Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to claims that have emerged about Harry Kane from their game against Burnley in midweek.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men managed to claim victory at Turf Moor in the Carabao Cup, a goal from Lucas Moura in the second-half enough to see them through. However, despite the victory, things weren’t all smooth sailing for Tottenham on the night with not everyone seeming to put in as much effort as they could.
According to a report from Football.London, Spurs captain on the night Kane was confronted by teammate Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for some of his lack of defensive work, stating that “Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was fuming with Kane at one point late on as the striker stood off Ben Mee on the halfway line rather than pressing the Burnley man.
“The Dane quite rightly screamed at his teammate to press and he could be seen frantically waving his hands in a forward motion to get the England man to put pressure on the hosts at a time when they were looking to force an equaliser.”
This isn’t the first time that Kane has been accused of forgoing his defensive duties, with Graeme Souness slamming him for the role he played in Michail Antonio’s winner for West Ham this past weekend, with some accusing him of not being interested in the club anymore following his failed move to Manchester City this summer.
And when news of the incident was relayed on the Tottenham Hotspur – Football.London Facebook page, there were a number of fans who turned on the England skipper, with some also using it as a chance to accuse him of not having any interest in the side:
Should Spurs look to sell Kane?
It looks as if the relationship between Kane and the fans certainly has changed from the early days where he was lauded by everyone at the club, whether or not it can be totally repaired though is a different matter.
