Haaland vs Kane: They’re not on same planet – Burley chooses better striker




Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley has chosen Bayern Munich’s Harry Kane as a better striker over Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.

Burley believes Haaland is not on the same planet as Kane in terms of all-round playing style.

Haaland has been one of the most prolific strikers in recent years, especially since his move from Borussia Dortmund to Man City in the summer of 2022.

The Norway international has broken the Premier League record, scoring 36 goals in a season.

Haaland also contributed 52 goals and nine assists in 53 games across competitions to help Pep Guardiola’s side win the treble.

Speaking about Haaland and Kane, Burley said (via Goal):

“I don’t think it is any surprise that some of Haaland’s all-round game has room for improvement. He is about physicality and goals. When it comes to all-around play – I am not suggesting he is a worse goalscorer – he is not on the same planet as a Harry Kane.

“In terms of his link-up play, Kane can drop off and play passes like a No.10. He can play 50-60-70-yard ping passes, round the corner, you name it.”
