Harry Kane says he is delighted for Tottenham fans amid his former club’s impressive start to the season under Ange Postecoglou.
The England captain left the north London club last month, signing for German champions Bayern Munich in a deal that could rise to £100million as he looks to end his its long wait for major silverware.
Kane has made a promising start to life in Bavaria, scoring four goals in his first five games. And while he is already impressing in the Bundesliga, the 30-year-old is blown away by his former team’s start to the Premier League campaign.
Spurs sit in a healthy second place, two points behind leaders Manchester City ahead of this weekend’s highly anticipated north London derby against Arsenal and Kane admits he is keeping an eye on his former team-mates.
“As far as Tottenham are concerned, it’s a fantastic start,” he told reporters on Tuesday. “I always watch them. I think I will always keep an eye on Tottenham for the rest of my life.
“I’m really happy to see the team play the way they do and of course to see their fans happy too, it’s a great feeling.
“I’m sure they’ll be happy to continue this momentum.” They have a huge game coming up so yeah, for sure, I’ll see how they do over the course of the season.
Kane was speaking ahead of his Champions League debut for Bayern Munich against familiar opposition in Manchester United on Wednesday, live on talkSPORT.
The striker was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, but United were left out of the deal and turned their attention to Rasmus Hojlund, who agreed a £72 million deal.
Kane will be hoping to improve his goalscoring record against the Red Devils after scoring just five times against them in his career.

And judging by United’s poor defensive form this season, Kane will relish the opportunity to open his European account at the six-time competition winners.
Erik ten Hag’s side have the third worst defensive record with ten goals scored in just five league matches, including six in their last two outings.
