‘What a player’: Harry Redknapp lauds Harry Kane, compares him to Teddy Sheringham

Former Tottenham boss, Harry Redknapp, has lauded Harry Kane following the England skipper’s explosive start to the Premier League season.

Kane, along with Heung-Min Son, has been in brilliant form for Spurs, leading the Premier League assist charts with eight so far.

The England captain has started to drop into a deeper role this season, with Jose Mourinho looking to utilise the full range of attributes the Tottenham striker has.

And Redknapp, who was speaking to Talksport, has compared Kane to former England and Spurs forward, Teddy Sheringham.

What a professional. What a player. Complete all round footballer”, Redknapp said.

“He’s a little bit like Teddy Sheringham isn’t he. He can do everything. When you look at him, he trains and works at his game like you wouldn’t believe. He’ll be out there doing his shooting, wanting to improve all the time. Just an amazing attitude”.


Kane has quickly developed into one of the leading strikers in world football in recent seasons with Spurs.

Now England captain, he’ll be hoping to lead the Three Lions to success while also finally delivering a trophy for Tottenham this season.

Kane’s goalscoring probably puts him above Sheringham but you can see where Redknapp is coming from here.

Sheringham was known for his intelligence and ability to drop deep to create for other strikers. Kane has started to bring that into his game and Spurs look a devastating outfit going forward now.

The sky really is the limit this season and Redknapp will be sat thinking what if he had the chance to manage Kane in his current form.
