  • Kane moves to Bayern
  • Struggles with the language
  • Reveals why he has not progressed.

WHAT HAPPENED? The official Bundesliga Instagram have posted a video of Kane in his new Bayern Munich threads, as they throw quickfire football-related German words at the former Spurs man to test his knowledge of the language since arriving for £100 million ($122m) back in August. The England captain only manages a score of two out of five, correctly guessing 'offside' and 'goal'.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Speaking earlier in September, Kane admitted his German "hasn't come along" due to his tutor being away during the start of his career in the Bundesliga. “It hasn’t really come along any further yet, to be honest,” he said.

“I’m due to start lessons when I get back, the teacher was away for a little while. I’m fully open to trying to learn the language. I’ve been told it is extremely tough, but I want to take in the culture as much as possible and, even if I get a word here and there, that would be nice."
