    Harry Kane insists he’ll never regret leaving Tottenham – even if his former club win the Premier League under Ange Postecoglou.

    While Kane is enjoying life in Germany, there might be some jealousy to see his former club flying high in the Premier League under their new Aussie boss. But he actually wants to see them keep it up and win the title. There won’t be any regret if they do and he’s over in Germany winning the Bundesliga.

    “I have made it clear my whole career I am a Tottenham fan and I would love to see Tottenham do well,” said Kane. “There is no other team in the Premier League I would want to win than Tottenham.

    “To experience a new league, if I got to 40 and I was retired and I looked back and never played in another league I would have always wondered what it would have been like. So now I am here, I am excited and it will always be a decision I never regret.”

    Kane has scored 59 goals for England to be the nation’s record goalscorer while he also holds the record at 280 goals with Spurs. It is that record which earned him the £86m move to Bayern in the summer but he believes he’s yet to hit his peak. The England captain believes he’s got plenty of time yet and he can emulate the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski and Zlatan Ibrahimovic by still plundering goals well into his 30s.

    “There is definitely room for improvement,” he said. “I have been coming to a stage over the last year or two when it has been coming together, having the experience, knowing your body, knowing the way you want to play, playing in high-pressure games.

    “When you look at a lot of the top-level players – Ronaldos, Messis, Lewandowskis, Ibrahimovich – they have almost got better as they hit 30. In a lot of sports that happens as well. Everything is maybe settled in your personal life.

    “You have got family, you have got kids – so that side is all settled. You are comfortable with your body, you are comfortable mentally where you are at and that just allows you to focus on the football.

    “The perception in sport or football in general is you hit 30 and people start to think the end. But the way I am looking at it is that I almost have the second half of my career.

    “I played in the first team at Spurs from 20 or 21 so I have had nine or 10 years at the highest level and I am hoping for another eight or nine years at the highest level again. It all depends.

    “You see some players who want to have a different change or challenge so I would never be able to tell you what I will do but at the moment, I just want to keep playing. I think, with everything, with recovery, sports science and the way the game has been and adapted, it has allowed players to play for longer. We may have a bit more information over what the players had in the past.

    “But when you look at the players you said [Ronaldo, Messi and Lewandowski]. That makes me believe and shows it is possible to play until your late thirties and that is what I am planning to do.”
