Mauricio Pochettino compares Harry Kane to Lionel Messi

We know Harry Kane is an absolute gun up front for Tottenham, but surely he’s no Lionel Messi? 

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino seems to think so. The 23-year old English striker will make his return from an ankle injury against Watford tonight. He’s been a crucial figure in Tottenham’s title fight, scoring 19 goals so far.

“There is no doubting that Harry is our best player.

“It’s like with Barcelona – Messi is injured for one month, but Barcelona are still winning.”

“Then Messi is available again and do you say, ‘Mmmm, I don’t know!’?
