Juventus defender Chiellini: Gold dust Kane among best in world

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is up for his personal showdown with Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The pair will cross swords in the Champions League this week.

“Kane is gold dust, Tottenham are lucky to have him. He is one of the greatest centre forwards in the world," Chiellini told reporters.

"Stopping one-on-one against Kane, just me alone, is pretty impossible. I'm not so presumptuous or arrogant to think I can and it's not a goal I have. I hope the whole of Juventus can stop Tottenham, that is what matters.

"One-to-one clashes are important but the whole team will have to do its best to limit, not only Harry Kane, but they have this 'fab four' (Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Heung-min Son) in the attacking area.

"Tottenham are not just Harry Kane but a whole team."
