Rangers star reckons £175.5m-rated pair at former club are world's best

Rangers hero Jermain Defoe has described the strike partnership at former club Tottenham as the best in world football.

The veteran Gers striker is 38-years-young and still firing at Ibrox, but the club’s fans will remember Jermain’s time at White Hart Lane where he spent some eleven seasons over three spells.

Defoe – who netted 143 times for Spurs – believes that the current striker duo of England captain Harry Kane and South Korean star Son Heung-Min is the strongest in the global game.

Defoe described the job Mourinho has done with the two players as “unbelievable” and praised the duo for their consistency.

“With Kane and Son, what Mourinho has done has been incredible,’ Defoe tole the Mennie Talks Podcast.

“Those two are the best partnership in world football at the minute.

“The hardest thing that you can do at the top level is to be consistent, so for those two to show that consistency, for me is unbelievable.

“Son is dynamic, so he runs in behind. He gets the ball and he is direct, he beats people.”

Defoe’s comments come with Tottenham flying in the English Premier League and currently sitting top of the pile after 10 games, pipping Liverpool on goal difference.

Mourinho has built a stubborn team which is difficult to beat and which rarely ships goals but the form of Kane and Son has been the difference-maker.

So far this season Harry Kane has offered up an incredible return of 13 goals and 11 assists in only 16 games, whilst Son is not far behind offering up 11 goals and five assists in 15 games.

Between them, the duo have scored 16 of Tottenham’s 21 Premier League goals this season, and they have a combined value of £175.5 on Transfermarkt [Kane £108m, Son £67.50m].

But which of the two was recently compared to a leading Rangers star by one of the Ibrox club’s biggest legends?
