Some Spurs fans on social media are angered by reports that Gareth Southgate is set to play Harry Kane in England’s Nations League clash against Denmark on Wednesday.
Kane was reported to be a doubt for the clash against Belgium on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury.
However, The England manager confirmed before the game that Kane was only suffering from muscle fatigue and that he had not picked up an injury.
The striker started the game against Belgium on the bench but Southgate bought him on for a second-half cameo as he helped the Three Lions to see off a hard-fought 2-1 win.
The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham do not want their star striker to be risked against Denmark and would like to see him return to Hotspur Way as they are worried he could aggravate his injury.
However, the report asserts that Southgate is likely to give the 27-year-old a long run-out on Wednesday.
Some Spurs fans on social media have blasted the England manager and claimed that he would be solely responsible if Kane were to get injured after playing against Denmark.

Spurs pay his wages, so we should have final decision and if they want him to go back to Spurs then he should go back

Jose knows that Spurs have a legitimate shot this year, and does not want to have anything derail it.

Who pays his salary? The FA? Thought not. Gary needs to think long term.

Spurs Web Opinion
Given the form Dominic Calver-Lewin and Ings are in, Southgate can certainly get away with resting Kane but one can understand why he would want him to play in an important game. Hopefully, Kane will not give the green light to be involved in the match unless he is feeling 100 per cent. I personally think Kane is likely to start on Wednesday since he got half an hour under his belt against Belgium and seemed to be moving fine.
