Now, he will face the Red Devils in the Champions League because the soccer gods just have a way of making these things happen.
“Obviously there were talks with different clubs in the summer. But Bayern was a club I was really interested in. Once they came in there weren’t many other options. And now, fortunately, I’m here. Of course, Manchester is a big club. But now my focus is on here and I’m very happy,” Kane said (as captured by @iMiaSanMia).
Kane will now look across the field and see that familiar opponent — one that might not be operating at peak levels of performance, but should be considered dangerous anyway.
“United are currently going through a difficult phase. We expect a reaction from them. We want to control the game at home and have to look out for their strengths. We have to create enough chances,” Kane said. “There’s a reason why Bayern brought me in. Bayern want to win the Champions League again and I want to give everything to achieve that. But first we have to qualify for the knockout stage. Now we hope for a good start.”
