Solskjaer full of praise for Harry Kane: ‘He is not bad is he?’

Harry Kane

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces his first real test as Manchester United boss as the Red Devils play championship contenders Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. The Norwegian is expecting a difficult game and has singled out Harry Kane as the Spurs’s biggest threat.

“He is not bad is he? He is a fantastic goalscorer – one of the best in the world at playing up there. Then again I have got a couple that I am happy to work with. But he is also a top, top professional. I am sure whoever plays with him and trains with him can talk more about him but from the outside, [he is] a fantastic finisher.”

After five consecutive wins against lower placed teams, Tottenham will prove to be a different challenge for Solskjaer. “You get tested every single game in the Premier League – no doubt about it – but of course this is against a top, top side,” Solskjaer said. “If we want to get closer to them and go past them we need a good performance and a good result.”
