Patrick Vieira discusses comparisons between Kane & Henry

Ahead of Crystal Palace’s meeting with Tottenham on Saturday, manager Patrick Vieira has confessed to being a huge fan of striker Harry Kane, but was adamant that comparisons to former Arsenal team-mate Thierry Henry were wide of the mark.

Vieira played alongside Henry at Arsenal between 1997 and 2005, helping to turn the Gunners into one of the best teams in Europe. By the time Henry left the club in 2007, he was widely seen as arguably the greatest player the Premier League has ever seen.

Kane has already shattered Henry’s goal record in the English top flight, but Vieira refused to put the Spurs man in the same bracket as the Frenchman, whom he insisted was on a ‘different level’ to anyone the league has ever seen.

“Kane can finish inside the box, outside the box, he can create chances. He is a modern number nine and can change position,” Vieira said (via talkSPORT). “But Thierry Henry, I am sorry he is in a different level. I love Kane, he is a fantastic player but Thierry is still Thierry.”
