Eric Dier says Bayern Munich teammate Harry Kane is the ‘best finisher in the world’ as he is compared to Lionel Messi

Kane has scored an impressive 33 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions this season, following his summer move from Tottenham. His compatriot Eric Dier, on loan from Spurs to Bayern in January, compared the striker’s goal-scoring skills to that of Inter Miami star and Argentina World Cup winner Messi.

He told the Times: “ Harry is the best finisher in the world. Other than (Lionel) Messi, I don’t know if there’s a better left-handed finisher, even for a left-hander, than Harry. And there is also his holding game, very good in the air, his awareness and his way of turning, especially when he is on the left side of the field and he turns inside on his right foot. »

Bayern in difficulty despite Kane

Despite all of Kane’s goals this season, Bayern are in trouble. They are 10 points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen, are eliminated from the DFB-Pokal Cup and their last hope of winning a trophy lies in the Champions League, where they are through to the quarter-finals. If they do not win this competition, the Bavarians could experience their first season without a trophy since 2011/12.

Second-placed Bayern host relegation-threatened Mainz on Saturday afternoon to reduce Leverkusen’s lead at the top of the table to seven points, while Xabi Alonso’s side host Wolfsburg on Sunday.
