‘No team I want to win the Premier League more’- Harry Kane praises Ange Postecoglou's revamped Tottenham
Harry Kane, who left the team in the summer, has praised Ange Postecoglou's achievements at Tottenham.
It’s the second time he has scored three goals this season in the Bundesliga but his first hat-trick for the club in the league.
Kane at Bayern Munich
His track record as a prolific scorer and the ability to change the course of games with his finishing was expected to be a game-changer for the Bavarian giants.
The England captain has maintained his reputation at the Bundesliga champions, having scored in all but just two appearances so far for his new club.
However, despite hitting three of the goals two times this season, the latest against Darmstadt has seen the 30-year-old register his first hat-trick.
Why Kane’s goals finally count
The former Spurs skipper netted his first three goals this season in the 7-0 thrashing of VFL Bochum back in September.
Per a report from Give Me Sport, those goals were not considered a hat-trick due to a bizarre rule in Germany.
The standard for a hat-trick is said to be higher in the Bundesliga as you need to score all the goals in one half for it to count.
Kane’s goals against Bochum were netted in the 13th, 54th and 88th minutes unlike his latest which came in the 51st, 69th, and 88th minutes.
A hat-trick, a feat revered by footballers and fans, holds a special place in the hearts of goal scorers. It represents the pinnacle of their artistry and their ability to consistently find the back of the net.
You can see the smile of relief on the face of Kane, who has now scored 12 goals in nine matches in the Bundesliga despite not being a stranger to scoring goals in abundance.
