Harry Kane claims Bayern exudes ‘top club mentality’, admitting he ‘felt’ hurt during his Tottenham days watching England teammates lift trophies

The only thing a goalscorer loves more than scoring is winning trophies. Harry Kane’s trophyless era at Tottenham Hotspur was agonizing indeed. With a record £100 million transfer fee, he secured a move to Bundesliga side Bayern Munich, where he hopes to win lots of trophies.

Harry Kane has had an incredible start to his Bundesliga journey, scoring three times and assisting once already. He attributes his good start to the team’s winning mentality and hopes to keep it up as soon as the Champions League returns.

Harry Kane talks on Bayern Munich’s mentality

Harry Kane has praised Bayern Munich’s “exceptional mentality,” subtly alluding to his former club, Tottenham. He mentioned feeling pressured to win every match while at Bayern, as the club has high expectations. This Tottenham legend, who made a £100 million move to Bayern Munich this summer, has had a successful beginning in Munich, netting three goals in three league matches since joining the club.

Kane leads the England squad as they face Ukraine on Saturday. In the press conference preceding the game, he spoke about his departure from Spurs and arrival at Bayern Munich, praising his new club’s winning mentality.

Harry Kane experienced a disappointing start to his Bayern Munich journey as his team suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of RB Leipzig. This result resulted in Thomas Tuchel’s side missing out on the DFB Supercup. However, this one-match misfortune has witnessed a turn-around since he impressed in attack by scoring a goal against Weder Bremen and two against Augsburg.

Bayern Munich holds an astonishing domestic record, winning the Bundesliga title 11 consecutive times. Speaking on the club’s excellent winning mentality, Harry Kane says, “At Bayern, you have to win every game. After winning 3-1 and 4-0 in our first two games, there was talk about not being too happy about how we played! Top club mentality.”

Harry Kane felt heartbroken during his time at Tottenham

Harry Kane’s time at Tottenham was not exactly as he’d have wanted; he spent several years there without a trophy. However, the Englishman amassed a lot of individual accolades. On the other hand, the England captain has enjoyed a good start to his Bayern Munich career, scoring three goals and one assist in three games.

He has high hopes for his first season at Bayern, looking forward to winning the trophies he could not even dream of in his time in England. He spoke at length about how frustrating his trophyless era was at Spurs.

“It’s definitely a different pressure compared to what I felt at Spurs. Of course, we wanted to win things at Spurs, but it wasn’t a disaster if you went a couple of games without winning. The feeling at Bayern is that you have to win every game. We won the first two games, 4-0 and 3-1, and there was still talk about not being too happy about how we played.

“That’s part and parcel of being at one of the biggest clubs in the world. But we’ve had a good start, and I’m enjoying feeling those different emotions, and that’s part of the reason that I wanted to go. And we start the Champions League campaign when we get back, which they expect to win or have a good chance of winning. So you’re going into those games with maybe a different feeling than I’ve had in the past.”
