Harry Kane breaks silence after Bayern Munich's devastating defeat to Real Madrid

Harry Kane breaks silence after Bayern Munich's devastating defeat to Real Madrid

Bayern Munich were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid on Wednesday night.

Harry Kane has broken his silence after Bayern Munich's defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Bayern came within minutes of reaching another European final at Wembley but were stunned by two late goals in their semi-final second leg at the Bernabeu, losing 4-3 on aggregate on Wednesday night.

Bayern had looked on course to reach the final when Alphonso Davies fired them ahead in the second leg, after the first leg had finished 2-2 in Germany last week.

But two quick-fire goals from Real Madrid substitute Joselu in the final minutes of the match turned the tie on its head and secured the Spanish giants yet another famous victory in Europe.

They will now face Bayern's rivals Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final on June 1.

Defeat to Madrid ended Bayern's hopes of winning silverware this season.

They have already lost their Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen, while Thomas Tuchel's side were knocked out of the German Cup by Saarbrucken in February.

It means Kane's wait for his first major trophy must go on.

The former Tottenham striker, who joined Bayern in a £82m move last summer, was seen close to tears at the end of the defeat to Madrid.

He has now taken to social media to express his disappointment at the result.

"Gutted. Last night was tough to take," he posted on X.

"Proud of how we battled over the two legs which says everything you need to know about the spirit of this team and how far we can go."

Bayern boss Tuchel received criticism for taking Kane off the pitch when Bayern were leading 1-0.

Former Bayern midfielder Owen Hargreaves was among those to question the decision.

"That's one of the biggest subs I've ever seen in a game of football of that magnitude," said Hargreaves.

"To take off a guy who has scored 44 goals, who is the most durable player pretty much anywhere, and you bring on another striker in [Eric Maxim] Choupo-Moting.

"Maybe he wanted height for corners, I don't know. You cannot take him off."

Tuchel later claimed that he was forced to take Kane off because of an injury to the England captain.

"His [Kane] back had gone, he couldn't continue anymore," Tuchel told DAZN.

"The front four all said they had to come off."
