Wolverhampton Wanderers’ social media team have appeared to have aimed an indirect dig at Harry Kane’s summer transfer saga at Tottenham Hotspur.
Responding to one of the most recent videos on Wolves TikTok account, a Spurs fan posted a reply in which they suggested that Harry Kane is a better player than Raul Jimenez.
Wolves attempted to offer some quick-witted humour by claiming: “But at least Jimenez wants to play for us.”
Kane’s future at Tottenham during the summer was the subject of intense press speculation with reports suggesting that the 28-year-old was desperate to depart North London and join Premier League champions Manchester City (The Athletic).

Kane made his first Premier League appearance of the season at Molineux last month when he came off the bench for the final fifteen minutes of Spurs’ 1-0 win and was the focal point of some of the songs from the home supporters who mocked Kane’s reported preference to leave the club (Alasdair Gold).
The Kane saga was one of the biggest talking points throughout the summer and it is hardly a shock that it is still being used as a dig.
When official club accounts try to imitate the tone and voice of supporters, however, is questionable and can be considered to be in poor taste by many.
