Steven Gerrard has admitted he is a big fan of Tottenham Hotspur’s killer Harry Kane – and his penalty shoot-out skills in particular.
With 178 Premier League goals, the Spurs scorer could become the all-time leading scorer.
The 28-year-old has also found 26 penalties in the competition and has not missed from 12 meters in over four years.
Gerrard was Liverpool’s first point of contact for penalty kicks during his illustrious career at Anfield.
But the Aston Villa manager is also impressed by the England international in this regard.
Asked further by Gary Neville The intersection who he would give a penalty at the last minute, he said: “Harry Kane. Just like… wow. The technique, the speed and accuracy. I think he can do that [penalties]. Fair play for him.”
Kane is not flawless from the penalty spot.
Corresponding transfer markethe’s missed five for Tottenham in all competitions but we’re talking over an 11-year span, which is phenomenal – and two were in the Europa League in his younger days.
Gerrard is right – Kane is absolutely deadly from 12 yards these days and he would probably be most people’s pick.
The Lilywhites attacker has so many threads on the bow it’s just ridiculous.
Even when he doesn’t score through the boatload, he assists and that’s shown by the fact that he set up three goals against Gerrard’s Aston Villa side last week.
We’re talking about the complete footballer.
