Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has hailed striker Harry Kane as his club's answer to Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

Kane, Spurs' top scorer this season with 19 goals, was named on the bench for his side's home game against Watford on Saturday after missing three games with an ankle injury.

"In Barcelona, Messi was injured for a month, but Barcelona were still winning," Pochettino said in comments published by British newspapers on Saturday.
