Darren Bent Picks Cristiano Ronaldo Top Of His Best Six Finishers List
Darren Bent has picked quite a bizarre list of his top six best finishers he's ever seen and missed out the Premier League's all time top scorer, and Sandra Redknapp.
In his playing days Bent had a pretty decent strike record, especially at Charlton Athletic, Spurs and Sunderland but he's most famous for a goal that game off a beach ball against Liverpool.
Talking around the 10th anniversary of that goal Bent named his six best finishers of all time, bizarrely picking Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Jermain Defoe, Ian Wright, Harry Kane, Ronaldo and Cristiano Ronaldo.
A controversial one today...@DarrenBent chose his top 6 finishers of all time :soccer:- talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) October 16, 2019

Obviously there's some very good names amongst Bent's top six but he's missed out some incredible finishers, chief amongst them the Premier League's all time top scorer Alan Shearer.
Huntelaar might be the biggest surprise on the former Sunderland player's list but the Dutchman does still have a very good record across his career.
In 623 games the 36-year-old has scored 354 goals and even in his mid 30s things are going well for the former Real Madrid striker.
Back at Ajax this season, Huntelaar has scored five goals in seven games in the Eredivisie.
Bent is most famous for two moments of hilarity during his career. 10 years ago today he scored the infamous goal against Liverpool.
The striker took a shot from inside the area and the ball hit a beach ball that had come from the stands from a fan, the collision took the match ball in the wrong direction and completely fooled Pepe Reina.
The goal shouldn't have stood and the Black Cats went on to claim a 1-0 win in the strangest of circumstances.
Of course more embarrassing for Bent is the other moment he became famous for, when playing for Harry Redknapp's Spurs.
Against Aston Villa in 2009 the striker missed a header with the whole net gaping for him and his manager claimed that wife Sandra would have scored it.
It's quite the Premier League legacy for the striker.
