This is definitely one of the transfers of the summer. After 435 games in Tottenham colours, Harry Kane (30) made the decision to leave England to join Germany and Bayern Munich. Trained in the Spurs academy, the English international (84 caps, 58 goals) would know everything with the London club, except perhaps winning a title. And yet he had the opportunity.
Finishing second in the Premier League at the end of the 2016–17 season, Kane and Tottenham finished third in the Championship at the end of the 2015–16 and 2017–18 editions. In Europe, they were very close to the summit clash, failing in the 2018–19 Champions League final (a 2–0 defeat against Liverpool). His inability to break through the glass ceiling has undoubtedly affected his choice to join the title reigning eleven-time German champions. But after nearly two decades at Tottenham, “the Prince” wanted to send one last message to his club of one life.
Kane: ‘I am sorry to leave this club’
“Hello everyone, I wanted to be the first to let the Tottenham fans know that I am leaving the club today. Obviously there are a lot of emotions at the moment. I am sad to leave the club where I have spent almost 20 years of my life : From an 11 year old boy to a 30 year old man now, there are so many great moments and special memories that I will always cherish.He remembers. So this is a big thank you to all my teammates over the years, all my coaches and managers, every member of staff associated with the club and everyone involved. I have built relationships with many people.
especially thank you tottenham fansHe continues. From the moment I started here, I have been one of you and have given my everything to make you proud and to provide you with so many special moments and memories that will last forever, I hope. I thought it was time to leave. I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved future And meI think it is important that the new manager and players focus on getting Tottenham to the top and fighting for trophies. I wish Ange (Postecoglu, editor’s note) and friends all the best. Obviously, now I will look at it from a fan’s point of view and really hope that the team makes it a success. Thank you and see you soon.” A touching message for a player who has become a Spurs legend.
