Former Manchester City defender Danny Mills believes Tottenham Hotspur hitman Harry Kane not as good as Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney. Kane is considered one of the best strikers in the world at the moment, but he endured a difficult start to the 2021-22 season.
Kane has scored an incredible 228 goals in just 352 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham since making his club debut in the 2011-12 season. He also won the Golden Boot Award of the Premier League three times and was named PFA Young Player of the Year for the 2014-15 season.
Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney, on the other hand, has scored 253 goals and provided 146 assists in 559 appearances in the Premier League for the Red Devils in all competitions. It is important to note that Rooney did not play many of those 559 matches as a target for United. He was even deployed in the central midfield of the club.
Danny Mills, in fact, believes Wayne Rooney was a more complete player.
“Kane is amazing, but Wayne Rooney is a far better player. He had a lot more. And it was harder to score when he played,” Mills said. TalkSPORT.
Danny Mills argued that Wayne Rooney’s working speed, desire, goal-scoring ability, creativity, and defensive abilities made him a much tougher opponent. Rooney is considered one of the most valuable strikers the Premier League has ever seen.
