Gabriel Agbonlahor says he’d trust Harry Kane to finish a big chance over Cristiano Ronaldo in an opinion that has got fans furiously talking online.
Agbonlahor and fellow talkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara engaged in a conversation about who they’d rather have up front between Kane and Ronaldo.
The former Aston Villa star talked up the England international’s ability in front of goal before heaping huge praise on him.
O’Hara asked Agbonlahor: “In a cup final, would you rather have Kane or Ronaldo?”
The ex-Premier League forward wasted little time in replying: “I’m having Kane!”
He added: “If you look at finishing, there’s no one better.”

A stunned O’Hara questioned the decision of Agbonlahor, who defended his opinion by recalling his duels with him during his playing days.
Ronaldo is a machine in front of goal and proved that by becoming the all-time leading goalscorer in men’s international football
He scored two goals for Portugal as they fought back to beat Ireland in a World Cup qualifier.
But Agbonlahor would prefer the 28-year-old up front, with people online making their feelings known on social media.
If Ronaldo played for Spurs they’d have won a trophy or three by now… https://t.co/xK2SDNeeCM

Kane is a great finisher don’t get me wrong but in a final it’s Ronaldo everyday. Pure waffle. https://t.co/d9LKs9MCoV

One sarcastically tweeted: “I don’t recall a single final in which Ronaldo has ever made the difference for his team. Kane on the other hand, goal machine on the biggest stage.”
A second wrote: “Harry Kane has been to 4 cup finals and scored 0 goals. What are you on about?”
A third fumed: “They obviously didn’t watch the 2019 CL final. 2021 league cup final. Oh and the Euro 2020 (2021) final. Finishing is one thing. TURNING UP IS ANOTHER!!!!”
Kane or Ronaldo? Who you got?
