Alan Shearer shared his thoughts on Harry Kane’s predicament at Bayern Munich, as the Bundesliga powerhouse faces unexpected challenges in their quest for a 12th consecutive title.
During the conversation with host Gary Lineker, Shearer, 53, couldn’t help but reflect on the surprising turn of events in the German top-flight, where Bayern Munich currently find themselves five points behind Bayer Leverkusen.
“I’m thinking about Harry Kane again. We shouldn’t laugh at the situation, but 11 consecutive titles, and he goes there – can you imagine him not winning the title? There is a real possibility now,” Shearer remarked, addressing the unexpected struggle Bayern Munich is facing this season.
When Harry Kane sealed an £86 million move to Bayern Munich in August 2023, many presumed that the Bundesliga title was almost guaranteed for the English international. The German giants had secured the last 11 Bundesliga titles in a row, making them the dominant force in the league.
Despite Kane’s remarkable individual performance, having scored 28 goals and provided eight assists in 28 appearances this season, Bayern Munich’s unexpected slip has put the coveted title in jeopardy.
Shearer acknowledged the irony of Kane, who has yet to win any silverware throughout his career, facing the possibility of missing out on the Bundesliga title in his debut season at the Allianz Arena.
“Whatever you think of the 30-year-old, it would be hard not to feel sorry for him if Bayern Munich end up missing out on the Bundesliga title,” Shearer commented, highlighting the empathy many may have for Kane in this unforeseen situation.
