Like the rest of the world right now, Steven Gerrard wishes Harry Kane was playing for his football club and not Spurs…
The English striker bagged a mindboggling 13 goals in September for club and country, which is the kind of numbers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo notched in their peak.
He’s still only 24-years-old and has firmly established himself in the world-class bracket – based solely on the outrageous numbers he’s racked up over the past few seasons.
“He is the in-form player in world football, in terms of goals scored and how he is playing,” Gerrard told Sky Sports News.
“I love the player and I love the character. I watch his interviews a lot and I have also met him on a couple of occasions.
“I think he is a perfect role model and an ambassador for the game. I love the way he goes about his work.
“I’ve also spoken to people who know him better than myself and I’ve heard he is obsessed and relentless on the training ground. I am sure he is getting the rewards now for all that hard work.
“I am glad he is English, I wish he was a Red!
“I am really happy for him with the form he is in and I am really enjoying watching him at the moment.”
How Liverpool could do with a player of Kane’s talents on board right now…
Liverpool create plenty of chances, but haven’t got a forward with elite finishing capabilities, who can put our opponents to the sword.
The amount of chances we’ve squandered in our past two games, against Newcastle and Spartak Moscow, is crazy.
While Spurs seem to dismantle teams easily with Kane getting on the scoresheet at will.
Despite this rhetoric, they’re actually only two points ahead of us in the table, while the equally impressive Chelsea are just one in front.
After the international break, we simply have to bounce back.
