The German media did not hold back in their criticism of the England star, labeling his performance as a “disaster” as Bayern Munich suffered a 3-0 defeat against Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen over the weekend. Kane faced severe criticism for his inability to rise to the occasion in a crucial match, marked as his poorest showing for the club thus far.

BILD characterized the match against Leverkusen as “The Kane disaster,” stating, “He was actually brought in for games like this. Harry Kane and his worst game in a Bayern jersey. Kane wasn’t in the game at all. No goal, no assist – BILD grade 6! Only his effort was right: he ran 10.8 km, only Mazraoui ran more for Bayern. He should win the top scorer cannon. But he came to Bayern to win championships.”

It proved to be an unusual off day for The Three Lions captain, who has otherwise maintained an impressive run of form throughout the ongoing season, tallying 28 goals in as many games across various competitions and providing eight assists. He recently matched Luca Toni’s record for the most Bundesliga goals in a debut season for The Bavarians and is poised to surpass Robert Lewandowski’s milestone of scoring 41 league goals in a single season in Germany.

Thomas Tuchel’s squad is set to face Lazio in the Champions League round of 16 away fixture on Wednesday.
