Harry Kane reveals thoughts and Andy Robertson comment about red card challenge as Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool ended in 2-2 draw

Harry Kane has revealed his thoughts and addressed comments from Andy Robertson on the controversial red card challenge in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-2 draw vs Liverpool yesterday. The match was full of talking points and refereeing decisions that potentially went against both sides.

The 28-year-old opened the scoring as he brilliantly found space between two Reds defenders, which prompted Tanguy Ndombele to slide in a through ball. The former was involved in a controversy in the first half for a dangerous tackle on Robertson that received only a yellow card. Ironically, the Liverpool left-back also scored a goal and got sent off for a challenge on Emerson Royal late in the game, upsetting the away fans to an indescribable extent.

Speaking in the post-match interview with Sky Sports (h/t The Express), Kane defended himself and the decision taken by the referee while conveying why he thinks that is the case. He added that it was just a strong tackle, and a decision should be taken in real-time as slowing it down makes it worse.

Kane revealed thoughts and Robertson comment about red card challenge.
Kane received a yellow card for the challenge on Robertson.

“No. Definitely not [a red card]. It was a strong tackle but I thought I won the ball. When you are playing against top sides and fighting for points sometimes there’ll be strong tackles. They checked it and we move on. It didn’t feel like it and Andy [Robertson] on the pitch said, ‘you just caught my foot’. When you slow things down it makes it look a little worse than it is. That’s what VAR is there for.”

Fair point?

It is understandable if some think the Englishman should have been given the marching orders for the tackle. He had gone in with a lot of momentum and could have done better in trying to hold back the challenge.

What is peculiar is how he thought there was contact made with the ball, which was not the case. Intentions and natural momentum would always be a point of contention unless there is a standard set for similar situations.

The rules surrounding the handball situation have changed a lot over the years, and it would not be surprising to see something similar in this case as well. However, that is not something for us to worry about.

Spurs will now take on West Ham United in the Carabao Cup on Thursday as they try to win the first title in a long period. This result and the display would be a massive boost in morale which would greatly help us when we face a high flying David Moyes’ side.

And thankfully, we will have Kane available for that fixture. A red card for that tackle would have meant us having to navigate a tough series of games without our captain.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
