  • Bayern Coach Thomas Tuchel Backs Harry Kane To 'Deliver' Against Real Madrid

Bayern coach Thomas Tuchel backs Harry Kane to 'deliver' against Real Madrid

Thomas Tuchel expressed his belief in Harry Kane's ability to propel Bayern Munich past Real Madrid and into the Champions League final.

Kane, who has enjoyed a prolific season with 44 goals in 44 matches, including a crucial penalty in the first leg, brings not only his goal-scoring prowess but also his leadership qualities to the team. 

"I knew we'd get a big personality into the dressing room on top of everything you can analyse, goalscoring, movements, dealing with the pressure," Tuchel told a news conference.

"He was captain of Tottenham and is still captain of the English national team. He brought everything to the table that we could possibly hope for – and tomorrow he needs to prove the point and deliver."

Tuchel then humorously remarked on Kane's fondness for cappuccinos, adding a light-hearted touch to the discussion.

"How much cappuccino he drinks a day, it's ridiculous," joked a relaxed Tuchel.

"It's very surprising. All the time I go to the kitchen he's on the coffee machine and having a cappuccino. It's obviously good – I started doing it, the guy looks healthy and he's in good shape."

Acknowledging the challenge posed by Real Madrid's two-goal hero in the first leg Vinicius Junior, Tuchel emphasized the importance of maintaining the right mentality and quality to overcome difficulties and achieve their dream of reaching Wembley.

"A lot of teams have tried and it's not always possible (with the) quality in the passing, the delivery," said Tuchel.

"I cannot sit here and say you can stop all the deliveries tomorrow, it’s impossible… He can still hurt any team in the world, a big part of it is accepting it – it's possible not everything will be perfect for us.

"It's still possible to overcome difficulties, hang in there, show the right mentality and quality and fulfil our dream, we want to go to Wembley so we need to beat Real Madrid with Vinicius."
