The Gunners have long been made to regret their decision to release England international forward Harry Kane from their academy as a school boy.
The forward has been in quite splendid form for North London outfit Tottenham Hotspur in recent seasons and he has been a frequent thorn in Arsenal’s team. He has scored seven goals in seven matches against Arsenal since his emergence with Tottenham and has cemented himself as one of Premier League’s best forwards.
Fans have been left asking questions as to why the Gunners did go ahead and offloaded Harry Kane during his earlier years, but ex-academy director Liam Brady has disclosed that the stance was made because of the forward’s build.
Talking to Italian media, as cited by talkSPORT, Brady reasoned the side’s decision to release the forward based on the opinion that the player was “chubby”.
He popped up to hurt the Gunners once again recently, as Spurs won against Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on Saturday thanks to a header from the Englishman.
