Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has described Harry Kane as nothing short of "absolutely amazing" after the Tottenham striker finished 2017 as Europe’s top scorer.
The England international bagged a sensational 56 goals in all competitions for club and country over the past 12 months, breaking the duopoly previously held by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In fact, Kane’s tally came in 52 games in 2017, more than Messi (54 goals in 64 games), (53 in 60), Edinson Cavani (53 in 62) and Robert Lewandowski (53 in 55), and Wenger paid tribute to the 24-year-old's achievements.
"He has done it and would I have predicted it? I would modestly say no," Wenger said.
"What he has done is beat people like Messi and Ronaldo, who are unbeatable in my head, so what he has done is absolutely fantastic."
