‘I was at Spurs for 19 years’ – Harry Kane opens up on decision to join Bayern

Harry Kane has insisted that he always wanted to test himself in a new league and admitted that he is delighted with the way things are going for him at Bayern Munich.

Kane has been the most consistent number nine for almost a decade in the best league in the world and there were thus never any doubts that he would succeed at Bayern.

However, maybe even he would not have expected to start as well as he has in Germany, with the 30-year-old having found the back of the net 21 times and provided seven assists in 16 matches across all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).

Some might have been surprised at Kane’s decision to leave the Premier League when he was so close to Alan Shearer’s record but the striker revealed that he was keen to experience a new culture.

Harry Kane always wanted to leave England

Kane told Channel 4 (via Daily Mail): “It was always something I wanted to do [move abroad]. I was at Spurs for 19 years but always in the back of my mind wanted to experience a new league, a new culture and team.

“Things in football come together at the right time and Bayern were there and I was excited by the challenge I face going there.”

The former Tottenham man is yet to win any silverware in his career, but he is dreaming of ending the drought by winning the ultimate prizes with club and country this season.

The centre-forward added: “The Bundesliga and Champions League are what we are setting out to win and the Euros with England we are setting out to win.

“The teams I am in have really good chance of winning those trophies. The aim with England is to win Euros, we came extremely close in the last one and that made us hungrier to come back and win this one. No excuses, we want to win titles and to do so with England would be the most special feeling ever.”

If Bayern manage to win the Champions League or if England win Euro 2024, Kane would have a very good chance of winning next year’s Ballon d’Or. The striker certainly looks on course to break all sorts of records in Germany.
