Too soon to compare Harry Kane with Ronaldo, says Mauricio Pochettino

Apoel were beaten 3-0 by Real Madrid in opening game with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring twice

Kane scored 29 times in 30 games in the Premier League last season to finish as the division's top goal-scorer for the second successive campaign.

"My wife is so jealous", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said with a smile, "and his wife, too".

"He has unbelievable skills in front of goal".

'Harry is one of the best and will get better because he's so young.

Two of those strikes came in the club's 3-1 win at home to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, and Jenas believes that Kane has to demonstrate the same form in Europe's premier club competition to be considered a world class striker.

Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world but comparisons with Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are premature. I never said he is better than Cristiano and Lionel Messi, who are at a different level.

Kane is unlikely ever to get close to either Ronaldo or Messi's glittering career records but excitement is growing around his potential for both Spurs and England, with a World Cup in Russian Federation approaching next summer.

Arsene Wenger insists: Alexis Sanchez is happy at Arsenal
Austin Okocha has urged Alex Iwobi to make use of the opportunity presented to him by Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger . Asked if his disciplinary problems are more to do with the position he plays, he added: "Yes, that'll be it".

"The two in the second half, Moussa (Sissoko)'s cut back a great ball and in those kind of positions it's all about the touch and the touch was kind of flawless and that set me up and I stroked it home".

"I will decide what happens if [he is suspended]", said Pochettino.

"I've not seen it but I'm going to text Wayne to ask him how he built it". I can not joke about that because both are fantastic.

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

"I feel stronger holding off defenders maybe better than I was before".

"But of course I know we will arrive in our best condition and ready to compete. We need to try to give the best solution to try to keep that level and then to be regular and the possibility to play more".
