The legendary managers believe the Tottenham Hotspur star struggled to get into the game in the first half.

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane suffered ankle ligament damage almost two months ago.

And he remained on the sidelines until today, when he started in the UEFA Champions League Final for the Spurs.

After the match, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger talked about how the England national team footballer should be ashamed of himself.

“We spoke a lot about Kane [before the match],” Wenger was quoted by The Express.

“He doesn’t look ready and overall only Son [Heung-min] looked dangerous, especially going in behind [Trent] Alexander-Arnold.”

“The reality is that Tottenham had 61 percent of ball possession but had zero shots on target,” Mourinho said.

“They missed lots of passes, they couldn’t link play.”

“Harry Kane was hidden all the time,” he added.

“He normally drops back, normally comes in-between the lines, normally he’s the link player.”

“He receives the ball from one side, he goes in-between the lines, he turns, plays with the other full-back of the other side, he arrives in the box,” he said.

“Nothing of this dynamic [has happened].”
