Vile ESPN duo mock Harry Kane for how he speaks

Harry Kane entered the list of all-time top 10 goalscorers in the Premier League and these ESPN presenters had the gall to mock his speech impediment/nasal voice.

Tottenham Hotspur fought hard to gather all 3 points with a 2-1 win against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.

Spurs are now second in the points table, sandwiched between the two Merseyside clubs.

Harry Kane scored from the spot on the 13th minute with new signing Gareth Bale notching his first goal in his second stint at Spurs.

Tariq Lamptey gave the North London outfit an almighty scare with a second half leveler for Brighton but Spurs showed resolve to grind out a win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Harry Kane is now the joint-tenth highest goalscorer in Premier League history with 149 goals.

Spurs fans were delighted with their star striker achieving a serious milestone on the night but for viewers watching ESPN’s coverage, their experience was ruined as presenters Alexis Nunes and Mark Ogden took distasteful jibes at Harry Kane’s accent and lisp.

Alexis Nunes could also be heard calling Kane a “mofo” and said – ” for someone who speaks like that, should thank god he plays football”.

Shame on you Alexis Nunes and Mark Ogden for making fun of one of the best footballers on the planet currently.

Absolutely no semblance of any kind of moral compass on display here from these ESPN presenters, check out the clip below –
