Kane to miss final Bundesliga game

Harry Kane will miss Bayern Munich’s final game of the Bundesliga season at Hoffenheim on Saturday because of an ongoing back injury.

Kane, 30, has not played since he was substituted in Bayern’s Champions League semi-final second leg defeat at Real Madrid on 8 May.

The German side were winning 1-0 at the Bernabeu when Kane was withdrawn and conceded two late goals to go out of the competition.

The striker’s absence from Bayern’s season finale may concern England manager Gareth Southgate, who is preparing to name his preliminary squad for this summer’s European Championship on Tuesday.

Kane has scored 44 goals in 45 appearances in all competitions for Bayern since joining from Tottenham last summer.

Bayern have failed to win the Bundesliga for the first time in 12 years but can secure second place behind champions Bayer Leverkusen with victory at Hoffenheim.
