Shearer backs Kane to break his Prem goals record

Date published: Thursday 2nd March 2017 2:15

Alan Shearer believes Harry Kane is capable of breaking his long-standing Premier League goals record if he stays at Tottenham.

Kane scored his 100th career goal at club level with his first of three strikes against Stoke on Sunday.

The 23-year-old has 66 goals in 107 Premier League games, and is on course to secure a second straight Golden Boot this season.

Shearer, whose haul of 260 Premier League goals dwarfs the competition – Wayne Rooney is second, with 195 goals – believes Kane is capable of eventually toppling his record.

“He is a player I really like and I would want him in my team for sure. I do see a little of myself in him and a bit of Teddy Sheringham, too. His goal-ratio is different class,” wrote in his column for Coral.

“He has now scored more than 20 goals in each of the last three seasons which suggests he is here to stay at the top level. He is very good at most things. If there is one thing he can improve on it is his hold up play, but that is me being picky.

“If he stays at Spurs for the next 10 years and remains fit, he is one of the players who could break my Premier League goalscoring record.

“It will be broken one day I am very sure of that. I’ve met Harry and he is a good guy so I would be very happy for him if he did go on to break it. But I hope it takes a while as I’d like to enjoy it for a few more years yet!”
