Refs’ Organisation Says Harry Kane’s ‘Dangerous Tactic’ Needs To Be Addressed
Opposition fans are furious after Harry Kane got away with another dangerous foul in yesterday's North London derby.
But he also courted controversy after a reckless piece of play caused a nasty fall for Gunners defender Gabriel in stoppage time.
As the pair challenged in the air, Kane backed into the Brazilian without looking at the ball or attempting to go for it.
His momentum in winning the header saw him tumble down in what looked an extremely painful landing. No free-kick was given and play continued.
Jamie Carragher recently called Kane "the most streetwise player in the Premier League" and he's regularly got away with this sort of tactic - even winning his side a penalty against Adam Lallana and Brighton.

It also seems like he is the one being fouled at first glance but the 27-year-old knows exactly what he is doing.
A compilation of Kane doing it time and time again has been the rounds on social media, while there's been negative reaction aplenty to his antics.
Refsupportuk, an organisation who give advice to referees, have said Kane's approach needs to be addressed as it could see youngsters follow his lead and potentially cause a fatal injury because of the way in which the opponent falls.
