Do you need German lessons, Harry? The England captain realizes he needs to learn the lingo as he helplessly watches his teammates’ heated penalty debate with the referee at his Bayern debut.
Harry Kane’s Bayern Munich debut did not go according to plan as his new team crashed out to RB Leipzig 3-0 in the German Super Cup.
The England captain only completed his £100m transfer to the Bundesliga giants from Tottenham on Saturday morning, but was appointed to the bench by Thomas Tuchel just hours later.

There have been so many great moments and special memories, memories that I will treasure forever. I felt it was time to go. I didn’t want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved conversations about the future.
