Harry Kane insists that the backlash over his successful goal appeal “doesn’t bother” him.
Kane has been subjected to widespread social media BANTER after being controversially awarded one of Christian Eriksen’s goals against Stoke.
The striker claimed to have got the final touch to Eriksen’s cross, and an independent panel supported his claim.
There were few doubts over the legitimacy of Kane’s latest goal in Tottenham’s 1-1 draw against Brighton on Tuesday, which brings him to 26 goals for the season – four behind Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
But the goal, and every other goal scored anywhere else in every part of the world since the Stoke game, was met with derisory comments on social media.
Kane insists he is not affected by them.
“People are going to jump on the bandwagon and have a bit of fun on social media,” he told Sky Sports News. “But it’s my job to be able to be out there on the pitch and do my best for the team and work hard.
“It’s just part of the game in this day and age. People can have their opinion; it doesn’t bother me in the slightest. Some people can laugh at it, but I’m just focused on my own job.
“There’s still games to go and we’ll see what happens. Salah’s been doing well and we’ve both got four games left so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
