Harry Kane says the pressure to pick up results consistently is considerably higher at Bayern Munich than it was at Tottenham since the German side are expected to win every game.
It seems overwhelmingly likely that the striker will break his trophy duck this season, given that Bayern have won 11 consecutive Bundesliga titles.
This season, Thomas Tuchel’s men are also considered by some to be one of the leading contenders to win the Champions League, given the signings that they have made this summer.
Harry Kane is thriving on the pressure at Bayern
Kane has now said that he is relishing going into games and competitions with higher expectations than he was used to at Spurs.
He told The Independent: “It’s definitely a different pressure compared to what I felt at Spurs. Of course, we wanted to win things at Spurs but if you went a couple of games without winning then it wasn’t a disaster.
“The feeling at Bayern is that you have to win every game. We won the first two games 4-0 and 3-1 and there was still talk about not being too happy about the way we played. That’s part and parcel of being at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
“But we’ve had a good start and I’m enjoying feeling those different emotions and that’s part of the reason that I wanted to go. And we start the Champions League campaign when we get back, which they expect to win – or have a good chance of winning. So you’re going into those games with maybe a different feeling to what I’ve had in the past.”
If Bayern do win the Champions League this season, Kane will lift the trophy in his hometown, with the final set to take place at Wembley.
When asked about a potential fairytale ending to the season in London, the 30-year-old said: “Yes! I have been told about the Champions League final in Wembley, for sure.
“I know the Euros are in Germany next summer so if there’s someone out there writing a movie, I will try and do my best to make it happen! 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.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I want Kane to lift the Champions League with Bayern as the striker is undoubtedly one of the best players in world football and he deserves to be in the frame for awards like the Ballon d’Or, given how consistent he has been over the best part of a decade.
