Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts hits out at the PFA.

Former Tottenham Hotspur captain Graham Roberts has called for heads to roll after the latest 'joke' at Harry Kane's expense.

After the FA's official Twitter account mocked Kane's poor display against Manchester United [BBC], Kane was subject of a 'gag' at the PFA Awards.

 

Kane has been subject of mockery online after he claimed a goal against Stoke City which was originally credited to teammate Christian Eriksen, but this has come from rival fans.

When it is organisations and lead figures within them poking fun at the Tottenham striker, it's seen as overstepping the mark.

Former Tottenham captain Graham Roberts had a dim view, and believes PFA chair Purkiss should apologise... or resign, branding him a disgrace.

 

Kane for his part has kept a dignified silence on the row, and will intend to respond in the only manner he knows how... scoring goals.

He will be frustrated after the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester United and this weekend's opponents Watford will potentially be in for a very stern test.
