Harry Kane explains his dive against Arsenal on video “Probably thinks I am looking for it”

Now we don’t put many videos on JA, although we may be doing more in future, but this one did make me laugh. Arsenal v Tottenham, the dying minutes and who could have guessed what was going to happen next? Oh! Shock horror!

Harry Kane did his usual dive, and he tried to get his usual penalty against Arsenal by throwing himself on the floor in the last few minutes.

I am not going to slander myself by saying that this is a usual occurence, but according to Statman he has had a penalty in each of the last two derbies. Perhaps he was talking about Aubameyang? (joke)

Well here is the video, and underneath i will give you the transcript as transcribed by the Independent from the Sky video.….

Kane told Sky Sports: “I think it was that stage of the game where he makes a tired tackle. I think if I am on the halfway line I get it, if I’m in the box it’s 50-50. The ref probably thinks I am looking for it but all I’m trying to do is shield the ball.

“But it is what it is. It’s one of them. It could be given in some games but it wasn’t today. You get on and move on.”

So it’s one of them, eh?

Does anyone disagree with Harry’s interpretation?

    When the ref for the match was announced, someone in here said that Kane & Son will look to create penalties, so I guess Kane has a bit of a rep!!!

    Kane is a cheat.

  3. Nonny says:

    It’s a 50/50 have seen lesser penalty’s given he is spot on with his assessment

    Harry had as much chance of getting a penalty in that situation as Xhaka had of getting sent off for going over the top in giving away the other nailed on penalty. Socrates leans across Harry – he’s the only one moving sideways. Next you’ll be suggesting Harry’s shot coming back off the post was a lucky fluke shot. Grow up.

    I’ll look forward to seeing it on let’s all laugh at diving on Soccer AM on Saturday.. who am i kidding, right? It won’t be on there, because he’s England captain..he doesn’t dive ?

      I can’t really say if it was intentional diving or not.

      But it looks like him shielding the ball and expecting a contact to be made for him to fall.

      Thank God we have a fair ref this time.

    Kane has been a serial diver for many years. Without his regular spot kicks, he would struggle to be in the top ten scorers in the premiership. Why Atkinson didn’t book him, only he can say. Perhaps he had a touch of cramp,due to all the earlier bookings he had made.

  7. Durand says:

    Typical Kane, only surprised they asked him about the dive.

    1. Indian gooner says:

      Yes because now I think people are realising that he either dives or looks for one like this match. He isn’t getting away now just because he is the English captain and talisman.

    Harry Kane is a cheat. It was clearly a dive. Forget the anticipated contact jargons. He dived. This is the second dive in 2 weeks. It’s just disgraceful.

    There was the slightest of touches and and then he lurched himself forward. 100% dive!
    I actually felt quite embarrassed for Kane. I showed some pikey scum fans at work and they all agreed that it wasn’t a penalty……. Shocker and he should have been booked!

      Exactly!! Yellow card all day long…
