Bayern Munich fans bragged that they had scored a major victory over their English football rivals as they eagerly awaited Harry Kane’s debut.

The striker is set to make his bow in Bayern colours tonight with excited fans of the team gushing that they had ‘stolen’ the English captain from under English noses. 

Kane will start on the bench against German rivals RB Leipzig in the Supercup, a match that could earn him his first silverware with the club if they win. 

Andy Tremer, 43 who was attending the match with his father Dieter said; ‘England and Germany is one of the greatest football rivalries in the world and I can’t believe the England captain is here.

‘It’s wonderful for the whole of Germany not just Bayern Munich. We’re all excited to see Kane and feel honoured that his home is going to be here.’

Dieter added: ‘In 1966 the ball wasn’t over the line and it cost us the World Cup final. Now the England captain is playing in Germany. Perhaps that’s a bit of payback because Kane is now an honorary German.’ 

Season ticket holder Hans, who was attending the match with friends cried: ‘It’s 1-0 to Germany. Kane is a great player and what makes it sweeter is that we’ve stolen England’s captain from them.’

Fans chanted Kane’s name ahead of the match at the Allianz Arena against RB Leipzig in the German Super Cup. 

The 72,000 capacity stadium was sold out with fans frantically buying tickets in the run up to Kane’s transfer.

Christian Koll who was attending the match with his daughter Leonie said; ‘This feels like a victory for Germany and the Bundesliga. 

‘All of Germany is excited by Kane’s signing. It shows how superior our football is’

Leonie added: ‘I don’t really get caught up in the German-English rivalry thing but on this occasion even I had to smile.

‘Bayern fans are loving it because they feel as if they’ve got one over on the English.’
