Male United fan says ‘Cavani and Zlatan are better than Kane’ in stunning talkSPORT call
A talkSPORT caller left Sports Bar hosts Andy Goldstein and Jason Cundy absolutely stunned on Tuesday night as he claimed Harry Kane is not a first-rate striker.
In reality, Karan the Manchester United fan thinks there are a lot of veteran frontmen that are still better than the Tottenham star – including Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Why he contacted to discuss the England captain is anyone’s guess too – Tottenham weren’t even playing.
They’re not in action till Thursday, when they play Ludogorets in the Europa League.
However that didn’t stop Karan from getting something off his chest – apparently we go on far too much about how excellent Kane is.
It’s not like we’re the only ones. Gary Neville – the Manchester United legend – compared Kane to Zinedine Zidane over the weekend.
The striker didn’t rating, but he was pulling all the strings in Tottenham’s 2-0 win over Manchester City, with Neville stating he was ‘messing’ with City’s protectors ‘like you would not think’.
” You’re saying he’s the finest striker on the planet, but he’s not! He’s not even the very best striker in the Premier League!”
Asked who is much better than the Spurs star, he responded: “Umm, Sergio Aguero? He can’t touch his boots!
” Harry Kane, you say he’s the very best striker in the world? He’s not better than Robert Lewandowski …
” He flopped for England at the World Cup, on the big phase, the semi-final …”.
To which Goldstein fired back: “He was the Golden Boot winner, wasn’t he?”.
” Versus Panama? Come on,” continued Karan. “He bottled it in the Champions League final versus Liverpool too. Your king Harry, he tumbled it.
” He’s not much better than Luis Suarez, not much better than Cavani, not better than Aguero …”.
Which truly set Cundy off …
” What are you on about, man? Karan, you’re telling me Cavani, a gamer Man United signed on a totally free transfer, is better than Harry Kane right now?”.
However Karan stayed with his guns, and took his argument even further.
” Cavani is world-class, take a look at the number of objectives he’s scored, take a look at how lots of titles he’s won!
” Harry Kane is not much better than Zlatan Ibrahimovic – have you seen what he’s doing in a poor Air Conditioning Milan team?”.
Ibra is in spectacular type, to be fair. The 39-year-old has actually been rolling back the years in Italy, with 11 goals and 2 helps in just ten appearances this season.
” I ‘d rather have Zlatan Ibrahimovic over Harry Kane all day long,” Karan continued.
” Kane is an excellent gamer, but what has he won? How numerous titles has he won? How lots of Champions Leagues has he won?”.
And Goldstein was so shocked, he claimed the caller was ‘the only individual in the world’ with that viewpoint, and never Zlatan himself would believe the very same.
Has he fulfilled Zlatan? The guy believes he’s GOD, let alone a much better striker than the England captain.
