Harry Kane must follow Bayern Munich rule which players have been fined for

After departing Tottenham Hotspur this summer to join Bayern Munich, England skipper Harry Kane has enjoyed a fine start to life in Germany.

So far, the 30-year-old has bagged three goals in three Bundesliga games, showing he of course needs no time to adapt to a new league after tearing up the Premier League season after season.

However, off the field, there are some new rules Kane now has to adhere to after joining Bayern Munich, primarily due to their commercial partnerships.

All Bayern Munich players are given a company Audi, who own just shy of 9% of the German side, a tradition that first started back in 2002. Players are expect to turn up to training in their company car, as well as other club related activities.

And Kane also now has to adhere to a strict clothing rule too, which has seen three former Bayern Munich players fined in the past. Due to their relationship with Adidas, who also own a stake in the club like Audi, Bayern Munich players must wear their clothing at team related events.

The only exception to this rule is when it comes to football boots, with players allowed to wear whatever they like on their feet for games – something which should come as a relief to Kane who recently signed a bumper deal with Skechers, having previously been a Nike athlete.

And should he fail to comply with the Adidas rule, he could find himself fined, just like former Bayern Munich star's Mario Gotze, Mario Gomez and Jan Kirchhoff all were.

At their unveilings after signing for Bayern from Dortmund and Mainz respectively, Gotze and Kirchoff both wore Nike shirts. And that even prompted Bayern to have to make a formal statement following Gotze's arrival.

“The pictures from today's press conference with Mario Gotze have negatively surprised us," the statement read. "Contractually it is not permissible because it is an official function of Adidas partner Bayern Munich. We have already discussed with Bayern Munich."

Gomez on the other hand was fined by the club after he turned up to training wearing a Nike hat.
