Kane slams ‘schoolboy’ Spurs after Champions League exit

Harry Kane has slammed Tottenham’s ‘schoolboy’ defending after they were dumped out of the Champions League following a 2-1 defeat to Monaco on Tuesday evening.


The England international scored a penalty to cancel out Djibril Sidibe but less than a minute later, Thomas Lemar struck to secure victory for Leonardo Jardim’s side.

But along with the team’s poor defending, Kane admits Spurs’ form at Wembley has led to their downfall in Europe this season.

‘We’re disappointed obviously, I don’t think we were good enough today anyway but we got ourselves back in it at 1-1 and it was schoolboy to concede straight away after that,’ Kane told BT Sport.

‘We’ve got to try and push and get another but we conceded straight away and that took the stuffing out of us and we didn’t have enough to come back into the game.

‘Obviously we’re gutted. We wanted to go far, we’re all disappointed but it’s something we’ll have to deal with, dust ourselves down and get ready for the weekend [against Chelsea].

‘Losing two of our home games, in this competition it’s got to be a fortress. Although we’re at Wembley it’s no excuse, we’ve got to make it difficult and use it to our advantage and we didn’t.

‘It’s always difficult away from home in the Champions League, the home games is where we should have been better.’
