Patrick Bamford has hailed Harry Kane as the best striker in the world and reveals that he is learning from his new England teammate.
The Leeds United striker has just earned a call-up to the England national team and that has afforded him the opportunity to share the training pitch with Tottenham striker, Kane.
The England captain helped his country to reach the final of Euro 2020 off the back of a stunning Premier League season on an individual level, as he was the top scorer and playmaker in the competition.
Bamford missed out on the squad for the tournament, but he is one of England’s best strikers and has been in decent form for Leeds United in the Premier League.
He was speaking about his fellow striker recently and says he is learning from the Spurs man, although he insists that both of them are different strikers and he doesn’t model his game after him.
“I’ve not really modelled my game on Harry,” Bamford said via TalkSport.
“For me, he’s the best striker in the world as an out-and-out no.9.
“But there are certain aspects where I look up to him and see where I can improve. Even in training I saw how crisp his contacts with the ball is when he’s finishing.
“I don’t know if our game is as similar as people make out because I run in behind a lot more and there are different aspects of it but there are definitely things I can learn from him.”
