Future Ballon d’Or Winner?
Harry Kane has been on fire in the Premier League for quite some time now and while his talismanic performances are bound to invite comparisons with the world’s best, Rio Ferdinand has put in his opinion on the teasing prospect.
The legendary Manchester United defender acknowledged Kane’s prowess in front of goal and declared him on par with Messi and Ronaldo in terms of getting on the scoresheet.
While the Tottenham striker is yet to prove his mettle in the Champions League and on the international stage, Ferdinand’s statement will reverberate across Europe, having faced elite forwards in his time at Old Trafford. Although comparisons may seem a bit far fetched, statistics suggest that Rio’s claims are genuine indeed.
For Harry Kane though, sterner tests await. The FIFA World Cup, 2018 will prove to be a litmus test for the forward with England relying heavily on his poaching abilities.
