Harry Kane takes a subtle jab at his former club Tottenham’s mentality while discussing the “pressure” at Bayern

Harry Kane has subtly criticized Tottenham Hotspur’s mentality while discussing his new life at Bayern Munich.

Kane, at the age of 30, made a £100 million move to the Bundesliga giants in August, signing a four-year deal and concluding a 19-year career at Spurs.

The England captain has enjoyed a prolific start to his time in Germany, scoring three goals and providing one assist in three league appearances. Thomas Tuchel’s side currently stands second in the league table, behind Bayer Leverkusen on goal difference.

During international duty, Kane compared the contrasting expectations at Bayern to those at Tottenham, acknowledging that there is a “different pressure” at the Allianz Arena.

“It’s definitely a different pressure compared to what I felt at Spurs,” he said during a press conference ahead of England’s Euro 2024 qualifying clash against Ukraine.

“Of course we wanted to win things at Spurs but if you went a couple of games without winning then it wasn’t a disaster. 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 the way 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 to what I’ve had in the past.”

Many supporters may have been left surprised with how Spurs have coped in the absence of Kane so far, with the north London club currently second in the Premier League table under the guidance of Ange Postecoglou.

However, a penalty shootout defeat to Fulham in the opening round of the EFL Cup saw their first chance at silverware slip away.
