Euro 2020: Harry Kane explains why he didn’t remove Coca Cola bottles like Ronaldo

England captain, Harry Kane, has said sponsors are entitled to do what they want, after choosing not to follow Cristiano Ronaldo in removing Coca Cola bottles at a pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Kane answered questions alongside manager Gareth Southgate ahead of Friday’s clash with Scotland.

The striker decided not to move the bottles kept in front of him, unlike some of his fellow superstars at Euro 2020.

Portugal captain, Ronaldo caused a stir earlier this week when he moved two Coke bottles out of view, insisting he prefers “Agua” (water).

Coca Cola is one of the main sponsors of Euro 2020 and has paid to display its products at press conferences involving star names.

Italy midfielder, Manuel Locatelli also opted to get rid of the Coke bottles. But with the spotlight on Kane, he was content with keeping the sponsors happy.

“Obviously the sponsors are entitled to what they want if they’ve paid the money to do so.

“It’s not something I’ve thought too much about. I’ve seen it go round on social media but if I’m totally honest I’m more focused on tomorrow [England’s match vs Scotland] than anything like that,” Kane said.
