Kane’s first Champions League hat-trick against Apoel Nicosia on Tuesday secured Spurs a 3-0 victory and underlined the 24-year-old’s status as one of the deadliest strikers in the world.
This year, Kane has 34 goals in 30 club appearances, including six hat-tricks. That is more trebles than Messi and Ronaldo combined, with the LaLiga pair owning two each.
The England forward is also the top scorer in this season’s Champions League, his earlier double against Borussia Dortmund giving him five goals overall, ahead of Ronaldo’s four and Messi’s two.
“In every big team you have a big goalscorer. In Tottenham it is Harry Kane,” Lloris said. “I think for him he has got a lot of things to prove in the Champions League. He shows his quality and skills at the moment.
“Five goals in two games is fantastic and hopefully he will carry on in the same way for him and the team. We are not surprised about Harry, we know his talent, his skills, his aptitude to score goals and important goals.
“He is our main player, like in top teams, in Real Madrid you have Ronaldo, in Barca you have Messi.”
