Kane described the former Chelsea and England captain as one of his toughest opponents
Kane and Terry met at opposite ends of their careers and have both captained England
“There are a few that have been the toughest I’ve faced in my career,” Kane said in a video on his Instagram story.
“Early on meeting John Terry, [he was] just a really smart defender, knew where to put his body, knew how to stop my runs, so it was a great learning curve.
Kane crossed paths with Terry – who played almost 500 Premier League games for Chelsea – early in his career before the now 41-year-old retired in 2018.
Kane also referred to Giorgio Chiellini as one of the toughest defenders he has faced
Chiellini was part of the Italy team that beat England on penalties in the Euro 2020 final
However, he also mentioned Chiellini, who famously joked about Tottenham’s poor history before helping cost England a Euro 2020 victory, and also credited the defender’s intelligence.
“And then Chiellini,” added Kane. – I obviously played against him against Italy and against Juventus.
“Again, very smart, strong and physical.”
Kane was ready with several questions, including what it’s like to play with Heung-Min Son
Kane answered several other questions in the session, including what it’s like playing with Spurs team-mate Heung-Min Son, who Kane branded a “fantastic player and a fantastic person”.
However, he labeled England top scorer Wayne Rooney as the best player to play with, before saying he was “very excited” for this winter’s World Cup.
The forward ended the Q&A by thanking the fans for their questions, before looking forward to Tottenham’s game against Wolves on Saturday.
