Harry Kane has settled in nicely at Bayern Munich since his move in the Summer, and the striker has already smashed 2 records in the Bundesliga!
Harry Kane made his move to the German giants in August of last year, with the aim of achieving silverware with a club at the top of his priorities.
Since joining Bayern Munich, the England captain has netted 28 goals and provided 8 assists in just 27 games for the club across all competitions.
24 of those goals have been scored in the Bundesliga, and have contributed to Kane smashing 2 previous records in the German Premier division!
The 2 records Harry Kane has smashed at Bayern Munich…
Kane has scored more goals in his first 20 Bundesliga appearances than any other player, earning him his first record, courtesy of his 24 league goals.
This leaves him requiring 18 more goals over his last 14 games of the league season in order for him to catch all-time Bundesliga top scorer Robert Lewandowski.
Lewandowski’s record sits at 41 goals across an entire Bundesliga season, and we are certain that Kane will have that in the back of his mind when he takes to the field.
However, this is not the only record that Kane has already beaten in his first 6 months with the club.
The England captain also became the first ever player to score a hat-trick in his first Der Klassiker appearance – the showdown between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
How does the England captain feel about his time with in Munich so far?
Discussing his success with Bayern Munich in an interview with BBC Sport, Kane said:
“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.”
Kane and Bayern Munich take next to the pitch on Saturday, in a Bundesliga showdown with a currently unbeaten and league-topping Bayern Leverkusen, who are currently 2 points clear of Munich.
With Kane’s drive to smash Lewandowski’s league record out of the park, and Bayern’s past 11 successive championship victories in the Bundesliga, that may well have changed come this time next week!
