Harry Kane: The Bayern Munich and England striker's Bundesliga career in numbers


Harry Kane has backed up the hype since his move to Bayern Munich from the English Premier League. bundesliga.com crunches the numbers behind the England captain's electric first season in Bayern colours...

3 - The 30-year-old is just the third Englishman to play for Bayern, following in the footsteps of Owen Hargreaves and Omar Richards. 

4 - The number of hat-tricks Kane scored in the Bundesliga in his first season - a record. The former Tottenham Hotspur forward also became just the fourth England player to score a hat-trick in the German top flight after Kevin Keegan, Tony Woodcock and Jadon Sanchoagainst Bochum during Matchday 5, before repeating that feat again versus Darmstadt, Dortmund and Mainz.
