Thomas Tuchel believes Harry Kane is capable of breaking Robert Lewandowski’s record for the most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season.

The Polish striker bagged an incredible 41 for Bayern Munich in the 2020/21 season, surpassing the previous record of 40 which was set by the legendary Gerd Müller in 1971/72.

Kane has already managed 22 goals in his 16 Bundesliga appearances this term, at a rate of just under 1.4 goals per game.

And should the England captain continue finding the back of the net with that frequency, Kane will smash Lewandowski’s record which was previously believed to be untouchable.

Kane is already faring marginally better than Lewandowski’s record-breaking season, with the now-Barcelona forward having managed 22 goals in 17 games – one match more than it took Bayern’s current number nine to reach that tally.

‘It is in danger. No one could ever believe that would be in danger, but it is in danger,’ Tuchel told ESPN.

‘We need a bit of luck. We need the team to keep going, Harry needs to be fit, and then we see what’s coming… I clearly think that for Harry there are no limits.’

Kane has managed three hat-tricks already for the Bavarians this season, including back-to-back against Darmstadt and Borussia Dortmund.

Alongside his 22 goals, Kane has also provided five assists for his teammates this term, with his 27 goal involvements at this stage of the season the highest ever recorded in the Bundesliga since detailed data collection began in 1992/93.

‘It’s just a gift, honestly, to be his coach,’ Tuchel added.

‘I feel very privileged. He’s super humble. He’s the first out there on the pitch every single day.

‘What you ever ask of him he will do it. He is that huge personality that is so humble and then becomes a a shark – a shark on the field, because he is up for goals, he’s up for winning.’

‘He does it on an everyday basis. He does not only score on a daily basis. He trains well. He does what is needed. He shows his quality. He calms everyone down around him, makes everyone better by his pure presence.

‘It’s the highest level. Just can just put it like this as a human being, but also as a football highest level.

Alongside his Bundesliga goalscoring exploits, Kane has also bagged four goals in the Champions League as Bayern finished top of Group A.
