FA tender apology to Harry Kane
The English Football Association (FA) offered an apology to Tottenham star, Harry Kane for a tweet sent out from their official Twitter account in the wake of last Saturday’s FA Cup tie between Tottenham and Manchester United.
The deleted tweet asked the question: ”What’s that in your pocket, Chris?” was accompanied with a video of Manchester United’s defender Chris Smalling unrelatedly mentioning the name ”Harry Kane”.
FA released a statement which simply reads: ”We have written to both clubs to apologise for any offence caused.”
Tottenham fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United courtesy of goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera to cancel Dele Alli’s opener.
Kane, 24, who was largely anonymous as his team fell to an eight successive FA Cup semi-final at Wembley has been an object of ridicule in the football community since contesting a goal awarded to teammate Christian Eriksen against Stoke City earlier in the month to move him closer to league top scorer Mohammed Salah.
The striker resumes his quest usurp Salah at the top of the table when Tottenham play host to Watford at Wembley next Monday.
