Key statements from Kane & Dreesen
“It’s been an incredible experience so far. Obviously there’s a lot going on, a lot of new faces, new surroundings, but I mean, the reception that me and my family have got since we’ve been here, the reception at the game last night was just magical, so I’m really excited to be here, and I just can’t wait to kind of settle down and get to work.”
Dreesen on the transfer process
"It was a long process, we needed to be patient. I'm very happy that Harry’s here. Of course, I would have wished for a better start yesterday in the Supercup. But anyone who's seen the fans at the stadium, in the city, and the people at Säbener Straße on Friday night will know: Munich and FC Bayern are really happy about Harry."
Kane on the reasons for his move
"I've always said in my career I wanted to keep improving, keep pushing myself to my limits. I want to be playing in the Champions League and winning titles, so coming to Bayern Munich, one of the biggest clubs in the world, gives me that opportunity. It was clear it was a difficult decision. I was at Tottenham for 19 years and the club is in my heart. But I felt that now is the right time."
Dreesen on the significance of the transfer
"We've never doubted Harry, he's always kept his word. We're proud that he decided to join us. That shows that he believes we can win titles and compete on the European stage. International stars are good for the Bundesliga."
Kane on his targets at FC Bayern
"I'll try to settle in here as quickly as possible and help the team as much as I can. The team has fantastic players – now we have to see that we can get on track quickly. That's also the expectation of FC Bayern. I'll try to help that happen. But we don't take anything for granted."
Dreesen on the scope of the transfer
"100 million is not the new normal. The FC Bayern DNA is that we will invest heavily when we believe it’s right. We have spent an appropriate amount here."
