Tuchel confirms 'happy' Harry will play vs Man Utd
Thomas Tuchel has confirmed Harry Kane will play against Manchester United tomorrow.
Bayern Munich have already secured top spot in Champions League Group A with four wins out of five but their star striker is set to take to the field at Old Trafford, where the Red Devils need a victory to stand any chance of qualification.
Kane has scored 22 goals in all competitions this season since joining from Tottenham in the summer, including a penalty in the reverse fixture.
Tuchel said: "Every fan wants Harry to play in their team.
"We're very proud we were able to sign Harry.
"He's a great character and a great role model, a terrific player. He scores a lot of goals and will be very happy to play here tomorrow.
"It's a great story that we were able to bring the England captain, your centre forward, to Germany."
United go into the match on the back of a 3-0 home loss to Bournemouth, with Erik ten Hag's side booed by their own fans at full-time.
But Tuchel says tomorrow's hosts are still a dangerous outfit as his side look to extend a 39-game unbeaten run in Champions League group fixtures.
The Bayern boss added: "They're always a dangerous team, they have a certain aura about them.
"It's part of the club's DNA that they can survive difficult moments. They have ups and downs in their game, but they've conceded a lot of goals recently.
"In strong moments, you can see what they're really capable of. The stadium creates special moments. It will be a big challenge for us."
Tuchel was also eager to stress Bayern will give their all at Old Trafford, particularly after a 0-0 draw with FC Copenhagen last time out.
He said: "When you sign for Bayern or United, you sign to give 100% every day.
"We have high expectations, even if we are always under pressure. United will give everything tomorrow to get through.
"But we expect a top performance from us. I hope we can match United's enthusiasm and energy, which I'm sure they'll bring to the game."
