Robert Lewandowski’s league goals record was “still a bit too far away” for Harry Kane, a striker for Bayern Munich. Kane scored two goals in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Heidenheim.
Kane scored twice in the first half, giving him 17 goals in 11 games this season. He is getting closer to Lewandowski’s record of 41 goals, which he set in 2020-21.
Kane said of the record, “It’s a little too far away yet.” He also told reporters, “I’m sure you guys will bring it up every time I score.”
“I just need to be focused game by game… if we’re close in April, then I’m sure it’ll be something I’ll try and reach.”
Kane, 30, told media that “my best start of a season so far” made him “proud.”
“With everything going on, on and off the pitch, it’s never easy.” Moving clubs for the first time, so I’m really pleased with how things have gone so far.
Before moving to Barcelona in the summer of 2022, Lewandowski scored 312 goals in 384 games for Borussia Dortmund and Bayern. But not even the Pole started a season with 17 goals in 11 games, like the England captain has done now.
Kane scored 17 goals, which was more than nine teams in the league had scored all season. It was also one more than the record set last season.
“As a striker, there are times when you’re just in the zone, the ball skips past the post and into the side of the net.”
“You have to ride with that and at the moment I’m in a good moment.”
