Harry Kane has opened up on his decision to leave Tottenham Hotspur and join Bayern Munich in the summer, calling it a mad experience.
Spurs’s all-time record goalscorer leaving the club in the summer was a bitter pill to swallow. After all, Kane had been at the North London club for 19 long years and nobody wanted to see the day of his exit finally arrive.
Kane played 430 times for Spurs, scoring 278 goals and providing 64 assists (Transfermarkt). When his transfer to Bayern Munich was announced, the Englishman was just 47 goals away from eclipsing Alan Shearer’s all-time Premier League goals record.
Since joining the German giants, Kane has set the Bundesliga alight with his goalscoring performances. In just 18 matches for Bayern this season, he has scored 22 goals and provided seven assists (Transfermarkt)
Spurs have had an impressive start to the season as well. They were unbeaten in the first 10 Premier League games before losing three on the bounce. They find themselves just six points off the top of the table after that draw with Man City at the weekend.

He said: “It was a bit of a mad experience, to be honest. I didn’t really know what to expect… I was stepping out of my comfort zone.
“Last season, all I focused on was Spurs and trying to help the club finish as high as possible in the table. Once the season finished, I spoke to Spurs and explained that I felt it was time to move on and push myself as far as possible.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Even the most ardent of Spurs fans would have not been optimistic about this season following Kane’s departure. Ange Postecoglou has really managed to turn the situation around though with his astute management.
Despite the three losses, we find ourselves in a great position this season. A win against Manchester City this weekend will give us a lot of confidence and let’s hope we can get the better of Pep Guardiola’s team.
