Bayern Munich has suffered its first official defeat of the season.
Bayern Munich suffered a 0-3 defeat in the German Super Cup against Leipzig at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, on Wednesday. Bayern Munich’s first game of the season exposed their shaky form.
Bayern Munich announced the signing of Kane on December 12, one day before the Super Cup against Leipzig. Kane traveled from London to Munich on Nov. 11 to join the Bavarians and confirmed his move a day later after a medical. Kane then came on as a substitute in the Super Cup, one day after joining Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich paid close to £100 million to acquire Kane, making him the most expensive transfer in Bundesliga history.
German outlet NTV commented on Bayern Munich’s defeat to Leipzig, saying: ‘Was it the Kane curse that struck fear into Tuchel’s heart,’ and ‘Kane is now one of the greatest strikers in the world, but he has never won a title. He won’t be lifting a trophy at Bayern Munich any time soon either. He added: “It is quite surprising that Leipzig won the first title of the new season. Bayern Munich have won the Super Cup six times in the last seven years and three years in a row.
The outlet added: ‘Kane’s Bayern Munich debut could have been a spectacular one. Kane hadn’t won a trophy with Tottenham in 12 years.
Kane is Tottenham’s all-time record goalscorer with 280 goals in 435 appearances for the club. In addition to being the most prolific individual Premier League goal scorer among active players, Kane is also a three-time Premier League top scorer. After failing to win a trophy with Tottenham, Kane moved to Bayern Munich. The Bavarians were shocked by Leipzig in the Super Cup, prompting England pundit Lineker, a former World Cup goalscorer, to joke that Kane could have won more trophies on his first day at Bayern Munich than he did in over a decade at Tottenham.
Kane came on as an 18th minute substitute in the second half against Leipzig and played just over 20 minutes, but was a non-factor with just three touches on goal. German outlet Sport gave Kane the lowest rating of five for his performance against Leipzig. 메이저사이트
