Harry Kane ‘won’t be happy’ Erling Haaland is in the limelight and the Tottenham star will be determined to win the World Cup and the Premier League Golden Boot, says Teddy Sheringham


Harry Kane will use fellow Premier League centre-forward Erling Haaland as motivation this season, says Teddy Sheringham.

The Tottenham star has enjoyed a strong start to the campaign, but Manchester City’s new centre-forward is in the spotlight having already broken several Premier League goalscoring records.

Kane currently has nine goals in 10 league appearances this season, while his Man City counterpart has 15.

The Spurs striker’s tally is nine of his tally of just one after the same number of games last campaign already – but the 22-year-old has stolen his thunder.

And Kane’s goalscoring push could be, in part, down to his willingness to follow Haaland, believes ex-Spurs, Man United and England striker Sheringham.

“He won’t be happy that Haaland is in the limelight and everyone says he’s the best centre-forward in the country,” Sheringham told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“Harry Kane will first want to score goals for Tottenham, then he will go to the World Cup and he will want to win the Golden Boot, then he will come back and will want to win the Golden Boot in the Premier League.

“He’s a goalscorer and that’s what he does. He won’t want to rest, he’ll want to score goals, as long as it can continue, he will continue, that’s what he does.

This winter’s World Cup is fast approaching, with Kane preparing to lead England to a third major tournament in just over a month.

The Spurs striker won’t have to worry about competing against Haaland for the World Cup Golden Boot, however, given that the star’s home country of Norway failed to make it. qualify for Qatar,

However, he may still want to prove a point in the competition and grab the limelight of goalscoring in Haaland’s absence.

Speaking ahead of Tottenham’s game against Manchester United, Spurs boss Antonio Conte echoed Sheringham’s view of the England captain wanting to give his all for Spurs, regardless of the World Cup.

“I can tell you that Harry wants to play every game,” he said, “A player who wants to play every game is not afraid of injury or missing the World Cup.”
