The Premier League have awarded the goal to him and he is now on 25 goals as the race for the Good Boot between him and Mohamed Salah heats up.

It's safe to say that most people now have absolutely no respect for Harry Kane. He set aside team spirit and honesty for the selfish potential greater good of himself by lying and thus cheating. No class,” a Twitter user wrote.


Roberto Firmino has, this season, taken to scoring ‘ No Look ‘ goals .... Harry Kane has decided to go one better and he’s started scoring ‘ No Touch ‘ goals,” another person wrote.



Reminder that Harry Kane is the only member of the PL100 club to have never won a trophy. He’ll steal goals off his teammates but can’t deliver when the pressure is on. Failed for Spurs in big moments, failed for England. Beta mentality. Nation behind Salah for the boot now,” another user said.

Amidst the trolling on social media, Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Kane has been hurt and surprised by the ridicule he has received for claiming the goal.

Sometimes it is a small or simple thing and it becomes bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and you cannot stop it. That is what has happened. He is going to learn a lot from this,” Pochettino said.

He never thought that this situation was going to go on to such big things when he was so certain he touched the ball.

“It is normal that he is a bit disappointed because, of course, Harry Kane and all of our players have Twitter, Instagram, everything.”
