Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg accused of copying Harry kane‘dangerous technique’ after leaving Joel Ward on the floor for Tottenham Hotspur against Crystal Palace.
Spurs have missed out on comfortable 4-1 winners as they look to get back into contention for Champions League spots.
The two fought for a header and as Ward was high in the air he came back to Hojbjerg and hit the ground hard.
The Danish midfielder was facing the action and had his eyes on the ball, but many believe he shared similarities with Kane’s backing technique.
It’s something many believe needs to be stopped before a player is seriously injured, with Kane himself injuring his ankles against Liverpool in January.
Seriously, unless the governing body does something about this “Kane challenge” someone will end up badly injured and it will be too late. https://t.co/1DyAsm46qN

It’s only a matter of time until a player lands on their heads and does some serious damage.

Jose Mourinho’s side sealed the win thanks to a pair of suspenders from Kane and Bale, with the duo in top form at the moment.
The Portuguese coach has discussed Bale’s hot form and revealed he has overcome his “psychological scars” after arriving on loan from Real Madrid with an injury.
“I’m very happy, he’s a fantastic player and I’m so happy to work with a player like him,” he said. BBC Sport.
“No one challenged him. We just supported him.
“I found psychological scars. When you have a few seasons with a lot of injuries, I think it’s not muscle scars but psychological scars – it brings fear and instability.
“There is a time when you work really well and everyone around you is giving everything we can give, there is a time when that psychological barrier has to be broken. And he broke it. That was him. , not us. We just supported him. “
