Africa-Press – Lesotho. Bayern Munich striker Harry Kane, one of the most important goal scorers in English football gifted to world football, has failed to win a trophy during his career despite his impressive and consistent individual performances every season.

Kane, who transferred to German powerhouse, Bayern Munich, after years without a trophy at his boyhood club, Tottenham, failed to end his longing in the 14th season of his professional career.

Bayern Munich end season without any trophy after 12 years

Bayern Munich were eliminated from all four competitions this season.

The Bavarians, who lost 3 – 0 to Leipzig in the German Super Cup at the beginning of the season, were eliminated in a 2 – 1 loss in the second round of the German Cup to a 3. Liga team, Saarbrucken.

Bayern Munich remained 15 points behind this season’s undefeated team Bayer Leverkusen, which declared their 2023-24 season championship in the German Bundesliga on April 14.

Most recently, Bayern were eliminated by Spanish powerhouse, Real Madrid, in the UEFA Champions League semifinals with a 4 – 3 aggregate on Wednesday.

Bayern Munich, the most successful team in German football history, will finish the season without a trophy for the first time in 12 years.

Despite it all, Kane had a successful individual performance, scoring 44 goals in 45 matches for Bayern Munich.

Tottenham era

Kane signed a contract with English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in 2010, after joining the club in 2004.

The star attacker made a name among the most influential strikers in the world of football with 280 goals in 435 appearances for Tottenham.

Kane, who lost three cup finals for Tottenham, failed to break Tottenham’s trophy drought since their 2008 English League Cup victory, despite his impressive performances.

Tottenham lost two English League Cup finals; first to Chelsea with a 2 – 0 defeat in the 2014-2015 season and to Manchester City with a 1 – 0 loss in the 2020 – 2021 season.

The Spurs, which lost the final of the 2018 – 2019 season in the UEFA Champions League to Liverpool, finished the 2016 – 2017 season in the second spot in the Premier League.

No trophy with England as well

Kane, the top scorer of the England National Football Team with 62 goals in 89 matches, could not secure any titles with the national team.

England, who lost to Italy in the final of the 2020 European Championship, finished the UEFA Nations League third in the 2018 – 2019 season.

Kane on verge of becoming top scorer for 6th time

Kane, the current top scorer in the Bundesliga, is counting days when he becomes the top scorer of the competition for the sixth time in his career.

The experienced player, who became the top scorer in the English Premier League in the 2015 – 2016, 2016 – 2017 and 2020 – 2021 seasons, was also the top scorer in the 2018 FIFA World Cup and 2020 European Football Championship Qualifiers.

The English footballer, who has scored 36 goals in the league ahead of Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy’s 25 goals, is the closest to becoming the Bundesliga’s top scorer this season.

If Kane scores five more goals in the last two matches of the season, he will equal Robert Lewandowski’s record of 41 goals in 29 matches in the 2020 – 2021 season, the most in a season in Bundesliga‚Äôs history.
