It wasn’t the first time, and it remains to be seen if it was the last one. Dele Alli went down inside Huddersfield’s box while Tottenham were already leading 3-0, he earned himself a yellow card for his simulation, and a public “stop doing that” from his coach.
I didn’t see it. But if it was like this then he needs to learn. He must learn
Mauricio Pochettino told reporters after Tottenham’s 4-0 triumph, in a game that saw Harry Kane score two more goals.
This type of action doesn’t help him, doesn’t help the team and doesn’t help football
the Spurs manager said, clearly disappointed with his player, who has done the same thing over and over again, occasionally fooling a referee, like in Tottenham’s game against Swansea City.
We have been talking in the last few years about fair play, to be honest. I think he is improving a lot and learning but still he must learn
the Argentine also said. As for Kane, Pochettino virtually applauded Huddersfield’s fans for the standing ovation they treated the England international with when he got substituted.
Fantastic. I am so proud to be a manager in England. Today that was fantastic from the Huddersfield fans. To recognise one of the best players in England. His country loves him. That is so important. I enjoyed it a lot. The stadium, everything makes us very proud to be here in the Premier League in this country. I am so happy to manage here
were Pochettino’s words.
