Compilation Of Harry Kane's Controversial 'Backing In' Tactic Shows It's Extremely Dangerous
A video of Harry Kane's controversial 'backing in' tactic has re-emerged following his injury vs Liverpool.
The Tottenham Hotspur man didn't emerge for the second half after injuring his ankles in a collision with Jordan Henderson.
Fans have accused Kane of attempting to 'back in' to Henderson who didn't jump for a header, meaning Kane hit the deck in agony.
Kane has been accused of attempting to 'back in' to his opponents on purpose and a viral video shows he has previous.
Many believe Kane tries to gain an underhanded advantage with the manoeuvre, which can potentially cause injury.
Among the defenders featured are West Ham United's Aaron Cresswell and Arsenal's Gabriel.
In addition to that, an incident with Brighton midfielder Adam Lallana also occurred last year.
Fans on Reddit reacted to the clip and they're hoping Kane cuts it out completely before doing someone serious damage.
One fan commented: Harry Kane should be shown this. He has done this in half the games he has played this season. Unbelievable. If Spurs are a responsible team then they should tell him to stop doing this."

A second said: "This really puts it into perspective just how scummy Kane's habit of doing this is. Should be an instant red and a five game ban, at least. You're potentially putting someone's life in danger. Absolutely inexplicable that he so systematically does this to other footballers."
While a third added: "One day someone will land very badly on his neck and it wont be a joking matter anymore."
Former Spurs midfielder Jamie O'Hara discussed the controversy last month and admitted he would be outraged if Kane tried it on him, saying it could break someone's neck.
"If he did that to me, I would be absolutely raging, I'd want to fight him," O'Hara told talkSPORT. "Because, for me, he should be either getting booked or sent off.
Kane was hoping Henderson jumped up to head the ball, then he'd do his usual backing into a player in mid air and try win the free kick. But Henderson was wise to it. Always thought he was going to eventually injure someone with this move, but the ironic thing is. It was himself! https://t.co/QdQK0CUtRO- Steve Donegan * (@siambuddha1) January 29, 2021
"I love Harry Kane, I'm a Spurs fan. But the way he looks at people... and then as they jump, he backs in, wins a foul, goes down. He can seriously injure someone.
"He could break someone's neck or break someone's arm and put them out. He needs to eradicate that from his game."
