Harry Kane makes history with his latest Bayern Munich Bundesliga hat-trick

Harry Kane makes history with his latest Bayern Munich Bundesliga hat-trick

The England captain has enjoyed a record-breaking debut campaign at Bayern.

Harry Kane certainly hit the ground running when he made the switch last year from Tottenham Hotspur to Bayern Munich - and he has made history with his latest personal achievement at the German giants.

The 30-year-old finally departed Spurs last year after he turned down the opportunity to pen fresh terms at the North London club and it meant he would have been able to leave for nothing this summer.

With fewer than 12 months remaining on the contract of their prized asset, Spurs opted to cash in and received an initial €100m transfer fee plus a potential extra €10m in add-ons for the striker from Bayern.

Any question marks there may have been over how Kane would fare outside the Premier League have been emphatically answered by the England captain with a remarkable first season at the Allianz Arena.

Though Bayern trail Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen by seven points in the Bundesliga table, Kane hit three goals as the Bavarian club thrashed Mainz 8-1 in their latest game.

Kane scored twice in the first half along with Leon Goretzka, with Nadiem Amiri replying for Mainz.

After the break, Thomas Muller, Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry all found the back of the net before Kane bagged his third of the clash, with Goretzka grabbing his second to complete the rout.

After the game, Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel said: "I believe Harry can do everything.

“He does what he has always done throughout his career. He scores, he’s a role model, he’s a great example.”

This was Kane's fourth hat-trick in a Bayern shirt in the Bundesliga, though according to a bizarre rule in Germany, the Three Lions skipper is yet to officially do so owing to the very strict regulations surrounding what must be done in that country for it to officially be a hat-trick.

As far as most people's view goes, however, this was Kane's fourth hat-trick of the season and followed earlier trios against VfL Bochum, Borussia Dortmund and Darmstadt.

In doing so, Kane made history by becoming the first player to score four Bundesliga hat-tricks in their first season in the competition.

Legendary striker Gerd Muller holds the record for the greatest number of hat-tricks in the Bundesliga with 32 overall, as well as the most in one season with six.

Robert Lewandowski also boasts the Bundesliga goal record for the most in one season, with 41 strikes for Bayern in the 2020/21 campaign.

But with 11 games to go, you probably wouldn't bet against Kane matching or beating both of Muller's or Lewandowski's individual season achievements before the campaign comes to an end.
