Arsenal legend congratulates Tottenham Hotspur star Kane for latest achievement

The rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is a fierce one, but on some occasions, the feud is put on the back-burner.

It seems that Arsenal legend Ian Wright decided to do just that when he praised Spurs striker Harry Kane for receiving a prestigious nomination.

The 24-year-old has been named within a 30-man shortlist for the Ballon d’Or, which has gone back and forth between Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Real Madrid hero Cristiano Ronaldo over the years.

The latter is favourite to nab his fifth award, but it is a special achievement for Kane, who is the only Englishman on the list.

Wright has a strong loyalty to Arsenal given that he spent seven years of his career playing for the North London outfit.

However, the 53-year-old decided to give a special mention to Kane after the striker was announced as one of the nominees.

Well done @harrykane your name among this lot means the hard work is paying off 👍👏👏👏
