Former Liverpool midfielder Luis Garcia has criticised Harry Kane over his recent comments about Tottenham Hotspur and the pressure of winning games there to that of Bayern Munich.

Kane sealed his departure from Tottenham last month in a £100million deal to Bayern Munich (The Guardian) having had less than a year remaining on his contract with his boyhood club and signed a deal with the Bundesliga giants until June 2027.

The 30-year-old failed to win any silverware during his 19-year association with Tottenham and claimed that failing to win a couple of matches in a row for the Premier League side was not considered to be a disaster.

Kane told Sky Sports.“It’s a different pressure to what I felt at Spurs. Of course, we wanted to win things but if you went a couple of games without winning, it wasn’t a disaster. The feeling at Bayern is that you have to win every game.”

Harry Kane’s comments were disrespectful to Tottenham

Garcia told ESPN: “I think that he was the captain, he should’ve stepped up and said: ‘listen, we need to win this one, and we’re going to talk with the chairman and we have to win every single game’. Maybe some of that is on his fault,”

“There are ways of saying things and I think I wouldn’t agree. I wouldn’t say that kind of comments because you are hurting a lot of teammates, players, fans, because if you’ve been part of that, then you are undermining that team that gave you so many important things to you, in terms of your career.”

Many Tottenham fans do not appreciate Kane having to belittle the club to talk up his move to Bayern when the stark reality is that he failed to ‘turn up’ when the North Londoners had the opportunity of winning silverware.

The Champions League final was a prime example of how he came back into the side despite Lucas Moura’s heroics and did absolutely nothing to threaten the Liverpool goal, instead, spending the match being marked out of the game by Virgil van Dijk.
