Harry Kane is without question one of the finest strikers in world football.
Despite being just 26, the Englishman already has 136 Premier League goals to his name, with many tipping the Tottenham star to one day break Alan Shearer’s record haul of 260.
One of Kane’s goals in 2019/20 – of which he currently has 11 in 20 games – came against Arsenal, one of his favourite teams to strike against.
However, come the end of the game no one was talking about Kane’s penalty or Arsenal coming from two goals down to draw 2-2.
Everyone was instead focused on Kane’s ‘dive’ in the final minutes of the game and amazingly, Geoff Shreeves made the England captain re-watch the incident during his post-match interview.
It made for some absolute gold on Sky Sports and you can watch one of the funniest moments of the 2019/20 season so far below.
So awkward. Kane initially says “I’ll have to watch it back” when asked whether he believed it was a penalty, but little did he know Shreeves was prepared in such a manner.
After re-watching, the Spurs striker says: “I think he makes a tired tackle. I think if I’m on the halfway I get it but when you’re in the box, it’s 50/50.”
Sorry Harry, but it looks like a dive to us.
Kane has made the headlines in recent days despite the world of football coming to a standstill.
Certain reports have stated that Tottenham and Daniel Levy would be prepared to offload the English striker for around £200m during the next transfer window.
However, given his injury woes during the 2019/20 season – and the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic – no team in the world is likely to meet Spurs’ valuation.
But the BBC now write that Spurs will not look to offload Kane, despite the striker previously stating that he wouldn’t stay at the club “just for the sake of it”.
