Harry Kane returns to the English fields for a moment on Tuesday evening, as Bayern Munich faces Manchester United in the Champions League. And, of course, this does not go unnoticed.

Kane less selfish than other strikers: 'His passes are insanely good'

Kane could have opted for Erik ten Hag's club last summer, but he eventually left his beloved Tottenham Hotspur for Bayern Munich. 

The story behind this transfer saga is being revisited by many English media on Tuesday. Naturally, the thirty-year-old striker was also a topic of discussion during Thomas Tuchel's press briefing.

Tuchel is thrilled that Kane, who has already scored 22 goals in German service, chose Bayern. "We are very proud that we were able to attract Harry. He has a great personality and is an exemplary professional, an amazing player. He scores a lot of goals, and he will be very happy to play here tomorrow. It remains a beautiful story, that we brought the captain of England to Germany."

At Bayern, Kane is the successor to Robert Lewandowski, who moved to Barcelona last year. Kingsley Coman is impressed by his new attacking partner. "I knew he was good, but not this good," said the French winger to Sky Sports. "It's great to play with such a striker. It's very nice to have someone in the team whose goals you can rely on."


Coman, who played with Lewandowski at Bayern, was a teammate of Karim Benzema in the French national team, and experienced Carlos Tévez up close at Juventus, notices one thing about Kane: "The difference is that he is not selfish. Usually, number 9s are selfish, which is necessary to score a lot. But Harry also gives insanely good passes to Leroy, Jamal, and me. That makes the difference."

With team player Kane, Bayern is looking for redemption against United on Tuesday, after being embarrassed by Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Saturday. While Der Rekordmeister is already assured of a place in the round of 16, Ten Hag's United still has to work hard to avoid being eliminated in the group stage. Meanwhile, FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray will also be in action in Group A.
