Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane is a better player than Zlatan Ibrahimovic was, according to Jamie O’Hara.
The 29-year-old recently made history by becoming the Three Lions’ all-time record scorer thanks to his goal against Italy.
Kane has consistently proven that he is one of football’s most talented forwards, and O’Hara believes he’s still got a few years left of quality in him.
Speaking to Manchester City fan David on NaijaOnPoint, the former Spurs midfielder said: “He’s going to get 80 or 90 goals I think for England because he can play for another four or five seasons.”
David isn’t convinced Kane has long left at the top, to which O’Hara responded: “Are you winding me up? He could play for England for the next five seasons.”
He made a comparison to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who recently returned to the Swedish national team at the age of 41.
“Ibrahimovic is playing and he’s 41,” said O’Hara. “Kane can play until he’s at least 35/36 for England.”
O’Hara was then questioned for putting the two players in the same bracket, to which he said: “Kane and Ibrahimovic are on the same level. I’d go as far to say Kane for me is a better player than Ibrahimovic.”
Ibrahimovic is a key example of how top players can continue to perform despite their age, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
However, the striker has recently been sidelined due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury, therefore making limited appearances over the past few months.
Kane on the other hand has been in fine form once again for Spurs, and became their all-time top scorer earlier in the season.
His record-breaking goal against Italy was followed by another strike in England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine..
