Watch: Wenger and Mourinho agreed on something about Harry Kane

Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have had their fair share of clashes over the years in the Premier League, but the pair certainly saw eye to eye on Harry Kane’s performance for Tottenham Hotspur last night while acting as pundits for beIN Sports.

The striker was recalled to the starting line up for the Champions League final in place of Lucas Moura but failed to pose a threat to Jurgen Klopp’s side . Former Arsenal boss Wenger claimed that Kane did not look ready to start the match which was his first appearance since early April following his ankle injury

Mourinho also noticed a difference in Kane’s performance with the striker not dropping back and running between the lines to create space and described the England hit man as ‘hidden’.

The pair were certainly right with their analysis, albeit at half time which also proved to be right come the final whistle.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Just like the recall for Burnley game, bringing back a non match fit Kane was I believe always going to be big a risk. With Kane in the side Tottenham never posed a significant enough goal threat in a game where Liverpool in truth ween’t exactly on fire. Whilst Tottenham were largely dominant (for want of a better word) in the game overall, all to often they slowed the pace of the game down going forward enabling a resolute Liverpool defence to easily cope by and large with what a all too predictableTottenham had to offer, and this really has been the defining failure of Spurs for much of the season. Aside from Tottenham’s shortcomings, in all honesty I have to say this was one of the poorest CL finals I have ever witnessed, and I truly don’t think either side covered themselves in glory last night, and for what its actually worth congratulations to Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool FC (excuse me now whilst I stifle a very long yawn!)
