In an interview with Sky Sport Germany, Harry Kane (30) revealed that he signed with Bayern Munich to gain credibility and get closer to the Ballon d’Or, even if it is not a priority.
Harry Kane (30) turned a page at 19 years old this summer when he left Tottenham for Bayern Munich. In an interview with Sky Sport Germany, the English striker justified his choice by wanting to gain legitimacy within one of Europe’s best clubs and move upmarket. A very ambitious new start after impressing at Spurs (top scorer in the club’s history)… without winning a single title.
“If you don’t play at a top club like Bayern, you will be challenged immediately”
“To improve, I have to play at the highest level. That is one of the reasons why I have come here. I always want to win in all competitions and push my limits as long as I play professionally,” he added. “
By signing with the Bavarian giants, Kane is looking to finally fill his cupboard with some trophies but also cement his place among the greatest of all time. “If you don’t play for a top club like Bayern, you will soon be challenged,” he adds. In Tottenham or in the English national team. I focus on the team and myself individually rather than looking after cover. A good start in Bremen (Bundesliga matchday 1, Friday, 8:30 p.m. ET) will be key to a successful first month of the season.”
Kane eventually responds to the strong prospect of the goal aiming for the Ballon d’Or with Bayern, even if he isn’t obsessed with it. He explains, “If you want to win the Ballon d’Or, you have to win titles with your teams. Bundesliga, Champions League, Euro – there are some opportunities available to me. My main job is to score goals – and that’s what I’m doing right now.” I’m not thinking about individual awards like the Ballon d’Or at the moment.”
