In contrast to his old team Tottenham Hotspur, Harry Kane has hyped up the standards of playing at a “top club” like Bayern Munich. The England skipper has had a brilliant start to his career at the Allianz Arena after switching from Spurs to Bayern in a move that was estimated to be worth approximately £100 million.
In four games across tournaments, the Three Lions’ all-time leading scorer recorded three goals along with one assist. At the Allianz Arena, there are a lot of high expectations, as Harry Kane has mentioned.
“There was talk about not being too happy about way we played”: Harry Kane
After leaving Tottenham, he appeared to hint that he had advanced (per transfer analyst Fabrizio Romano). He said, “We wanted to win at Spurs… but if you went a couple of games without winning it wasn’t a disaster. At Bayern you HAVE to win every game.”
Bayern has gotten off to a strong start in the Bundesliga, winning games against Werder Bremen (4-0), Augsburg (3-1), and Borussia Monchengladbach (2-1). Their new No.9 asserts that despite their wins, the Bavarians still sought to advance. He added, “After winning 3-1 and 4-0 first two games… there was talk about not being too happy about way we played! Top club mentality.”
Many believed Harry Kane would finish his career with Spurs because of his 19-year association alongside the north London club. With 278 goals as well as 64 assists across 430 appearances across tournaments, he emerged as the Lilywhites’ hero. Three times while playing for Spurs, he was the Golden Boot winner.
However, that time in north London was marred by an absence of winning medals. He has never won a trophy in his professional career, and his old team last won one in 2008. As a result, Harry Kane decided to sign with Bayern this summer, providing him the ideal chance to finally win championships. They are now among the favourites to claim the UEFA Champions League as a result of his arrival.

Kane needs to realistic; Spurs has a top club mentality just like Bayern Munich but luck doesn't shine on the team quite often. There's so much a manager/coach can do, & pressuring any already pressured squad will have negative impact. He shouldn't disrespect Spurs like that.

Spurs is a club now since he left… he was the backward strong hold.

He means there’s no pressure at Spurs because it’s a small club. I knew it.
