Harry Kane‘s dream transfer to German Champions Bayern Munich keeps on giving, as the 30-year-old English striker has netted 5 times in all competitions. Following the 4-3 win against Premier League club Manchester United in the UCL, Kane spoke to Media outlet ESPN. In the interview, the striker answered questions regarding his move to the Bundesliga, life in Germany, Champions League experience, and his goals for the season. Further, he also answered the question regarding how he plans on achieving Ronaldo-Messi levels of greatness.
Harry Kane commented that both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were still the benchmark for him earlier in his career. He also said that he is trying to replicate their careers in terms of longevity and the trajectory in their 30s. Kane said, “They are as good in their 30’s as they were in their 20’s.” He said that if he keeps his body in shape and mentality in check, he can keep playing for as long as he wants.
Talking about Messi and Ronaldo, Kane also added that he, like them, was in the “second half” of his career. After a ‘good first half’ with Tottenham, he wanted to make the second half even better. He added, “I’ve set the bar….and that just motivates me and tells me that it’s possible.”
Harry Kane is definitely one of Europe’s best strikers this season. Having bagged 4 goals and an assist in 4 Bundesliga games, in his UCL debut with the Bavarians, Kane also scored a goal and set up another. Bayern Munich won the game 4-3 against a struggling Manchester United side.
Kane speaks about life in Germany and Success for the Season
Speaking to ESPN, Harry Kane spoke about life in Germany, his prior experiences with Tottenham, and his goals and targets for the new season. He also spoke of his experiences with the national team and the ongoing Harry Maguire crisis in the team.
Kane said that his goals and targets were the same as that when he was at Tottenham, that is, to win trophies. The English striker said that even though his current target is just the “next game” and “preparing for the next moment”, ultimately, the season would be evaluated on the trophies won and matches won.
Harry Kane also talked about adjusting to life in Germany. He started learning German right after he arrived and met many new people. He’s currently staying in a hotel but plans to buy a home so his family can join him. Kane emphasized that his main focus is on playing well, and he’ll handle other matters privately.
He also said that his move to Germany was too soon to list any differences between the Bundesliga and the Premier League. Even though each game was “difficult in a different way”, Kane said that he has been enjoying playing different teams in the league, seeing different stadiums, as well as keeping up his goalscoring record.
