Harry Kane has revealed who he would rather have played alongside between Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard and Chelsea icon Frank Lampard.
The two midfielders have endlessly been pitted against each other in debates both during and after their playing careers, winning a host of club honours in their glittering heydays and breaking a host of records. They are also the last Englishmen to place on the podium for the Ballon d’Or, ranking just behind Ronaldinho in 2005.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Saturday Social show, Tottenham striker Kane was asked which of Gerrard and Lampard he would have preferred to have played alongside.
“That’s another tough question. They were both incredible players,” Kane said.
“I’m going to say Lampard. I feel like Lampard was incredible, I feel like his goals in the Premier League were truly remarkable for a midfielder.
“I guess both have their unique qualities, but yeah, I’d rather play alongside Lamps and try and get some goals together.”
We’re sure Kane’s decision to side with a Chelsea great in Lampard will go down well with Spurs fans.
It’s also notable that Kane picked Lampard given that he starred alongside Dele Alli at Tottenham for several years, with comparisons often made between the two attacking midfielders.
Ironically, Dele has failed to break into Lampard’s struggling Everton side since his move to Merseyside from north London at the end of the January transfer window.
