Harry Kane’s switch from a Tottenham Hotspur jersey to a Bayern Munich one, according to Thierry Henry, is ‘strange’ looking.
In Bayern Munich’s 4-3 victory over Manchester United on Wednesday night, Harry Kane made his Champions League debut, scoring from the penalty spot for the German champions.
In an interview with CBS Sports on Paramount (20/09/23 at 7:50 pm), Arsenal veteran Thierry Henry claimed that Harry Kane is now playing a “different” role under Thomas Tuchel as opposed to being able to drop deep in Tottenham colors, where he would feed the on-rushing Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski.
The 30-year-old’s ability to score goals for Bayern hasn’t changed because he has done so five times in six appearances across all competitions.
With Harry Kane already on board, many will now be picking Bayern to win the Champions League this season. All that remains is to add a few trophies to those aspirations.
Even if it’s strange to watch the England captain leave the Premier League, he had to make the change in order to advance his professional standing.
Thierry Henry on Harry Kane
In all honesty, Henry acknowledged that Kane’s appearance in a Bayern jersey “does look odd.” However, the Harry Kane that plays for Bayern Munich is different, and as Tuchel noted, he is being asked to play at a very high level.
“We all know he could drop into midfield to get the ball at Tottenham,” someone said. Son and Kulusevski were going to sprint for him and score, but Bayern has urged him to play in a different style. Climb higher. Make runs while remaining in the box. In any case, he is an entire (player).
“Look, I have said it so many times and everyone knows what I think about Tottenham,” he replied when asked if he loves seeing Kane play for Bayern.
I simply like to watch him play. Stop there. At some point, you have to be truthful. You must set aside your rivalry and everything else. He is a player I enjoy watching since he is versatile. He is capable of entering middle. Deliver the ball. He makes that between-the-lines de Bruyne pass. It is in the air with him. He has a good head. Accept sanctions. He still has to improve his free-kicks.
“If you don’t like to see Harry Kane, how he plays alone up front at times and how he uses his body. When you play away from home, he can help you breathe a little easier.
Kane piles more misery on Manchester United
A few weeks ago, Erik ten Hag was put under pressure when Spurs defeated Manchester United at home.
Since then, further losses have occurred, including the Premier League weekend thrashing at the hands of Brighton at Old Trafford.
In any case, Kane once again scored against Manchester United, which is what he does best. His eighth blow was directed at the Old Trafford-based team.
