The biggest festival of club football is back and so is the hit show by CBS Sports which includes legendary Arsenal striker Thierry Henry, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher, and the beloved Micah Richards as pundits, with one of the most popular hosts in Kate Abdo.
Bayern Munich played Manchester United at Allianz Arena; a nail-biting match that saw 7 goals scored between the two, with the hosts clinching the victory. During the post-match interview, it was time for Bayern’s marquee signing Harry Kane, who also scored one goal and gave one assist, to face the banter of Thierry Henry.
The Champions League winner started the post-match talk with Kane, by complimenting him. However, it was not just a compliment but more of a banter as Henry said how nice he looks in “red and white”, as Bayern’s home kit this season is red and white, and so is Arsenal’s.
For people who don’t know, Harry Kane as a child supported Arsenal, and even played one season in Arsenal’s youth academy during 2001-2002, the same time when Henry was the most important player for the red and white.
The banter makes more sense as Kane would go on to play for Tottenham, Arsenal’s regional rivals. While Henry gave the compliment with a pun, the English captain replied with a cheeky smile.
However, this was not the end of it, as after a more serious discussion about Bayern, the difference between the Bundesliga and Premier League, and the Champions League, Henry would come to the “red and white” theme.
The reference this time was about the upcoming North London derby that will be played on the coming Sunday, a tight fixture as both Arsenal and Tottenham are having a fine run of form and also level on points.
When the former Barcelona striker asked the Bayern man who is the favorite to win, Kane replied “Of course Tottenham”, showing his love for the club that made him the legend he is today, to which Henry showed his light-hearted disappointment.
Spurs fans were delighted with Harry Kane’s response, as he said, “We started the season well”, indicating Tottenham’s great start under Ange. The “we” in particular made Tottenham fans emotional as it highlighted the fact that Kane still feels himself a part of the Spurs family.
