Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane is one of the most prolific goal scorers in the world but even the English star acknowledges that Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski is an absolute wonder.

“I think Lewandowski is a fantastic player. Incredible finisher, great movement” said Kane. “His all round game is fantastic and you’re seeing that year on year – the goals he scores and the contributions he makes to the team. A lot of his goals have been in the last five years and I feel especially nowadays, there is no reason you can’t be hitting your prime in your early 30s.”

More, Kane credits players like Lewandowski, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi for showing him how to maintain a high level of performance for the long run.

“You look at Lewandowski, Ronaldo, Messi, and you see a lot of players coming into even better form when they’re hitting their 30s,” said Kane. “So that’s what I want to be doing. I’m 27, still feel like I’ve got plenty more years to go to learn and improve. When I look at players like that it only gives me more motivation to do it as well. And I certainly feel like I’m in a place where I can do that, scoring and playing for hopefully many more years to come.”
