Cottee explains why Kane could miss out on the Golden Boot

Cottee explains why Kane could miss out on the Golden Boot

After all, this was the same player that had failed to make an impact during his time with Chelsea.

Salah is sensational form - netting 21 Premier League goals this season - has seen fellow African Player of the Year winners Didier Drogba, Samuel Eto'o and El Hadji Diouf compare him to the world's best.

Kane now tops the goal scoring charts with 23 goals to his name, although Salah is only one behind the England forward and, after his four-goal haul in Manchester City's 5-1 thumping of Leicester, Aguero is two behind.

Despite the fact that Spurs failed to win the League title during the past two seasons, Kane has gone on to finish as the top-flights top scorer during the past two campaigns. The next closest player is Aguero's teammate Raheem Sterling, who has a career-best 15 strikes.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, the Frenchman revealed that he would like Liverpool's star man to walk away with the prize this season. Just because it is a good story.


Salah bagged his 22nd goal in 26 Premier League appearances against Southampton on Sunday. It is a great story.

Salah was one of Serie A's most creative players during three seasons in the Italian top flight with Fiorentina and then Roma.

"People will tell me that it is not his first season, because he played at Chelsea before, but let's give him that, this is his first season playing week in, week out", Henry continued.

With City's aggressive style of play, Cottee believes the blueprint is in place for Aguero to go on and claim the coveted accolade, providing he stays fit.

Sergio Aguero may edge both Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah in the scoring stakes this season, according to Tony Cottee.
