Harry Kane says Man Utd legend is the ‘best finisher in football history’, he doesn’t even hesitate

Manchester United never concluded their pursuit of Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane, and unfortunately for the Red Devils, he found his way to the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich. 

He has scored more goals this season than even he could have predicted, but even with that, he is still expected to finish the season with his typical result. He will leave without a trophy.

Following Real Madrid’s incredible comeback at the Bernabeu, Harry Kane has now conceded defeat in the Champions League and is no longer eligible to win trophies with Die Roten.

Kane had few and far between opportunities to score against Real Madrid, but he was unable to establish himself in the game. The way Antonio Rudiger and Nacho Fernandez subdued the England captain was impressive.

He could’ve done with channelling a certain Manchester United legend who is all too familiar with the winning and goalscoring feeling in the Champions League.

Harry Kane names the best finisher of all time 

In a quickfire interview with GOAL, Tottenham Hotspur’s all-time leading goalscorer was asked who he believes is the greatest finisher of all time. He had a clear winner in mind from the off.

“Stay quiet until you hear the best finisher in football history. Henrik Larsson? Ruud van Nisterooy? Zlatan Ibrahimovic? Miroslav Klose? Mohamed Salah? Kylian Mbappe? Luis Suarez? Robert Lewandowski? Erling Haaland? R9? Lionel Messi?”

Then the interviewer asks one final player: “Cristiano Ronaldo?” Kane immediately replies, “Ronnie.”

Kane had absolutely no doubt in going for CR7, who has scored a record 890 senior career goals for club and country. Insane.

The difference between Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo 

Although Kane is on par with some of the greatest finishers in history, he differs significantly from the Portuguese goal scorer in one important area. The prizes for his hits.

Over the course of his career, Ronaldo has won 33 trophies, including the UEFA European Championship, the UEFA Nations League, five Champions Leagues, and seven league titles. Kane, what a complete zero.

With England being increasingly likely to win a trophy and Bayern Munich typically being a German powerhouse, this could change in the upcoming years. Still, the Harry Kane curse endures for the time being.
