‘The hate will ramp up’ – Ian Wright delivers verdict on Everton controversy this week

According to Ian Wright, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane made the correct decision to go down after Abdoulaye Doucoure touched his face during the 1-1 draw against Everton on Monday, writes the GN.

Doucoure’s actions caused Kane to dramatically fall to the ground, leading to controversy and ultimately resulting in the Toffees midfielder being sent off by the officials.

During an episode of Wrighty’s House, Ian Wright discussed Harry Kane’s recent incident during the match against Everton and suggested that if Kane joins Manchester United in the summer, he may face even more criticism.

According to Wright, Doucoure made contact with Kane’s face, and Kane fell to the ground after a slight delay. Wright saw nothing wrong with Kane’s actions and questioned whether Doucoure would have been sent off if Kane didn’t go down.

Wright said: “We’ve got to talk about Harry Kane’s incident [Everton] and if he goes to Manchester United in the summer, the hate will ramp up.

“I saw it [the incident] and said, ‘Oh okay. He’s going to get some stick for this. Doucoure put his hands and it’s a red.

“There is a time lapse before he goes down but I don’t see a problem with it. If he just did that to Harry Kane’s face and he didn’t go down, would he have got sent off?”
