Zinedine Zidane praises 'complete player' Harry Kane

Zinedine Zidane praises 'complete player' Harry Kane

Kane has been in impressive form for club and country this term by scoring 15 goals in all competitions so far, leading to suggestions that Madrid are willing to spend big to land him next summer.

The England international's development into a world class striker was seemingly evidenced by his nomination for the Ballon d'Or, with Kane impressing throughout 2017.

That is how Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola cheekily described Spurs, with Mauricio Pochettino branding the comment "sad" and "disrespectful".

He added: "I know Pep very well and when he is excited after an unbelievable victory against Chelsea sometimes he struggles to keep his position and be a gentleman". "He has great speed and is good finding emptying spaces. He is a complete player and he is always working to get to the goal", Zidane said.

"Kane is playing well, but Tottenham isn't just Kane and I'm sure they'll prepare their game well".

Kane has the respect of Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Navas had seemed set to miss Tuesday's game in Madrid after sitting out Real's weekend LaLiga win at Getafe with a muscle injury picked up on Costa Rica duty.

"I think Danny Rose will be on the bench and it is important", Pochettino said. When Harry doesn't score we have a strong enough team to score, if it's me, Dele [Alli], Sonny [Son Heung-Min], Tripps [Kieran Trippier] or [Moussa] Sissoko. But it's not about one forward or one keeper.

Manchester United: de Gea; Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young; Matic, Herrera; Mata, Mkhitaryan, Rashford; Lukaku . De Gea said: "I tried to react quickly and it hits my foot".

The 21-year-old's composure when in possession of the football would undoubtedly bring a certain level of class to the Wolves midfield, and he would surely help improve upon the fluidity of their build-up play.

"They are a very hard team to beat but with Juventus we did so in the "semis" a few years ago".

"Everyone has their own opinion", he said.

Spurs flew to Madrid for Tuesday's (17 October) showdown at the Santiago Bernabeu with Rose among the travelling party, despite only returning to training after a lengthy injury layoff last week.

"I always dreamt about playing in the Spanish league".

"I think it's a team performance".

"In his chats, he insists we all have to want it, there are no excuses for being exhausted and stuff".
