John Terry leaves surprising comment on Harry Kane's Instagram post

It's very difficult to argue to with Harry Kane winning Player of the Month for February.

The Tottenham striker netted the winning penalty against Middlesbrough and ended the month with a hat-trick in the 4-0 thrashing of Stoke.

Those goals have seen him surpass the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Diego Costa, and Alexis Sanchez as the Premier League's top scorer, which is some feat when you consider he was out injured for almost eight weeks of the campaign.

Kane's been incredible. The 23-year-old has showed no signs of slowing up in March either, scoring another two in last Sunday's 3-2 win over Everton.

'Lukaku or Kane' was the big question ahead of that game, but the England international answered in typically emphatic fashion - even if the Belgian did find the back of the net courtesy of a Jan Vertonghen slip.

It's not just Spurs fans who are getting excited by the forward.

Euro 2016 may not have been his finest tournament, but it's got to be a promising sign for England that they have such a talent coming through. Just don't have him taking corners.

It says a lot about the hype surrounding Kane that even John Terry has gone out of his way to compliment him.

One of the best 

There's usually no love lost between Chelsea and Spurs, and it's not as if the White Hart Lane faithful have been too welcoming to old JT over the years.

Even so, the Blues centre-back showed a touch of class by leaving a great comment on Kane's Instagram post celebrating his award.

We seem to be seeing a different side to Terry at the moment.

Former Chelsea player Graeme Le Soux has told the Friends in Football podcast, via the Sun, of another lovely gesture the defender made to a young fan.

Classy gesture 

"I remember I was out in Hong Kong with the team a few years ago, and we were hosting a family to go and meet a few of the players," Le Saux recalled.

“The daughter of this family was probably about eight, and I said to her, 'if you get to meet one player as they go to get on the bus, who would you like to meet?'

“Anyway, John came out and I introduced them. And as he was just about to go, he paused, opened his washbag, and he took out his captain's armband from this pre-season friendly.

“He obviously realised he had it in his washbag, took it out, called her back, put it on her arm and said: 'You're Chelsea captain now'."

Perhaps the Chelsea skipper is mellowing in his final years as a Premier League player, or maybe he's just misunderstood.
