Bayern Munich star and Tottenham hero Harry Kane was left delighted after his side knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Kane, who left Spurs after a 19-year spell in the summer to join the Bundesliga giants, didn’t get on the scoresheet in the second leg but it didn’t matter as Bayern booked their spot in the last four thanks to Joshua Kimmich’s winner.

The England captain scored in the first leg – a 2-2 draw at the Emirates – and has now offered his reaction as Bayern edged past Mikel Arteta’s team in Germany.

‘An unbelievable win,’ Kane told TNT Sports. ‘It’s been a tough season for us. We’ve had to fight and grind it out at times.

‘We knew we could make the difference with our fans at home. It was a tough game, a tight game. It was a great goal from Josh [Kimmich].

‘To reach the semi-finals is a great achievement for us and we can enjoy it. I think in these types of games the first half is always a bit cagey.

‘We said at half-time we wanted to up the tempo, be aggressive. We had a couple off the post and could have made it easier for ourselves but these games are always tough and you just have to get through them.

‘The expectation here is to try and win the Champions League. We won the league for 11 years in a row so maybe there was a bit of tempo missing.

‘That can’t happen. Now we have to enjoy the Champions League and try to get ready for Saturday.’

Bayern shockingly missed out on the Bundesliga title this season to Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen.

Former Arsenal star Granit Xhaka helped Leverkusen secure the trophy and has revealed that he is still in touch with some old faces at the Emirates.

‘There is still contact with Arsenal and the coaches and players,’ Xhaka said on Wednesday ahead of Leverkusen’s Europa League clash against West Ham.

‘Of course, I got a lot of messages and I am proud to be part of this team.’
