Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has described Harry Kane as a “complete player”
Harry Kane, 24, is set to face Real Madrid in the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday having scored five goals in two games so far in Group H, and his prolific form over recent seasons has prompted comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo.
Zidane refused to discuss the prospect of his club pursuing Kane but said he has huge respect for the Tottenham forward.
“I don’t know what will happen in the future, but in the present, he [Kane] is a very important player and key player for Tottenham,” Zidane said.
“He is very good at everything, but what he does well is that he always goes towards the goal and his speed is very good.
“He is a complete player. He didn’t seem to be [when he was younger], but in the end, that is what he is. But Tottenham is not just Kane — it is a very good team and we are going to prepare very well.
“We are playing against a very good team and that is good for us, it encourages us to play a good match.
“Tottenham has always been a great club, but they are constantly improving and they have a great coach. It will be a good game between two strong teams. It will be the group final.”
