Harry Kane believes he is ready for the pressure to win trophies at Bayern Munich and admits you ‘have to win’ at the Bundesliga champions.
Kane has signed for the German giants in a deal worth up to £100m including add-ons and is in line to make his Bundesliga debut when Bayern open their campaign at Werder Bremen on Friday evening.
The 30-year-old has failed to win a major trophy in his career to date, but is relishing the chance to compete for the biggest prizes in Germany.
Bayern have won 11 consecutive Bundesliga titles and will start among the favourites for Champions League success this season, a situation Kane believes can lead to team and individual honours.
“A lot of people talk about the trophies and why I came here, but ultimately it was to improve, to feel a new pressure of having to win titles every year, having to go far in the Champions League and pushing myself to that limit,” the England captain told Sky Sports.
“If you are winning games, if you are winning titles, if you are winning Champions League titles and I’m the one playing up front, it’s more likely that I am going to be the one scoring goals, which then allows you to win other individual awards.
“But that all comes from what you achieve as a team. That is my focus first and foremost and that starts this Friday.
“We’ve got a long season ahead. There’s a lot of pressure for Bayern Munich to win the league and go far in the Champions League, and that is what I am excited to challenge myself with.
“When you are at a club like Bayern Munich you have to win. There are no questions about it.”
