'Even Rugby Have Outlawed It' - Exclusive: Campbell rages at 'Dangerous' Tottenham player

Kevin Campbell has been left reeling by the actions of Tottenham striker Harry Kane in the North London derby.

The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, is adamant that the 27-year-old will seriously injure someone if he continues to lean into opposition players when they are airborne.

Kane sparked fury on Twitter when he sent Gunner’s defender Gabriel Magalhaes tumbling to the floor in Spurs’ 4-0 home win on Sunday.


The England captain has been involved in similar collisions with Brighton’s Adam Lallana and West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell this season.

Campbell is baffled as to how referees are missing these “dangerous” fouls.

“Well, that is the third of fourth one I have seen from Harry Kane,” he told Football Insider.

“It is so dangerous, so dangerous.

“What baffles me is that I see the referees giving him the free-kick! I cannot believe it.

“Is it going to take somebody to really get injured? Do their shoulder, neck or back before somebody understands what is going on?

“The worst thing is, he looks before he does it. He looks out the corner of his eye and then backs into them when they are off the floor.

“It is so dangerous. Even in rugby they have outlawed that.

“I am sure referees will start having a look at that now. You cannot get away with that, England captain or not.”
