Harry Kane is “next level sh*t” and occupies a talent pool just behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, says Dimitar Berbatov, with the Tottenham striker morphing into a cultured No.10.
The England international has forged his reputation as one of the most devastating No.9s in world football.
A prolific strike rate has lifted him to the very top of the global game, with any number of sides willing to buy into his end product if an exit door were to be thrown open in north London.
Spurs continue to benefit from that ability in the present, with Kane showing in 2020-21 that he is much more than a predatory finisher in and around the box.
Assists have been added to his game, with Heung-min Son being the main beneficiary of those, and Berbatov is among those to have saluted a change that promises to make a 27-year-old frontman even more destructive in the final third.
“After Messi and Ronaldo, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski are two of the best talents in our sport,” former Spurs striker Berbatov told Betfair.
“Kane's assist at the weekend [in a 3-3 draw with West Ham], that's next level sh*t, you expect that from Kevin De Bruyne.
“The Spurs man is consistently proving that he can be that number 10, not just be up front poaching goals.
“Kane and Son are a joy to watch, two magnificent players who know each other perfectly.
“They remind me of me and Keano (Robbie Keane), they are almost telepathic. They understand that football isn't a selfish game, that when you try to set up your team-mate and play for them, you end up playing better yourself and it helps the team.
“Right now, they are just having fun playing together, it's the perfect partnership.”
Gareth Bale is another to have been added to a star-studded attacking pot at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with the Welshman up and running during a second stint with Spurs.
Berbatov believes his former team-mate can thrive alongside Kane and Son, with the 31-year-old still having plenty left in the tank after enduring a difficult few years at Real Madrid.
“Gareth Bale will have been emotional making his second debut against the Hammers, and even though the result was not the perfect one, and he missed that chance, he will still be happy to be back,” added Berbatov.
“Of course, he will have been nervous, even without fans, but it will be easier going forward for him.
“He will have loads of time to score goals, make assists, and play lots of minutes. The most important thing for him is to stay injury free, and hopefully Spurs can help him with this.”
