Stellini: Former players who disrespect Kane lack respect for Tottenham

    Tottenham Hotspur interim manager Christian Stellini accused former players of disrespecting the club after Harry Kane was criticized for red-carding Abdoulaye Doukur in a 1-1 draw with Everton.

    The England captain has been targeted by some for his reaction to Ducur’s hand to Kane’s face during a Premier League match at Goodison Park on Monday.

    Kane fell to the floor holding his face as Dukur received the order to go.

    At Thursday’s press conference, Stellini said: “It seems strange to me that some former players have said something wrong about Harry. They are former players and they know the difference between watching something in slow motion and living it in real motion.

    “In addition, the Everton manager [Sean Dyche] said it was a clear red card. Maybe they respect Harry, but they don’t respect Tottenham.

    Spurs host top four rivals Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday and Stellini confirmed he does not expect any of his injured players to return, although he indicated that Richarlison could return to Bournemouth next weekend.

    “There is no good news about players coming back for the next game,” he said. “We are getting closer to Richarlison. He trained on the field, but he trained alone. Ben Davis and I are fine with the plan, but we’ll have to wait a bit.

    “[Richarlison] practiced on the field. He’s doing well and could be available in the next game.”
