Kane still wins a trophy with Bayern Munich

There is a curse on Harry Kane when it comes to winning team trophies. The English striker has yet to win any in that regard, even after his move to Bayern Munich. On a personal level, however, the Englishman did manage to achieve some success with Der Rekordmeister.

The forward, along with Kylian Mbappé, became the top scorer of the past Champions League season.

The total of eight goals is relatively low: only Raúl González (2001/02) scored fewer this century with seven. Ruud van Nistelrooij (2004/05), Cristiano Ronaldo (2007/08), and Lionel Messi (2009/10) also once topped the scoring charts with 'just' eight goals this century.

Mbappé and Kane scored two more goals than their closest challengers Erling Haaland (Manchester City), Antoine Griezmann (Atlético Madrid), and Vinícius Júnior (Real Madrid). Although the Brazilian scored in the final, he would have needed to score at least three goals at Wembley to match Kane and Mbappé.

Kane has experienced personal successes before: he was the Premier League's top scorer three times and achieved the same in his first Bundesliga season with 36 goals, also claiming the Golden Boot. This achievement marks another milestone in Kane's career, showcasing his consistent ability to find the back of the net, even when team trophies have eluded him. His performance has been a bright spot for Bayern Munich, highlighting his value and impact since joining the club.

Mbappé, who scored five of his goals in the knockout stages, was also the top scorer in Ligue 1. This season further solidifies Mbappé's reputation as one of the top forwards in world football, with his crucial goals in the Champions League knockout rounds underscoring his ability to perform under pressure. His impending move to Real Madrid is highly anticipated, with fans and pundits alike eager to see how he will adapt to the team and contribute to their quest for more titles. The official announcement of his transfer is expected early next week, adding another chapter to his already illustrious career.

Both players have demonstrated remarkable skill and consistency, making significant impacts in their respective leagues and the Champions League. Their performances this season have not only earned them individual accolades but also placed them at the forefront of discussions about the best players in the world. As they continue to develop and achieve, the football world watches with great interest, anticipating more spectacular moments and records from these two outstanding athletes.
