Harry Kane has a big evening ahead of him as Bayern Munich welcome Manchester United in the Champions League.

The German side are heavy favourites ahead of the match, with Erik ten Hag facing multiple injury issues, unable to call on either Antony or Jadon Sancho, and with his side going through a period of poor form.

For Kane it will be a chance to show why he left Tottenham Hotspur, as he seeks to to win the most prestigious trophy in the European game.

Ahead of that match, Kane has been speaking to Marca in his role as a new ambassador for Skechers.

One of the questions from the Spanish newspaper was probing whether he partially regrets leaving Tottenham before he broke Alan Shearer’s record for Premier League goals.

Kane insisted that’s not the case: “All the decisions I made in my career were to improve, including leaving the Premier League. In that sense, I am happy to have come to Munich to continue progressing. 

“There will always be talk about the scoring record but my goal is to continue playing to win trophies with my club and that is why I signed for Bayern. In football ‘never say never’, but now I am focused only on Germany and not on the Premier.”

Thursday saw the revelation that Tottenham have a buyback clause, and perhaps that’s somewhere at the back of Kane’s mind for the future.

Given he was speaking to Marca, a chunk of the questions put to Kane were about Jude Bellingham.

Asked whether he’s been surprised by Bellingham’s quick impact at Real Madrid, the former Tottenham captain replied: “I don’t think it’s a surprise. Obviously, I’ve been able to work with Jude for a long time and we know he’s a fantastic player. He made a fantastic World Cup. Although he is very young, he has great maturity. He’s very focused, so he doesn’t surprise me.

“He’s a brilliant player, he’s full of confidence at the moment and has amazing ability, so adding more goals to his CV is the perfect solution for him. I am very happy for him and that he is enjoying himself in Madrid. He will want to continue with that dynamic the rest of the season. It’s fantastic to have him in our team and, obviously, being so young, he is going to be the future of our team and probably of Real Madrid as well, so it is a pleasure to see him.”

And for a bit of boot sponsor PR: “I have already scored a few and I hope that many people around the world will see my goals with these boots so they can try Skechers for themselves. They are very comfortable and have great technology.”
