Harry Kane looks devastated as he hangs his head and hides behind a seat moments after the final whistle following Bayern’s dramatic defeat by Real Madrid in a Champions League thriller


Harry Kane hung his head sadly and hid behind a seat on the Bernabeu bench as Bayern Munich’s Champions League dream was dashed on Wednesday night.

The striker looked dejected as the whistle blew in Madrid, which spelled another year of pain for the 30-year-old.

Bayern capitulated before the end with a Joselu double after taking a 1-0 lead through Alphonso Davies to lose 4-3 on aggregate.

Kane has yet to claim a piece of silverware in his career, despite scoring 402 goals, reaching four finals and consistently being one of the best players of his generation.

After disappointments in the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal, Bayern’s exit from Europe confirms their first trophyless spell since 2011-12.

That’s not what Kane signed up for when he left his beloved Tottenham last summer for a £100million move to the red and white of Germany’s most famous club.

He was unable to make an impact in the final minutes of the match as he picked up a back injury after 85 minutes with his team 1-0 up.

Thomas Tuchel was adjudged to have pulled him off but explained he could not continue and was replaced by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.

Bayern thought they were on course for a repeat of the 2013 Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund when Alphonso Davies put them ahead against the run of play after 68 minutes.

And with two minutes left of the 90 minutes, Die Roten were still on course for a shock win at the Santiago Bernabeu – but Joselu had other ideas.

The former Stoke City player capitalized on Manuel Neuer’s mistake to equalize in the 88th minute and spur the home team on to turn the game on its head after a minute of added time.

And so it is Joselu who will reach the Champions League final and not Kane, who has broken his personal best with 44 goals this season.

As Rio Ferdinand said on TNT Sports: “He did his job. He scored goals. He did what he was paid to do. They bought him for a specific reason, to score goals but also to continue winning trophies.

“I think the others let him down more than anything else. He made what he had to make. He is a man who comes in and scores goals and creates chances for others. He did it. Over forty goals this season is a ridiculous amount, the most in his career.

“I don’t think he’s pointing the finger at him. He’ll have a heavy heart tonight, like everyone else, but him even more because he came here and they didn’t win the league for the first time in 11 years.»
