Tottenham boss Pochettino furious with Delph: You stepped on Harry's ankle

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was angry with Fabian Delph's reaction in the aftermath of Harry Kane's ankle injury.

During the Spurs' Champions League win, Kane was attempting to block Delph's pass back to goalkeeper Ederson, but off balance appeared to twist his ankle - down onto which came Delph.

The City midfielder-cum-leftback wasn't pleased with Kane's attempted challenge, reacting with a degree of anger.

That ultimately led to words with Pochettino, who revealed: "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.

"[And] he stepped on his ankle. I said to him that he was lucky, because checking on VAR maybe technically it was a red card.

"Both were fighting for the ball, the intention was not to damage each other. [There's] no problem between us."
