“Kane is wrong! We have a better FW”…Cologne coach’s taunt, Tuchel’s counterattack?
FC Koln coach Steffen Baumgart of the German Bundesliga has provoked Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel.
How? By provoking Harry Kane. Kane is Tuchel’s most ambitious signing. As the Bavarians look to win the UEFA Champions League (UCL) this season, Tuchel wanted a striker to replace Robert Lewandowski, and he saw Kane as the perfect fit.
Bayern Munich paid £100 million ($165.1 billion) for Kane, the highest transfer fee in club history. The Kane effect was immediate. Kane roared out of the gate with back-to-back goals in the first and second rounds, then took a break in the third round before returning to action against Leverkusen in the fourth round on Saturday. Bayern Munich and Leverkusen tied 2-2.
Four goals in four games for Kane. It was also Kane’s 300th goal for his club. That’s 280 for Tottenham, nine for Millwall, five for Leyton Orient, two for Leicester City and four for Bayern Munich.
However, Baumgartner’s assessment of Kane was that he was the wrong striker to sign. It’s a provocative statement. In Baumgartner”s opinion, there”s a better striker than Kane, and that”s Leverkusen striker Victor Boniface.카지노사이트
The 22-year-old striker has had a tremendous start to the season. Boniface has exploded for four goals in four games. He was silent against Bayern Munich, but his early season pace is similar to Kane’s.
“Bayern Munich would be better off with Boniface than Kane,” Baumgartner said. Kane is a player we can’t afford. But even if we had the money, I wouldn’t have pushed for Kane. He’s a great player, but what I’m looking for is the same type of striker as Boniface.”
“Boniface is one of the best strikers in Europe. He’s 22, he’s got good physicality. He’s 22 years old, he’s got good physicality, he’s got a lot of potential and he’s got a lot more to offer.”
Then Tuchel fired back. “It’s good that the coach of Cologne is worried about our transfer market,” Tuchel began in his press conference before the game against Leverkusen.
“Boniface is a completely different type of striker than Kane. The player we need, the type of striker we need in our team, is Kane. We are trying to integrate him better into the team and into our play. Kane will write his own success story at Bayern Munich. We are happy with Kane. Kane is the perfect player for Bayern Munich. Boniface is the right player for Leverkusen.”
