We need to talk about Harry Kane and cheating

Harry Kane has once again been called out for cheating but this time it’s for his diving after he simulated against Leicester City.

A video shared to Twitter by user @THINGEO illustrates the Spurs striker pushing the ball past Leicester City defender Timothy Castagne before diving over the tackle with his legs pinned together.

Diving has been a major issue in the Premier League for several years and it has been made even worse by the introduction of VAR. Kane is a serial defender and even has a trademark style in which he dupes referees.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane dismissed accusations of diving from Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk following a 2-2 draw at Anfield. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY SKY SPORTS.

In February 2018, van Dijk accused Kane of diving to win a penalty at Anfield but the Spurs striker denied the accusation.

Kane responded to the charges, saying: “He (Karius) has dived, he got in the way and I’m a player, I’m not going to jump out of the way because it’s football.

“I definitely felt contact and I went down.”

Just two weeks ago, Premier League Central columnist James Wilkinson penned an article about Kane and the new dangerous habit he has formed which will soon get one of his opponents seriously injured.

Accusing a footballer of cheating isn’t something I take lightly but Spurs fans will agree that removing simulation from his game will only improve Kane as a player. He uses it as a crutch in games where things aren’t going his way.

Spurs succumbed to a 2-0 defeat on Sunday – a game in which Kane failed to register a single shot on target.
