Pochettino hits out at ’embarrassing’ Harry Kane FA tweet

Date published: Friday 27th April 2018 2:18 - Robert McCarthy

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has said the Football Association tweet that mocked Spurs and England striker Harry Kane was “embarrassing”.

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

The tweet was deleted and the FA apologised to both clubs, but Pochettino was not happy.

“For me it was embarrassing,” he said. “It was a shame because the FA is English football and a potential captain like Harry Kane in the World Cup I think was difficult to understand, very, very difficult.

“Of course they apologised about that. It disappointed me, the situation, the fact it happened. They apologised after a few days but we move on.”
