Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier has admitted that he would select Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane ahead of Real Madrid hero Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Southampton legend based his decision on current form, as Kane seems to be unstoppable in front of goal.
In fact, the 24-year-old has scored 37 goals in all competitions this season, while Ronaldo is 12 behind with 25 to his name.
The Portugal captain is widely regarded as one of the world’s best, and it is difficult to argue given that he has won five league titles and three Champions League crowns.
Kane is yet to win any silverware with Tottenham, but over the last few years he has been the driving force in the club’s Premier League campaigns.
The North London outfit finished third and then second in the past two seasons, and even though they are likely to be fighting for a top-four finish this season, Le Tissier thinks that on current form, Kane is better than Ronaldo.
While speaking to Sky Sports News, the retired footballer said:
“Right now, on this season’s form, I would take Harry Kane. Ronaldo has done it over a longer period of time and there is many a season you would pick Cristiano over him. But this season, Harry has stepped it up another level. He has been brilliant for the last three or four years but this season he has taken it up a notch.”
