tim Sherwood says record-breaker Kane must aspire to reach Lewandowski level

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane last night became the fastest player in Champions League history to reach 20 goals in the competition.

The 26-year-old scored twice in a 4-2 win over Olympiacos a the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and Spurs have now qualified for the last 16.

The England captain has taken just 24 games to reach the 20-goal mark, which is two fewer than Italian legend Alessandro Del Piero.

It is a feat that certainly suggests him as being one of football’s top number nines.

In the eyes of Tim Sherwood though, Kane needs to aspire to reach the level of Robert Lewandowski.

The Bayern Munich striker continued his unbelievable form with another four goals against Red Star Belgrade, taking his tally to 27 in just 20 appearances.

Sherwood said on BeIn: “You talk about Harry Kane being world-class, if he needs to aspire to be anybody it needs to be this boy [Lewandowski].


“He is a level above and I think Harry will see that and aspire to be him. He is absolutely top drawer.

TBR’s view – Lewandowski leads the way

Certainly in 2019, lethal Lewandowski appears to have hit a different gear.

He is undeniably football’s top marksman right now.

Kane is having another fine goalscoring season despite Spurs’ collective struggles, but the 31-year-old is putting almost every team he faces to the sword.

Kane has a brilliant mentality, and won’t be happy seeing Lewandowski as the top dog and can use his level to get even better.
