Former Tottenham striker Teddy Sheringham has compared the club’s first choice hitman Harry Kane with legend Jurgen Klinsmann, who is currently in charge of the US national football team.

Kane came through the ranks at Spurs before going on to have a fantastic debut season in the Premier League. He was so instrumental with goals and overall play that Kane almost won the PFA Player of the Year award had it not been for Eden Hazard winning the league title with Chelsea. Kane is already being linked with a huge money move to Manchester United, but he has so far resisted any attempts.

It is expected that Kane would join a big club sooner rather than later. For the time being, he will be held by Tottenham supporters as the next Jurgen Klinsmann. The German played at a number of clubs across the world like Bayern Munich, but he is also known for his spell with Tottenham. He was one of the fan favourites at White Hart Lane. Now, he has achieved immense success as a manager.

Following his stint with the German national team during the 2006 World Cup, Klinsmann has moved to the United States in order to revive the US national team.

Despite the recent poor performance at the Gold Cup, and rumours that he was about to be relieved of his post on the web, Klinsmann seems set to stay.

“As a player, he reminds me of Klinsmann, that enthusiasm that Jurgen had when he first came to the club, that bounding stride, I think Harry has that. He runs at defenders, can hold the ball up and the most important thing is that he scores goals. He scores all types of goals as well. He gets in the six-yard box, he’ll strike it from the edge of the box and outside the box,” said Sheringham. Kane will lead the line when Tottenham visit Old Trafford this weekend.
