Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki will have been sick of the sight of Tottenham Hotspur after conceding four goals in two games against their Premier League opponents.
After Harry Kane had scored a 49th minute goal at the Westenfalenstadion which disheartened the hopes of Dortmund making any sort of comeback, Burki praised the Spurs hitman.
Kane has hit the goal trail once again following his ankle ligament injury in January against Manchester United but has wasted no time in scoring three goals in four appearances since his return to fitness.
Spurs rarely had a sight of goal during the second leg against Dortmund, but Kane showed how lethal he is in front of goal by making no mistake with his finish that secured a crucial away goal.
The goal also held extra significance for Kane as it made him the outright top scorer for Spurs in European competition, surpassing Jermain Defoe.
Burki was very humble in his admiration for the 25-year-old by describing him as a ‘beast’.
The goalkeeper told Goal.com: “We knew it will be really difficult because of the loss in the first leg. Tottenham waited for their chance and with Harry Kane up front you can do that.
“You know he will score and it was like that. It was unlucky for us, but we played very well, especially in the first half. We need to take the positive things out of this game for the Bundesliga.
“I think if we would have scored one goal in London the situation would have been completely different. In the end that is football.
“They had one chance and scored, we had five or six chances and didn’t score.
“Harry Kane is a beast. A player every team would love to have.”
