The curse of Kane: Bad luck or Bayern’s problem ?

This club is defined by its winning mentality. It feels very good to be here.” Those were Harry Kane’s words upon his arrival. But Bayern Munich lost the Super Cup to Leipzig that evening and the £100m signing is now set to go without a trophy in his first season.

Beaten by third-tier opposition in the DFB-Pokal, eight points adrift of Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, perhaps their best remaining hope of silverware is in the Champions League – and they have lost the first leg of their last-16 tie against Lazio in that.

Harry Kane’s trophy misses

2015 – League Cup runner-up with Tottenham

2017 – Premier League runner-up with Tottenham

2019 – Champions League runner-up with Tottenham

2021 – League Cup runner-up with Tottenham

2021 – European Championship runner-up with England

2023 – German Super Cup with Bayern Munich


For Kane, 30, he must now contemplate the unthinkable. Bayern were supposed to be a sure thing. But having already lost European finals with Tottenham and England as well as finishing runner-up in the Premier League, the striker’s wait to be a winner continues.


Kane was culpable against Bochum as Bayern plunged to a third defeat in a row for the first time in nine years. He squandered a glorious opportunity to double the lead in the first half and then failed to salvage a draw with a header in stoppage-time
