Harry Kane has reiterated his determination to win trophies at Bayern Munich ahead of the club’s crucial clash with Bayer Leverkusen this weekend.
Bayern sit second in the Bundesliga title race with an unbeaten Leverkusen team leading the race for the championship in Germany. The Bavarians have won 11 consecutive league titles in Germany, though their status as champions is under real threat this season.
Bayern’s challenge to defend their crown has been built on Kane’s prolific record in front of goal, with the England captain having had a record-breaking start in the club’s colours.
Kane has scored 24 goals in just 20 league appearances for Bayern this season, the most any player has ever scored in their first 20 appearances in the division.
On his start, Kane told BBC Sport: “I’m always extremely proud to have those sort of records. It’s not something I set out to do at the start but once you hear about them and once people are talking about them, it of course means you’re doing something really well.
“If you’d have told me I was going to do that at the start of the year, of course I’d have taken it – so I’m really happy from that sense, but as always, we try and push and try and see how far we can get.”
Bayern travel to face league leaders Leverkusen on Saturday evening and just two points separate the teams in the table ahead of the clash. Xabi Alonso’s team are unbeaten in 30 games in all competitions this season, though Kane is hopeful Bayern can take a big step towards silverware this weekend.
“I’ve made it clear that I want to be winning team trophies and that’s one of the things that’s missing from my career so far.
“But as always I’m not going to panic, either way I’m going to keep my head down, keep doing my best for the team and hopefully that starts with a good win on Saturday.”
