Former Tottenham striker Harry Kane has revealed that he remains a fan of the club despite moving to Bayern Munich this summer.
The English striker completed a £100million move to Bayern Munich in September after several unsuccessful seasons in North London, where he failed to win a trophy. Spurs were reluctant to sell him and only agreed to part ways with him after Bayern offered irresistible money.
The Premier League side were expected to struggle in Kane’s absence. But contrary to expectation, since his departure, Tottenham, under their new coach Ange Postecoglue, have been revitalised and sit top of the Premier League table going into the international break.
Meanwhile, the 30-year-old is also enjoying life in the Bundesliga, having scored nine goals in ten games.
Speaking about the fortunes of his former team, Kane admitted that he’ll always have a ‘soft spot’ for his boyhood club and lauded Postecoglou’s efforts.
“It’s great to see. I think I’ve said before, the manager is doing great for them with the way they’re playing,’ he said (via Sportsmail).
“The fans are right behind the team, and it’s definitely what they needed after the last few years.
“I’ll always keep an eye on Spurs and the Premier League. Of course, there’s still a long way to go, but as the manager said, there’s no reason why the fans shouldn’t be excited and happy with the way things are going. Hopefully, they can continue.
Tottenham‘s unbeaten start to the new season has some of the club’s fans dreaming of an unlikely title tilt, and with an easy fixture list after the break, they could maintain their table-topping position for weeks to come.
Kane says he wants his old club to win the Premier League title–something they have never done despite coming close under Mauricio Pochettino.
“I have made it clear my whole career I am a Tottenham fan, and I would love to see Tottenham do well,” he added.
“There is no other team in the Premier League I would want to win than Tottenham.”
The England captain also revealed that he has a soft spot for Tottenham despite his desire to do well at Bayern.
“Also, I have to be respectful to Bayern Munich, and of course, the fans know I will always have a soft spot for Spurs,” he said.
“There is no question about that – but I have got to put all my attention on Bayern Munich and to make us as successful as possible.
“So, I know there will be questions, for sure, particularly when Tottenham are doing well.
“Of course, I hope they do as well as possible, but my main attention is where I am now and trying to perform for Bayern.”
