Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: 'Harry Kane better than Cristiano Ronaldo'

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: 'Harry Kane better than Cristiano Ronaldo'

He has eight goals in six games this month, six of them for Tottenham, with another double at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon. In the corresponding period, Messi has 304 goals in 279 games for Barcelona.

Kane is unlikely ever to get close to either Ronaldo or Messi's glittering career records but excitement is growing around his potential for both Spurs and England, with a World Cup in Russian Federation approaching next summer.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi support Mexico Earthquake victims. He knows it because, as he admits, he can not avoid things on Twitter.

The post Kane: Ronaldo And Messi Are My Motivation appeared first on Ronaldo has a similarly impressive record of 31 goals in 33 matches, while Messi has netted 43 goals in 41 appearances. It is too early to ask that it is to ask if Kane will ever be better than Ronaldo.

Narrow the parameters to the calendar year of 2017 and Kane looks even better.

The 24-year-old has scored 30 goals in all competitions in the last two of three seasons, notching 28 in the other season. Kane's career record in the Premier League shows 82 from 119.

"With social media these days it's hard to stay away from it".

"Everyone is tweeting this or that and you see it. Cristiano is different. Not a striker, like Messi, a different type of player", Pochettino said. "I use it, yes", he said. "Staying consistent at the top level is what it's all about".

Apoel Nicosia face Spurs in the Champions League on Tuesday, and manager Gioros Donis has been extremely complimentary about the visitors' front-man. Mauricio Pochettino will be without the suspended Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli, while Mousa Dembele (foot) and Christian Eriksen (illness) have not travelled.

Lloris, who captained France for their home tournament at Euro 2016, insists Kane can handle the pressure.

Kane is fast achieving superstar status, and one marker of it is how much he is talked about.

"But I don't want to describe him as I did after West Ham because it was so controversial the description". He is just incredible.

I want to score goals and maintain my form.

"I'm getting more mature and filling out with my body", Kane said.

"I use it", he told United Kingdom newspapers. I eat well, I recover well. "A football career is a short career, so you have got to make the most of every week every day". The atmosphere promises to be hostile.

"This season they are showing they are the best". He is our main player.

Tottenham's victory in Cyprus backed up their opening win over Borussia Dortmund and leaves them within touching distance of the Champions League's knock-out stages.

Lloris said: 'In every big team you have a big goalscorer. We were a lot more solid and patient against Dortmund and it worked. A different profile and we can not compare what is not comparable.
