It’s time to face reality, we need to discuss the main reasons Harry Kane might never become the best striker in the world. 

The news about striker Harry Kane being out of the game for three months was devastating.

He knows he may never become the best number ‘9’ in the world.

We cut to a few years back with Mauricio Pochettino publicly comparing the Englishman to Ronaldo Nazario.

Yes! Harry has that level of skill and he proved it during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

But sadly, injuries have played an important part in his most recent years as a professional.

Kane wasn’t able to become that important player during Tottenham Hotspur’s most prolific season.

There were other players who stepped up instead of him during the difficult times.

We all know that this striker has everything to become one of the best in the world, but this truly marred his chances.

Throughout all this time, both Luis Suarez and Robert Lewandowski have been above him as the best strikers in the world.

Even Karim Benzema is better than him right now.

He might be able to bounce back from this latest set back, but he will have to put in some hard work in order to accomplish this.

Kane has a unique opportunity to take the baton from the other players we mentioned, but he knows he needs to make some changes.

Tottenham isn’t ideal for Harry Kane. 

One would’ve thought that Jose Mourinho’s arrival would help Harry Kane become the best striker in the world.

But the Portuguese manager is proving that his best years as a coach are long gone.

Mourinho is just an illusion that most of the Tottenham Hotspur players believed, Harry Kane must move away from that.

The English striker needs to understand that he will require to leave the Spurs if he truly wants to become the best.

The North London squad simply doesn’t have the resources to win the titles that the English captain requires in order to become the best.

We know he has the talent, but he still lacks the proper teammates to do so.

Also, he really needs the Three Lions to win some silverware with him as a star in order to be considered.

All of these hypothetical scenarios are highly unlikely, but they are not impossible.

We are only saying he won’t become the best striker in the world because we are looking at the odds.

Today’s news about his injury also made us realize that Kane won’t struggle to become one of the best English players in history.

There is another great compatriot of his that suffered a nasty injury a while ago, and he still managed to bounce back. 

Harry Kane’s similarities with Wayne Rooney. 

At this point, Kane shouldn’t think about becoming the best striker in the world.

But there are some other objectives he can aspire to reach, most of them include Wayne Rooney.

The Derby County player is arguably considered the best English striker in football history.

This is the man who surpassed Sir Bobby Charlton as the all-time top-scorer for England and Manchester United.

Harry Kane really has a chance to break Wayne’s record with England, and he can also surpass him in the Premier League.

The injury Kane just suffered reminds us of a time in which Rooney’s name was written next to Messi and Ronaldo.

During the 2011-12 season, the Manchester United player was scoring as many goals as the other two stars.

But a knee injury that kept him out of the game for two months was the reason he didn’t continue with his streak.

That was the time for him to take over the world and compete against the very best, but that injury prevented him from doing so.

Harry Kane is currently going through a similar situation, for he is at the top of his game right now.

We hope that he has a speedy recovery and he continues to score many goals after he returns. But he needs to set his own bar a little lower.
