Premier League legend Steven Gerrard has lavished huge praise on Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.
The current Aston Villa manager never got the chance to play with Kane. Gerrard retired from international football in 2016 when the striker came into the England national team set-up.
Gerrard spoke about how he wishes he could have played with the centre-forward, telling reporters (TalkSPORT):
“I wish I had the opportunity to play with him, you always want to play with top players.”
The legendary midfielder won the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup during his playing days with Liverpool. He believes Kane would have helped him better his own game despite many regarding him as one of the best Premier League midfielders in history.
“The way he plays would have helped my game to the next level and I’ve got enough confidence and belief in the way I played I might have been able to help him. I played with world class players with England and unfortunately I never got the chance to play with him.”
Kane will lead England into the 2022 World Cup at the end of the year. Gerrard believes that the Spurs striker is the perfect captain for the country.
“He’s the perfect captain for England right now, a world class player and with the way he carries himself on and off the pitch.”
