Former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has stated that Harry Kane should hope to be where Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in ten years time.

The retired England international’s two old employers meet on Sunday in the Premier League at Old Trafford, with each team boasting a lethal centre forward.

Ibrahimovic has scored 13 goals since moving to United from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer in the summer and will surely lead the line for Jose Mourinho’s men against Spurs.

Kane meanwhile has been a revelation in recent seasons after graduating from the Tottenham youth academy and topped the Premier League scoring charts last season.

Sheringham has stated that the Spurs striker should look up Ibrahimovic and look to emulate the success he has had in his career.

“Zlatan is the finished article, where Harry would like to be in ten years’ time,” he told The Sun.

“Zlatan has won major honours all around the world, he knows his game inside out, he knows what he can and he can’t do.

“You have seen in his games he is not waning at all. He might not go on for ever but at this moment he is still at the top of his game.”

Sheringham also backed Kane’s decision to pen a new long-term deal with Mauricio Pochettino’s men and admitted that the star striker could have moved to some of world football’s top teams instead.

“It is a good precedent — for Harry to commit his future to Tottenham when I reckon all of the top clubs in the world would have been interested in signing him,” he continued.

“He could have gone anywhere for any amount of money but he is obviously loving playing for Tottenham.

“He is playing for England and has ambitions at club level as well and wants to play in the top matches and top finals. He obviously thinks Spurs are going in the right direction.”
