Is that so? Kane our Ronaldo or Messi - Lloris

Thierry Henry chooses between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Champions League manager compares Harry Kane to Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Lionel Messi

After going scoreless in August yet again, Harry Kane now has 13 goals in eight appearances for club and country in September.

Kane said being compared to Real Madrid star Ronaldo and Barcelona maestro Messi gave him plenty of motivation.

Kane hit a hat-trick as Tottenham thrashed APOEL Nicosia 3-0 last night in the Champions League.

The debate between Messi and Ronaldo has shown no signs of slowing down.

Kane also won back-to-back Golden Boot awards, despite missing a chunk of the season through injury, as well as becoming the fourth player in league history - after Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy - to notch 20 goals in three consecutive Premier League campaigns.

"Harry Kane is so young, for he is the one of the best today and one of the best in the world", the former Southampton manager said.

He is probably the closest player to the Denmark worldwide, named Spurs' supporters' player of the season a year ago, in the squad but Pochettino was reluctant to compare them, adding: "It's bad to compare two players".

'All the words I can use to describe Harry Kane, there are hard to find more, but he is one of the best in the world'.

"We can not put such pressure on Harry because he's still so young". He is a striker, a killer, but completely different. Harry is a striker, a killer. "But in different aspects, they are different".

"He is one of the options we have and we celebrate that, because to have the possibility to have him on the team provides us with more quality and more options to play in a different way". "Who better to assess Harry?"

They rode their luck at times against a spirited Apoel side, who were spurred on by a buoyant home crowd, but in Kane Spurs have arguably the deadliest striker in the world on current form.

"My wife is jealous - and his wife too", Pochettino said with a smile.

He is jostling with Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku, Alvaro Morata at Chelsea and Sergio Aguero at Manchester City as the Premier League's most in-form striker.
