(Video) ‘If that was Salah or Mane…’ Some Reds claim Harry Kane’s ludicrous Spurs dive proves media hypocrisy

Posted by

Harry Kane dived as Jose Mourinho got his first win as the new Tottenham boss this afternoon, as Spurs beat West Ham United 2-3 at the London Stadium.

The England forward has a history of throwing himself to the ground easily, though many Reds supporters were quick to point out that had it been one of Sadio Mane or Mo Salah, the reaction from the media and the wider public might have been a little different.

This is how some Reds fans – and a few West Ham ones too – took to Twitter to make a similar point.



Hopefully, the Reds get the job done at Crystal Palace without any controversy this afternoon. Otherwise, this topic is going to be dragged up once again.
