Kane can be even better than Batistuta - Pochettino

After scoring four goals in the space of a week, Tottenham star Harry Kane earned high praise from his manager Mauricio Pochettino after the ex-Southampton boss drew comparisons between his old worldwide team-mate and Spurs' clinical striker, according to the Daily Mail.

The England worldwide has established himself as one of Europe's best strikers and Pochettino has backed him to enjoy an even more illustrious career than Batistuta.

"I think he was good today", Pochettino continued. "Very strong mentality; very strong shot, great professional".

Kane returned to his traditionally prolific ways with two goals in a stunning 3-0 victory at Everton on Saturday that brought to an end yet another unproductive August for the striker, who has never scored a top flight goal in that month. But Harry can be better [than him]. I think it was cramp.

Tottenham Hotspur are ready to compete for the Premier League title after putting the finishing touches to their squad late in the transfer window, striker Harry Kane has said.

Pochettino certainly deserves his share of credit for making Kane a first team regular when he arrived at White Hart Lane ahead of the 2014-15 season, although the manager was keen to praise only the player himself.

Kane said that Spurs are expecting a good Champions League campaign this year, and it is a big motivation for them to beat teams like Dortmund and Real Madrid.

With the former Newcastle man finally showing some signs of the form which led to Spurs breaking their club record fee for him last summer, many were fearing that the injury he sustained could keep him out, just at the time he was starting to improve.

"Batistuta scored goals like Harry scored today". The hugely dominant display at Everton, therefore, could not have been more timely.

"If we can get through this group, it would be a big statement for the club".

"The position is dependant on the tactic and the dynamic of how you want to play".
