Former Chelsea assistant manager Steve Holland has spoken highly of England striker Harry Kane, having worked with him in the Three Lions squad.

Holland who is now assistant manager to Gareth Southgate in the England national team believes Kane is a better finisher than the stars he worked with at Chelsea.

Having been promoted to assistant manager with the Blues in 2011 to partner Andreas Villas-Boas, Holland worked with Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Daniel Sturridge, Frank Lampard and Diego Costa.

However, Holland believes Kane is the best finisher he has worked with.

“He’s a really exceptional finisher. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some amazing ones, Drogba and Lampard across my time at Chelsea, but none better than Harry,” said England’s no.2

“In terms of actually taking a chance in a game, if you give him a chance, his technical execution is as good as anything I’ve certainly ever seen.

“He’s a player who has gained confidence and belief since then and has adapted his game as he’s matured.”
