Mourinho hails Harry Kane: ‘Tottenham are so lucky to have him’

Jose Mourinho has hailed Tottenham Hotspur captain and star forward Harry Kane as one of the best strikers in the world. The England international scored two goals on Sunday as Tottenham went past Leicester City (3-0) for Spurs to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to five games.

“It was two very important goals for us and the third one was Harry Kane‘s goal. It was amazing quality,” he told Sky Sports“Of course he is [one of the best]. It is difficult for me to compare strikers but I had almost in every club some of the best. Of course, Harry is second to none. It’s just different qualities. As a striker, as a goalscorer, a team player and a leader, he is fantastic.”

“It is difficult to make him better but the better the team is, the better he can be. It depends more on us. He is an amazing professional and works very well. He cannot play any better. He is a fantastic striker and Tottenham is so lucky to have him.” The win lifted Tottenham into sixth place, two points ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers who will play Crystal Palace on Monday.
