Spurs have lodged an appeal to the Premier League for Harry Kane to be awarded Man City’s third goal against QPR in May, 2012.
As it stands, the famous title-winning goal belongs to Sergio Aguero but the Spurs forward claims he ‘got a touch’ just before it crossed the line.
The extraordinary claim comes just hours after Spurs appealed to the league to get one of Christian Eriksen’s goals against Stoke credited to Kane.
Kane is keen to make up ground on Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot but his claim that Aguero’s winner all those years ago actually belongs to him hints at almost surreal levels of desperation.
Spurs’ unofficial spokesman, Lee Satchell, spoke to the media this morning: “It’s Harry’s goal, plain and simple.
“At the time, it looked like Aguero’s goal, but that was just the camera angle. An optical illusion they call it.
“We’ve got hold of previously unseen footage, that has in no way be doctored with by our video team, that clearly shows Harry getting a little flick.
“Some people will say that Harry was on loan at Millwall at the time, or that he never played for City, but they’re all just jealous Gooners.
“The whole thing is Martin Tyler’s fault in a way. He meant to yell ‘Aguerooooo… KANEEEEEE!!!!’ but his voice broke and the microphone briefly cut out.
“That’s why loads of people think it’s Aguero’s goal. Deluded idiots.”
The club are also considering appeals to have Wayne Rooney’s Manchester derby bicycle kick and Alan Shearer’s volley against Everton awarded to Kane.
Although, Spurs have withdrawn their appeal to have Michael Thomas’ title-winning goal at Anfield credited to Kane after remembering he wasn’t even born at the time.
In unrelated news, NASA have confirmed they have been contacted by a 24-year-old North Londoner who claims he step foot on the moon before Neil Armstrong.
