Thomas Tuchel offers Harry Kane injury update ahead of Euro 2024


Harry Kane of Real Madrid looks on prior to the UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg match between Real Madrid and FC Bayern München at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on May 08, 2024 in Madrid, Spain.

Harry Kane is suffering from back problems as Euro 2024 approaches, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed. 

The Englishman was taken off late on in Bayern's 2-1 midweek defeat by Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals. 

Fans were puzzled by the decision to withdraw Kane, with Bayern up 1-0 at the time before Joselu grabbed two late goals to knock them out.

Tuchel insisted that Kane couldn't have played on and has now revealed that his back issue is ongoing. 

'Harry Kane has back problems,' he said ahead of Bayern's Bundesliga assignment against Wolfsburg on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate will be hoping those rear niggles can be resolved ahead of Euro 2024 in Germany. 

England kick off their campaign against Serbia on June 16.

Their first warm-up friendly is against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 3, which is just over three weeks away. 

Kane reported for England duty during the last international break but missed the games against Brazil and Belgium due to an ankle injury. 

The 30-year-old had suffered the blow after colliding with the post during a 5-2 win over Darmstadt and had to have scans. 

Kane is England's leading all-time goalscorer with 62 goals and has endured a bittersweet debut season in Munich. 

He has had his best personal season with 44 goals in 45 games but somehow times his £100m arrival with Bayern's first trophyless season since 2011-12.

They sit third in the Bundesliga - having previously won it 11 times in a row - and were knocked out of the DFB-Pokal in ignominious fashion by third-tier Saarbrucken. 

His debut match was a 3-0 German Super Cup defeat by RB Leipzig, when he came off the bench.

While their Champions League run was impressive, it came to an end at the semi-final stage with a 4-3 loss on aggregate to 14-time champions Real Madrid.
