Harry Redknapp has admitted that he didn’t expect Harry Kane famous rise but added that he is the best striker in the world.

Kane who scored six goals at the World Cup in Russia is battling it out with Croatia at the moment as his national side is already playing Croatia 1-0.

Redknapp who worked with Kane at Tottenham also admitted that he has been surprised by the rise of the 24-year-old.

“I didn’t think he’d be the best centre-forward in the world, which he is now,” explained Redknapp via Sky Sports.

“The best leader of the line in the world. I don’t see anyone, an out-and-out striker, that’s better than him.

“I always thought he’d be a good player, I always thought he’d be a Premier League player. He had a great attitude. But to go on and do what he’s done… I don’t think when I left, he didn’t get in the team.

“He’s just been amazing, his confidence has grown. He’s got great belief in himself, and he’s a great guy. What he’s achieved has been amazing. He trains right, he works hard.

“He’s a model professional. You’re never going to read anything about him that’s going to be bad news. He gets on with his life, lives with his family, gets on with his golf. He’s not going to be out and about at night. He’s a proper good guy.”
