“He’s a phenomenon,” said the captain. Newer after the German football champions’ victory with a score of 2:1 (0:0) over Istanbul’s Galatasaray. Kane again became a match winner as a double scorer and brought the Munich team victory in the group and access to the 1/8 finals of the Champions League.

“I can’t say anything more,” replied Tuchel when asked about the classification of Kane’s performances: “The performance tells the story, no further words are required.”

Leading figure of the Munich star ensemble

Kane continued his current super run. In his last three games for Bayern, he has scored three times in the Bundesliga against Darmstadt and Dortmund, and now twice in the Premier League. The most expensive purchase in Bayern’s history comes after he played 15 competitive games and scored 19 goals this season. “As a striker, I obviously like to score goals,” Kane said. “I feel like I get to know the guys better and better every game.”

Before his double celebration in the match against Galatasaray, the England captain also hit the post in the 80th and 86th minutes. He had to wait a long time for his first goal to be confirmed because the video evidence caused momentary irritation. “We can rely on him,” Neuer said of Kane.

The England striker has quickly emerged as the new leading figure in Munich’s star-studded ensemble. “It’s nice and I love it. I love scoring goals and winning. It was a great night,” said Kane, who was not surprised by his performance. “I wouldn’t say I’m surprised, but of course I’m very happy.”
