Harry Kane, the England captain and former Tottenham Hotspur star, has subtly criticized his former club while lauding Bayern Munich’s “big club mentality.” Kane made the move to Bayern Munich in a deal that could reach £100 million and has already made a significant impact in the Bundesliga, scoring three goals in his first three appearances.
Kane’s decision to leave Tottenham for the Allianz Arena was driven by his ambition to secure major honors, with Bayern Munich aiming for a remarkable 12th consecutive Bundesliga title. The 30-year-old striker, who experienced near-misses with Spurs in various competitions, is hopeful that his chances of achieving tangible success at the club level will be greatly enhanced by joining a squad that demands nothing less than victory.
Speaking ahead of England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine in Poland, Kane highlighted the contrast between the two clubs: “We wanted to win at Spurs, but if you went a couple of games without winning it wasn’t a disaster. At Bayern, you have to win every game. After winning 3-1 and 4-0 in our first two games, there was talk about not being too happy about the way we played! That’s the top club mentality.”
Kane also expressed his excitement about the upcoming Champions League final at Wembley and the Euro 2024 finals taking place in Germany. He humorously mentioned his interest in someone potentially writing a movie script about his experiences, saying, “It’s hard. There’s so much time to go; I don’t want to think about it too much. But if it did happen, it would be incredible.”
As a fierce competitor, Kane admitted that watching his England teammates compete in the Champions League while he’s at home is a motivating factor. He stated, “Of course, I want them to do well, but a part of me wants to have those experiences. With the other players in the team having done that, I am not sure ‘jealous’ is the right word, but it does motivate me to go on and try to push myself towards some of those trophies the guys have got.”
Kane’s arrival at Bayern Munich has already made a significant impact, and he is determined to contribute to the club’s ongoing success as they pursue further domestic and international titles.
