Rooney reveals why he thinks Kane will quit Tottenham

Referee Johnathan Moss and linesman Eddie Smart cause confusion over penalty decision

The former England skipper was a guest pundit for Sky Sports' Monday Night Football and described Kane as 'the best striker in Europe', but warned that his focus could move from scoring goals, to winning trophies.

The Premier League top scorer, however, was criticised by Liverpool's £75 million January recruit Van Dijk who opined that Kane intentionally dived to earn a penalty.

Backing Moss, PGMOL added: "In real time this was a difficult series of decisions which the match officials judged correctly in recognising that Kane was not offside, as Lovren had deliberately played the ball, and he was fouled for the award of the penalty kick". "I'm not going to jump out of the way because it's football", said Kane, denying Van Dijk's accusation. And that's fine. But I don't want to go'.

Klopp was also bemused by the linesman's desperation to have the final penalty awarded: "Did you see the linesman?"

Rooney feels Kane should be the man to captain England at this summer's World Cup because of his natural leadership qualities. And yet, it didn't immediately work out for him.

"Sometimes that happens so as a striker you just have to deal with it and hope the next one will come soon".

"I dreamed of playing for Spurs since I was a boy", said Kane, writing for the Players' Tribune.

You have to wonder whether, if anyone else but the English golden boy featured in this play, the refereeing decision would have been so generous given the blatant dive.

"At the time, I'd say we were close, but not super close".

The ball is touched by Fernando Llorente and into Erik Lamela, who is fractionally offside in my opinion. It was a header - probably the best header I've ever scored - and that feeling when it hit the back of the net.

Heavily-ghostwritten, and yet none the less insightful for that, Kane's article is a useful document on several fronts.

Now on 130 goals for Spurs, Kane sits ninth in the club's all-time top 10 scorers, which is headed by the legendary Jimmy Greaves (with 266 goals). So I open the door and he's sitting there at his desk with a glass of red wine. We have to take it, that's how it is.

Tottenham have now won just one of 19 visits to Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in Pochettino's four-year reign in charge.

"I thought in the second half we played much better".

Kane was brought down six minutes from time at Anfield by goalkeeper Loris Karius, who saved the spot-kick. In the 93rd minute you whistle a penalty when you are 100% sure. There is no grey area.
