Harry Kane says Bayern Munich “will never give up” after the England captain scored a stoppage-time winner against RB Leipzig to get the German giants back to winning ways.

Kane placed in a brilliant strike late on after also opening the scoring with a left-footed finish, before Benjamin Sesko scored for Leipzig.

The win was their first in three league games and keeps them eight points behind leaders Leverkusen.

“We have to push them,” said Kane.

“We need to keep doing what we’re doing. It was good to win this game and we need to go on a run until the end of the year.”

Kane has now scored 27 Bundesliga goals and 31 in all competitions since joining from Spurs in the summer.

He added: “We’ll never give up, we’ll never stop.”

Bayern remain second in the Bundesliga, eight points behind the unbeaten Bayer Leverkusen.

The win comes after Bayern this week confirmed head coach Thomas Tuchel will leave at the end of the season.

Bayern have been German champions in each of the past 11 seasons but face the possibility of ending the campaign without a trophy.

They lost in the German Super Cup in August, then went out of the German Cup in the second round to third-tier Saarbrucken in November.

Tuchel’s side lost 3-0 at Leverkusen on 10 February and 3-2 at Bochum last weekend. They were also beaten 1-0 by Lazio in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie in midweek.

Kane’s remarkable scoring continues

Kane is currently the top scorer in the Bundesliga, moving nine clear of Stuttgart‘s Serhou Guirassy with this double.

He has also scored six more goals than any player in Europe’s top five leagues, with Paris St-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe next on 21.

Kane has already become the highest-scoring Englishman in a Bundesliga season, surpassing Kevin Keegan and Jadon Sancho.

His goal against Bochum last Saturday saw him become the quickest to reach 25 Bundesliga goals in one season, doing so in 22 games to beat the previous best mark of 25 by former Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. He also overtook Luca Toni’s Bayern record of 25 goals in a debut season.

However, the 30-year-old still has some way to go to break the Bundesliga record – 41 goals by former Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski in 2020-21.

Kane has 11 league games left this season and needs 14 goals to equal the tally.

He could also break his own top-scoring season, which was 41 goals in 48 games for Tottenham in 2017-18.
