Shearer is the Premier League’s all time leading goalscorer with an astonishing 260 goals, 60 more than his closest rival Wayne Rooney.
Kane himself has an already impressive 82 top flight strikes to his name at 24-years-old, however Ginola believes the Spurs hitman still has a long way to go to be considered on the same level as the Magpies legend.
“Harry has a long way to go to reach the level of Alan Shearer. He played for Blackburn and Newcastle United and was such a great striker. There is no doubt he’s one of the best strikers of English football ever.” Ginola said speaking to Alan Brazil on TalkSPORT.
“When you looked at Alan Shearer on the training ground you could see his ability to score goals was just amazing but during the game – he was a perfect competitor, a fighter on the football pitch.”
Shearer himself has touted Kane to come close to beating his goal-scoring record following the impressive start to his career, and Ginola believes if Kane is indeed to do so, he needs to follow the example of the former Newcastle man.
“So for Harry Kane, it is just an example to follow as a striker but there is still a long way to go and he’s still young man but he has plenty to achieve.”
