Rafael van der Vaart revealed that former Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes thought Harry Kane ‘couldn’t do a damn thing’.

Explaining Gomes’ opinion on Kane, Van der Vaart told Ziggosport: ‘A nice story, when he first came to train with us, he was eighteen years old, and I swear to you, Gomes, our goalkeeper at the time, said: he can’t do a damn thing.  

‘You see, he is now the best striker after Lewandowski.’

The Dutchman also weighed in on Kane’s future in North London amid suggestions that he may leave the club this summer.

Kane has been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City, following the announcement of Sergio Aguero’s departure, but van der Vaart believes that Old Trafford would be the best destination for him.

‘He (Keane) is right, although, of course, he is the man at Tottenham. It may sound crazy, but you would almost say go to Manchester United or something, stay in England.

‘Usually, it’s not such a success when an English player goes to Madrid.’
