Harry Kane: Mauricio Pochettino says FA Cup tweet 'embarrassing'

Share

Mauricio Pochettino has branded the Football Association an embarrassment for its tweet that mocked the performance of Harry Kane in last Saturday's FA Cup semi-final.

The FA Cup's official Twitter account posted a meme of Manchester United defender Chris Smalling saying Kane's name accompanied with text asking who had been in his pocket following United's semi-final win over Spurs last weekend.

It was retweeted more than 20,000 times before being deleted and the FA apologised to the clubs.

Meanwhile, Harry Winks is still recovering with injury and Pochettino admitted he is not sure whether the English youngster will feature again this season. "It was a shame because the FA is English football and a potential captain like Kane in the World Cup I think was hard to understand, very, very hard".

"Tottenham is doing a fantastic job developing an awesome project and I only wanted to tell you that this project is long-term". It is in fashion sometimes to boo or criticise [players] like this but I think people love them but it is true sometimes we magnify the situation and we create an issue when really there is not an issue. But he's strong in his mind. "It is hard to understand, very hard and they have apologised about that", he said.

Cosby had admitted to giving Constand the anti-allergy medication Benadryl and that their sexual encounter was consensual. The actor offered her three blue pills to "help take the edge off", which she took believing they were a natural remedy.

The Argentinian said that Kane had been very sad and that the club is helping him to move on.

"Always from day one when I arrived in England I say we need to protect our assets, our English players, the young players", he said. But the situation disappointed me, the fact that it happened and then they apologised after a few days'.

"Only I wanted to tell you that it's a long-term project, that is not going to change with us or another coaching staff".

"We need to win. It was what I feel and what I told you". After three or four years we are able to compete with clubs like United, [Manchester] City or Chelsea or Liverpool but there is still work to do. "Then the decision is for the club, the owner of the club, or my boss Daniel Levy to trust or not trust in myself".
