Bundesliga: Harry Kane's 'curse': Left Tottenham to win titles with Bayern and have already lost two… in 15 games!
Harry Kane’s world seems to be turned upside down. The English striker was traded by Tottenham Bayern Munich Last summer, Bayern had a clear goal of winning silverware, but in just 15 games they have already said goodbye to two of the four titles they were fighting for this season.
They lost the Super Cup against RB Leipzig (3-0) in Kane’s debut. A historic hat trick by Dani Olmo prevented the Englishman, who came on as a substitute in the 64th minute when he was 2-0 down, from winning the first title of his career.
“I feel sorry for him, maybe he thought we hadn’t trained for four weeks,” he exclaimed Thomas Tuchel after the defeat.
The second setback came in the cup against Low Saarbrücken. The fifteenth-placed team in the third German league knocked the outstanding FC Bayern out of the DFB Cup (2-1). Goals from Patrick Sontheimer (’45+1) and Marcel Gaus (’96) scored Thomas Müller’s (’16) opening goal.
Müller was frustrated with the situation, saying: “Only some people know how to respect the fans’ support.”
The Bayern nine didn’t play a single minute in the cup knockout against Saarbrücken. He sat on the bench and Tuchel did not take advantage of the five changes, preferring to save him for Saturday’s game Borussia Dortmund.
So far the reality is far from the statement Kane‘s presentation in August when he explained: “I want to play in the Champions League and fight for titles. My goal is to win all the trophies we are playing for.”
In Germany, Bayern, who remain unbeatable in the Champions League, are not leaders either: they are in second place in the Bundesliga, two points behind the surprising Xabi Alonso Bayer Leverkusen Page. To make matters worse, “his” Tottenhamwho have not won a title since 2008, are at the top of the Premier League.
“We’ll see (whether Bayern and Tottenham can win the league)”, Kane said. “There’s still a long way to go but I’m keeping an eye on the Premiership and things are going very well at the moment.”
Kane: 14 goals in 13 games
The truth is that you can hardly ask for more from Bayern, despite two trophies eluding them Kane. The previous Tottenham The man was involved in 21 goals in the 13 games he played, scoring 14 and assisting seven. In fact, it is the Englishman who scored a hat-trick in the 8-0 win Darmstadtincluding a goal from their own half.
He became the first player to score 12 goals in his first 10 games in Bundesliga history. At this rate and form, it is certainly only a matter of time before he finally achieves a major honor in his football career.
