Mauricio Pochettino believes that Fabian Delph’s challenge on Harry Kane’s ankle that forced him out of action in Spurs’ 1-0 win over Manchester City was unintentional and that there no malice involved.

Speaking to BT Sport in his post-match interview, the Argentine said:

“Fabian was very disappointed with that situation,

“He was so aggressive with Harry after the action, I tried to make him understand that it wasn’t an intention to damage each other, it was just a tough action.

“He stepped on his ankle. I said to him that he was lucky, because checking on VAR maybe technically it was a red card.

“I’ve seen the action, both were very strong in the action but both didn’t have the intention to make damage to the other.

“That’s why I tried to talk to him, he was very upset with the aggressive action.

“They were both fighting for the ball without the intention to damage each other.”
