'Kane Is More Clinical Than Rooney'

Tottenham’s sensational striker, Harry Kane has been compared to Wayne Rooney, being described as a more natural marksman.

Reports: Man Utd & Chelsea Chasing ‘Next Neymar’

West Ham manager, Sam Allardyce was commenting on the in-form Englishman, ahead of his team’s clash with Tottenham in a London derby on Sunday afternoon.

The Hammers travel to White Hart Lane in eighth place, while Spurs have enjoyed fine form, winning three of their past four games in the Premier League, occupying sixth place.

Allardyce believes that the Englishman’s contribution of 23 goals in all competitions this season have helped him gain a reputation as a standout performer in the Premier League, rating him above Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney.

“His rise to prominence has been spectacular and it shows you that, in this game, you never can tell,” Allardyce wrote in the London Evening Standard on Friday.

"The attention he is attracting can be a distraction but can be managed carefully and sensibly, by his family, the club and, particularly, his agent.

“Full marks to him, though, and it’s great for England. He looks as though he might be an even more clinical and natural finisher than Wayne Rooney.”

Allardyce went on to praise his new striker, Nene, who signed for West Ham on Wednesday, but said that he will be unavailable for selection on Sunday.

“It’s great to have a player like Nene, with his CV, at the club. We’re all looking forward to seeing him play,” he added.

“Nene isn’t ready physically yet. He’s just started training with us, it’ll be about 10 days maybe two weeks before he’s ready.”
