Life after Harry Kane: Tottenham's New Era and The Striker's German Adventure

When Harry Kane traded Tottenham for Bayern Munich, the Spurs' faithful braced for a tough season ahead. Losing a record goalscorer and one of the world's premier strikers would leave any club reeling. However, under the tutelage of new manager Ange Postecoglou, Tottenham has adapted by ushering Heung-min Son into the centre-forward role, a shift that has led to nine goals in the first 14 games.

Postecoglou's Impressive Start

Despite recent setbacks, Tottenham finds itself fifth in the Premier League. Postecoglou's reign has kicked off with a bang, securing a record for the best start to any manager's Premier League tenure. Under his leadership, the team's overall proficiency has slightly improved compared to the previous season under Antonio Conte, with one additional goal scored in the same number of games and a better record in shots and big chances created.

Life post-Kane has seen Son rise to the challenge, while the emergence of Dejan Kulusevski in an attacking midfield role has added more firepower. Kulusevski, a product of Stockholm's IF Brommapojkarna's renowned youth academy, has impressed with his work rate and talent. His performances against Chelsea and Manchester City have marked him as one to watch. Nonetheless, Tottenham's recent five-game winless run in the Premier League has raised some concerns.

Kane's Success at Bayern Munich

While Spurs adjust to life without Kane, the striker himself has thrived in his new German home. Kane has fired home 18 goals in 12 league games, showcasing his unrelenting scoring prowess. However, his ambition to win trophies in Germany may prove challenging as, despite his personal success, Bayern Munich is not currently leading the Bundesliga, with Bayer Leverkusen occupying the top spot.
