Exclusive: Agbonlahor fumes as 'Very Dangerous' picture emerges of Spurs man
Gabriel Agbonlahor has called on Tottenham striker Harry Kane to stop leaning into opponents when they are trying to win a header.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley, the former Aston Villa and England striker suggested his actions could result in a serious arm or head injury.
The England captain was pictured leaning into an airborne Gabriel Magalhaes late on in Sunday’s north London derby without punishment.
Kane has already knocked Brighton’s Adam Lallana and West Ham’s Aaron Cresswell to the ground when challenging for a header in a similar fashion this season.
Against Brighton, the striker even managed to win a penalty with his actions after a VAR review.
However, Agbonlahor expects the 27-year-old to cut the dangerous play out of his game if it is pointed out to him.

Asked by Football Insider what he made of Kane’s clashes in recent weeks, he said: “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.”
Kane continued his extremely productive start to the season in Spurs’ 2-0 win over Arsenal at the weekend as he added his 14th goal and 12th assist of the season.
He combined with Heung-Min Son for both goals against the Gunners and the pair have now provided for 31 goals for each other, just five behind Premier League leaders Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard of Chelsea.
