The strict clothing rule Harry Kane must follow at Bayern Munich, three players have been fined for it

Harry Kane will have to follow a strict clothing rule while at Bayern Munich.

Since his £100million move from Spurs, Kane has seamlessly taken to German football. The England captain became only the third player in Bayern Munich history to net three goals in his first two Bundesliga games.

Furthermore, off the pitch, Kane has impressed local media by using a Bavarian dialect in his opening press conference, while ha has also committed to learning German.

But with the striker now plying his trade at one of the biggest and most scrutinised clubs in world football, there are several rules he must now abide by.


Indeed, one clothing rule Bayern players must follow is that they must don Adidas clothing at official events.

According to a Mail Online report players are contracted to wear Adidas clothing at all official club events, with football shoes being the only exception to the rule.

The rule is strictly enforced, with Mario Gotze, Mario Gomez and Jan Kirchhoff having all been fined by Bayern for wearing Nike clothes rather than kit from club sponsors back in 2013.

Upon signing for Bayern from Borussia Dortmund and Mainz respectively Gotze and Kirchhoff, both turned up to their presentation wearing t-shirts with big Nike logos on them.



Then, Gomez attended a training camp in Trentino wearing a Nike hat after the club had offered their apologies to Adidas.

Bayern were subsequently forced to release a statement which said: “The pictures from today's press conference with Mario Gotze have negatively surprised us.

“Contractually it is not permissible because it is an official function of Adidas partner Bayern Munich. We have already discussed with Bayern Munich.”


The amount they were each fined was never disclosed, but the trio all donated the money to flood victims in Germany after the country was hit by major flooding.

Speaking on the reason behind his move to Bayern, Kane told the Guardian: “There’s a lot of talk about trophies but that wasn’t the only reason I went to Bayern Munich.

“I needed to be playing at the highest level if I ultimately wanted to improve.

“If I want to be around the best strikers and best players in the world then I need to be playing in the Champions League and fighting for titles. Last season went well for me personally, but not for Spurs as a team. It was time to take another step.”
