European football: Kane maintains communication with Bayern despite the fact that the transfer "wasn't easy"


The visitors surprised Bayern by scoring a goal in the 35th minute. Müller relinquished control, allowing Gladbach to swiftly execute a three-pass manoeuvre, resulting in Nico Elvedi successfully outplaying Manuel Neuer.

Bayern, who had failed to convert several opportunities from Harry Kane and Leroy Sane, equalised just before halftime thanks to the young Aleksandar Pavlovic, who scored for the second consecutive week.

The hosts achieved a complete comeback in the 70th minute when Kane scored a header from a short distance after an error by the Gladbach custodian. The England captain, who holds the title of the Bundesliga's most expensive acquisition after his transfer from Tottenham Hotspur for a staggering €100m (£85m), has successfully scored 24 goals in Bayern's 20 league matches this season.

Kane has also discussed his arduous period after relocating to Germany. "The initial four or five months of staying in the hotel and being separated from my family were challenging," he said. "The situation was undoubtedly challenging, but I felt a sense of pride in my ability to perform on the pitch despite the difficulties."

Currently, however, Kane and his family have become more established. "We had a pleasant winter break, and everyone returned with me. The children are attending school, and we have acquired the house," he said. Gradually, the sense of familiarity and belonging in this place intensifies with each passing month. You get acquainted with other parents at the school, while my spouse forms connections with new acquaintances.

Simultaneously, you begin to encounter unfamiliar faces and witness novel experiences. The individuals, including the supporters and the club, have made me feel welcome. Thus far, I have nothing but positive feedback for everyone involved.

Additionally, he attends German classes every week, often at least once or twice. "I am eager to assimilate and consider language acquisition crucial. I am willing to make an effort," he said. "The Bayern fans are exceptional; I frequently hear them enthusiastically singing numerous songs during the matches."

Matthijs de Ligt scored a header to secure the victory, while Bayern defender Alphonso Davies sustained an injury and had to leave the field towards the match's conclusion.

Nathan Tella scored goals in both halves, leading Bayer Leverkusen to a decisive 2-0 win over Darmstadt. In the 33rd minute, Leverkusen took the lead when Alejandro Grimaldo skillfully curved a cross from the left side to the far post, where the unmarked Tella headed the ball into the net.

The visitors failed to capitalize on many scoring opportunities, including one for new acquisition Borja Iglesias, and should have scored at least one further goal in the first half. Tella, the Nigerian football player, secured the win in the 52nd minute by powerfully shooting the ball into the net after receiving a pass from Florian Wirtz. This was his fourth goal in the league.

Barcelona emerged victorious with a 3-1 win over Alavés in La Liga, courtesy of goals scored by Robert Lewandowski, Ilkay Gündogan, and substitute Vitor Roque. However, Roque's dismissal for receiving a second yellow card diminished his contribution.

Barcelona took the lead using a penetrating pass from Gündogan to Lewandowski, who skillfully lifted the ball over custodian Antonio Sivera to secure his ninth goal.

Gündogan scored early in the second half with a superb left-footed shot off Pedri’s feed, extending Barcelona's advantage.

Alavés swiftly initiated a counterattack only two minutes later, after a breakaway by Álex Sola. Sola sent a cross to Samu Omorodion, who skillfully headed the ball into the net. However, Barcelona extended their advantage with the help of Roque, who substituted Gündogan in the 63rd minute.

Subsequently, the Brazilian player was shown a red card only nine minutes after earning two yellow cards: one for elbowing Nahuel Tenaglia and another for committing a foul on Rafa Marín.

Barcelona now holds the third position in the standings with a total of 50 points, seven points less than the current leader, Real Madrid. Real Madrid will be playing against Atlético Madrid on Sunday.

Girona, who are in second place, could not score any goals in their home match against Real Sociedad, resulting in a tie. As a result, they are now one point behind Real Madrid.

Girona believed they had scored first after 24 minutes, but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) intervened and nullified Yangel Herrera's goal due to an offside position. Sociedad, now in sixth position, had Mikel Oyarzabal's attempt disallowed due to an offside ruling.

In his first appearance for Ajax, Jordan Henderson played the whole 90 minutes of the match against PSV Eindhoven, who are currently leading the Eredivisie without a loss. The match ended in a 1-1 tie.

Gareth Southgate, the manager of the England national team, saw the match from the spectator area at the Johan Cruyff Arena. The 33-year-old ex-captain of Liverpool, who joined Ajax last month after playing for Saudi side Al-Ettifaq, was warmly greeted by the crowd and seemed at ease in his position in the Ajax midfield.

Steven Berghuis scored the first goal for Ajax after 19 minutes, but Luuk de Jong, who scored 10 minutes before half-time, helped PSV equalize.

PSV now has a 13-point advantage over Feyenoord, who are in second place. Feyenoord's next match is scheduled for Sunday. Ajax is currently in fifth place, behind PSV by 21 points.

Luka Jovic's timely strike secured Milan a 3-2 victory against Frosinone, enabling Stefano Pioli's team to remain within close reach of Serie A's leading duo, Internazionale and Juventus. Milan, now in third place with 49 points, is behind Inter by five points and second-placed Juventus by four points. The next match between Inter and Juventus at the San Siro on Sunday will not change the fact that Inter still have one more game to play than Milan.

Olivier Giroud scored the first goal in the 17th minute, but Matías Soulé and Luca Mazzitelli secured a 2-1 advantage for Frosinone by the middle of the second half. Matteo Gabbia quickly equalized, and Luka Jovic, who entered the game as a substitute, secured the victory for Milan with a goal from a loose ball in the penalty area only one minute after replacing Christian Pulisic.
