Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane was one of the few players who impressed during spells of the match against Bayern Munich on Tuesday.
The England captain tucked away his penalty to give Spurs a fighting chance at 4-2 and enjoyed some impressive general play.
His cross-field pass to Serge Aurier stands out as one moment of classic Kane play, as well as taking the ball around Neuer before seeing his shot cleared by the last defender.
Kane has been in good form so far this season, scoring seven goals in nine games for Spurs and six goals so far in 2019 for his country (Wikipedia).
That takes Kane’s Tottenham total up to 171 goals in 262 games since making his debut in the 2011/12 season.
Ex-Spurs striker, Dimitar Berbatov, who was at the game on Tuesday, has now claimed that he was impressed with Kane’s standard of play and insists that he could walk into any team in the world.
Berbatov also gave an insight into what the mood in the Spurs dressing room would have been like after the 7-2 defeat.
He said (Betfair – as quoted by Goal): “I was watching Harry Kane against Bayern Munich and even though it was a bad result, throughout the game his movement, control of the ball, passing, play with his teammates and finishing was excellent.
“For me, he is the complete striker, I know that he can walk into any team and play. He is big enough and knows what he needs to do to win trophies in his career and he’s probably asking questions himself, it’s up to him.
“I would love to see him win something with Spurs because he is Spurs. In the case of Kane and every other Spurs player, I think that every fan wants to see them win something in the end because they have good players and the manager is so good, but if that isn’t happening you start asking questions and you will probably disappoint many people if you decide to leave but you have to follow your own path because time flies.
“There will always be lots of rumours about him because he is a top player and I would like to see Kane continue here in England, the same goes for [Mauricio] Pochettino but I know when Real Madrid come calling, you are going to ask yourself a million questions.”
On the Bayern defeat, Berba added: “I woke up this morning and felt good because I’m not a part of the team any more but if I was a Spurs player or was involved in the team in any way it would be difficult.
“Yes, I am disappointed, nobody expected that result. It was a humiliation, I am sure that there would have been an awkward silence or maybe a few raised voices in the dressing room after the game.
“Everyone connected with the club is disappointed but sometimes when the flow is going for the opposition, especially Bayern Munich with Robert Lewandowski at his best, it is difficult to stop.”
