Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has endorsed the comparisons between Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Fiorentina icon Gabriel Batistuta.
“There are many similarities between Kane and Batistuta,” Buffon said. I think the comparison is very appropriate in terms of physical strength, athleticism and finishing. Kane has been in outstanding form. There is no doubt at the moment he is among the top two or three best strikers in the world.”
Kane scored against the Bianconeri in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in Turin and will again feature when the teams reconvene at Wembley on Wednesday.
