‘I HAVE NEVER DIVED TO WIN A PENALTY IN MY CAREER’- HARRY KANE

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has said that he has never dived in his career, hitting back at claims that he has twice done so since the start of the season.

The England international, 26, was accused of diving late on to win a penalty against North London rivals Arsenal last weekend after a challenge from defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos. Kane was also accused of diving in Spurs’ previous game against Newcastle, going down easily after a tackle from defender Jamaal Lascelles.

When asked if he has ever dived, Kane said: “Never and, hopefully, I don’t have to. I said after the Arsenal game it’s a 50/50 one, similar to the one we got given against us at Wembley the year before. It happens in football.

“I am someone who uses his body well, which as a striker you have to do at every level. On the half-way line it’s a free kick every day of the week. In the penalty box you don’t always get it.

“People’s opinions are their opinions. I wasn’t concentrating on that sort of stuff. For me, it’s about doing my best on the pitch and the most important thing is about winning games.”
