Blackburn and Newcastle Legend, Alan Shearer has lauded Tottenham striker, Harry Kane, saying the 24-year-old is capable of performing for LaLiga giants, Barcelona and Real Madrid after breaking his Premier League goal record.
Recall that, Kane smashed Alan Shearer’s record for most Premier League goals in a calender year after scoring a hat-trick in Spurs’ 5-2 win over Southampton on Boxing Day.
Shearer believes Kane can replicate his Spurs goal scoring form in any club in the world after his record was broken by the England International.
“Not only has he beaten my calendar-year record in the Premier League, but with his second successive hat-trick he eclipsed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for goals in all competitions in 2017 for club and country,” Shearer wrote in The Sun.
“That is some company to be in but, believe me, he could score goals for Barcelona and Real Madrid as well. There lies the problem for Spurs going forward, of course
“The club will not want to move into their brand new stadium without their biggest star.
“One of our own’ as the Spurs faithful chant.
“But things have stalled a bit on the pitch after title tilts in the last two seasons, although they have been impressive in the Champions League,” he added.
Kane is on track to win a third consecutive Premier League Golden Boot, something only Shearer (1994-97) and Thierry Henry (2003-06) have done previously.
