Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has called on Harry Kane to stop making contact with players when they are trying to win a header and insisted that the Tottenham man could end up seriously injuring someone.
Kane was seen leaning into Gabriel Magalhaes when the Arsenal defender jumped to win the ball during Tottenham’s 2-0 win in the North London derby on Sunday.
This was not the first time such an incident has occurred, with Kane also making contact with an airborne Adam Lallana during Spurs’ 2-1 win over Brighton back in October.
The incident was adjudged to be a foul on Kane by Lallana and caused much controversy at the time.
However, Agbonlahor believes that putting someone off balance when they are mid-air could make them fall awkwardly and thus risks a serious injury.
When asked about the incident, he told Football Insider: “It is quite dangerous.
“When somebody goes in for a header and you lean in like that, it’s going to make them fall awkwardly on their arm or their head.
“Maybe it’s something he has to stop “I’m sure if it’s highlighted to him he will stop it because it’s very dangerous, for sure.”
