FA Cup:  "The Most ridiculous And Reckless Decision I've Ever Seen" -  Tottenham Fans React To Pochettino's Bizarre Decision To Bring On Harry Kane With Club Aready 6-0 Up At Tranmere
1/05/2019
So, last night Tottenham hammered Tranmere7-0 in the English FA Cup. But fans weren't all that happy after Mauricio Pochettino brought in Harry Kane on the pitch with their club already 6-0 up.
The Spurs striker, who has scored 14 league goals, is the joint English Premier League top scorer this season with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The reason why the decision was so bizarre to Tottenham fans is that Son Heung-Min, who often plays up front alongside Kane or as his replacement, is going to the Asia Cup on January 13.

The South Korea international could miss up to five league and cup matches during that time.

An injury to Kane would leave just Fernando Llorente as the only senior striker available with Vincent Janssen likely to be sold this month. 

Well, Kane did at least score off the bench when he added the seventh in the 82nd minute with a chip over Scott Davies from inside the penalty area.

One Spurs fan said:

This is the most ridiculous and reckless decision I’ve ever seen.

While another added:

Why on earth is Harry Kane coming on? 

With a laughing emoji. 

Tottenham play Chelsea in the Carabao Cup semi-final on Tuesday and one fan joked 'Llorente being rested for the Chelsea game' with a confused GIF. 

We have a semi final in 4 days time and we’re about to bring on Harry Kane when we’re 6-0 up ????? This is the most ridiculous and reckless decision I’ve ever seen




However, Pochettino explained the decision after the match. He said:

It was respect.  'Respect the people, respect the opponent. They're not going to have many chances to see Harry KAne play here in a competition like the FA Cup.

For different reasons I decided to make a change and put Kane on the pitch but one of them is that's important to show respect to the people here so they could see Harry Kane, who is an icon in English football. 

It is difficult in that division to see it. It was important to see him in action.
