‘How and why is Kane in that list, What a joke’ Twitter Reacts To Nomination In Sports Personality Year Award

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been nominated for the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year Award and their spectators have gone crazy over the nomination of the England striker. BBC recently announced their 12-person shortlist for the Sports Personality of the Year Award and Kane was the only football representative for the honour.

However, his nomination has not been digested well by the spectators as many were left wondering as to what he did in order to deserve a place on the list. Of course, Tottenham fans wouldn’t argue much with his inclusion but the general audience has expressed their bitterness in public.

Just in, Harry Kane is a two time Golden Boot winner, having scored 25 and 29 goals in 2015/16 and 2016/17 season respectively. This season, as always, the striker started off a bit slowyl but picked up the pace since September and till date, he has bagged 9 league goals.

2017 has proved to be a massive year for the striker. In this calendar year, the 24-year-old has scored 47 goals in all competitions, including his international goals. Furthermore, talking about his Premier League exploits, Kane has bagged 30 goals in 2017, including 3 hat-tricks and a 4-goal haul against Leicester City in May.

The 12-man shortlist includes the likes of recently crowned Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton and distance runner Mo Farah amongst others, but Kane’s inclusion has sparked a lot of reactions. Have a look at how the spectators reacted:
