Bayern Munich head coach Niko Kovac and winger Serge Gnabry spoke on Monday, a day ahead of the German club's UEFA Champions League Group B match against Tottenham Hotspur.

Bayern opened their Champions League campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade, while Tottenham surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Olympiacos.

Kovac said those results mean that the pressure is more on Tottenham to get a positive result at home on Tuesday, and also spoke in glowing terms about striker Harry Kane, as the Bayern head coach rated the England international and Robert Lewandowski among the top forwards in the world.

Bayern winger Serge Gnabry revealed that he is solely motivated by securing all three points at Tottenham, but did admit that his previous playing days at London rivals Arsenal were "in my mind".
