Jose Mourinho has defended Tottenham striker Harry Kane over a recent backlash from the media following the penalty he was awarded against Brighton on Sunday.
Kane was fouled by former Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana – although some accused the Spurs man of dangerous play, but that’s not how referee Graham Scott saw it.
The England skipper scored the resulting spot-kick, although there’s been plenty of talk about the decision in the days following the game, with some suggesting that it should have been a free-kick the other way.
The Portuguese was asked his thoughts on the incident, and in true Mourinho fashion, he didn’t hold back.
🗣"You are confused because you could be speaking about some Manchester United players, Manchester City players, Liverpool players, Chelsea players and you're speaking about Harry Kane, what is the media speaking about?"
