The English FA through the official twitter account of the FA Cup has apologised to Spurs striker Harry Kane after he was mocked as he failed to score against Manchester United in the semi-final and later deleted the post.
Tottenham fell 2-1 to Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final and Kane found it hard to break the defence to score as he was well marked by Chris Smalling. Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen linked up to provide Spurs lone goal of the contest while Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera netted the goals for the Red Devils.
After the match, the FA Cup’s official Twitter account posted a message asking United defender Chris Smalling what was in his pocket with a video showing Smalling replying “Harry Kane” to something unrelated.
The FA released a statement, apologising to both teams over the incident.
“We have written to both clubs to apologise for any offence caused.”
Kane has been the subject of many jokes over the past two weeks since successfully winning an appeal to claim a goal originally credited to Eriksen in Tottenham’s victory over Stoke City.
