EPL: David Ginola names England star who’s now like Diego Maradona
England national team captain, Harry Kane has been compared to Argentina great, Diego Maradona.
This was after the 29-year-old turned in another impressive performance for Tottenham against Newcastle United on Sunday.
Spurs whitewashed Newcastle United 5-1 on Sunday and David Ginola could not hold back comparing the England striker to Maradona of blessed memories.
Although the England captain did not find the back of the net, he did record his sixth assist of the season.
Kane displayed his immense ability to drop deep and pick out passes, which Ginola has likened to the skills of Maradona.
The striker’s display earned him some good words from Ginola, a former Tottenham and Newcastle winger.
“The new playmaker at Spurs is Harry Kane,” Ginola said on Sky Sports.
“I told you – Harry Kane, the playmaker, the number 10, he’s like Maradona now.
“He’s playing in the middle of the park, long balls, short balls, scoring, assisting, wow. This is a new Harry Kane,” he stated.
