Wenger & Mourinho blast Kane after UCL defeat against L'pool

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 02/06/2019

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and ex-Real Madrid and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has blasted Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane for his lacklustre performance against Liverpool in the final of the Champions League on Saturday in Madrid.

Liverpool struck twice to clinch their sixth Champions League title via Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

Ex-Arsenal boss Wenger said: “We spoke a lot about Kane [before the match].

“He doesn't look ready and overall only Son [Heung-min] looked dangerous, especially going in behind [Trent] Alexander-Arnold."

Mourinho was also of a similar opinion, claiming Kane was “hidden" throughout the final.

Mourinho said: “The reality is that Tottenham had 61 per cent of ball possession but had zero shots on target.

“They missed lots of passes, they couldn't link play. Harry Kane was hidden all the time.

“He normally drops back, normally comes in-between the lines, normally he's the link player.

“He receives the ball from one side, he goes in-between the lines, he turns, plays with the other full-back of the other side, he arrives in the box.

“Nothing of this dynamic [has happened]."
