Harry Kane leaves out Tottenham superstar while building his ‘perfect striker’

Harry Kane made no mention of Tottenham Hotspur superstar Son Heung-min whilst building his ‘perfect striker’ based on a number of attributes.

After 19 years with the North London team, Kane left in the summer to sign a rumored £100 million contract with Bayern Munich. He spent eight of these seasons playing with Son Heung-min, the current club captain, and the two had an incredible friendship.

Because of their amazing on-field synergy, the two players have combined to set a Premier League record with 47 goal combinations for Spurs in all these seasons (BBC). Son has 24 goals out of them 47, while Kane has 23.

The two were at their most productive between 2020 and 2022, combining for 21 goals as Spurs players. They are undoubtedly among the greatest striking combinations the league has ever seen.

The responsibility for leading the club with his performances shifted to the South Korean when Kane left. Son has made 13 appearances this season in all competitions while wearing the armband, scoring eight goals and dishing out one assist (Transfermarkt).

At Bayern Munich, on the other hand, Kane has continued to thrive, tallying an incredible 21 goals and seven assists from 16 games in all competitions this season (Transfermarkt). Son’s performances have also prevented Spurs from feeling the Englishman’s absence.

No space for Son in Harry Kane’s ‘perfect striker’

After spending all these seasons together and holding such enviable records, Harry Kane would have been expected to name Son in at least one of the attributes as he aimed to build the ‘perfect striker’.

Here is who Kane chose to build his perfect striker, as posted by ESPN UK on X (formerly known as Twitter):

Movement –  Edinson Cavani

Speed – Cristiano Ronaldo

Heading – Peter Crouch

Finishing – Harry Kane (he chose himself)

Strength – Didier Drogba

Dribbling – Kylian Mbappe

Link up play – Wayne Rooney

Work Rate – Jude Bellingham

It’s simple to overinterpret stuff like this. Kane may have responded by arguing that Son wasn’t a striker while he was a member of the team. He was therefore unable to have thought of him as a possibility for any of these queries.

Son may have ideally made one or two of these categories. When it came to labor rate and pace, the South Korean may have been a viable choice. On the field, Kane and Son had a wonderful chemistry, so it’s possible that this was just a genuine oversight. It is advisable to interpret this with caution.
