Barnsley midfielder Herbie Kane: Liverpool broke promises

Barnsley midfielder Herbie Kane has hit out at former club Liverpool.

Kane moved to Liverpool in 2015 from Bristol City, but after loan spells with Doncaster Rovers and Hull City, Kane left Liverpool this summer to permanently sign for Barnsley.

Speaking to the official Barnsley programme, Kane said: “It's not something I've really looked back at before, but I think with reflection, I'd probably stay at Bristol City if I had to make the same decision again.

“In terms of Liverpool, I've got to be honest, it wasn't the best. A lot of things are promised to you when they're trying to sign you, but nothing ever came of it. But that can be football in general to be honest.

“The only way I can explain what it was like for me there was how when you're playing as a kid and you're picking the teams, and you're the last one picked. It was that kind of feeling. It wasn't the best for me there.

“But it was valuable experience and I probably wouldn't be here at Barnsley without it."
