Tottenham’s Harry Kane goes down under a challenge from Brighton’s Adam Lallana during their EPL match in London Monday

Mourinho bridled at the suggestion that he had instructed his players to show a cynical side to their game in the pursuit of win

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has defended Harry Kane against suggestions the striker dived to win a penalty in his team’s 2-1 Premier League win over Brighton and Hove Albion over the weekend.

Kane went down under a challenge from Brighton midfielder Adam Lallana, earning a penalty for Spurs that he then converted.

Mourinho was asked at a pre-match news conference Wednesday, a day before Spurs’ trip to face Bulgarian side Ludogorets Razgrad in the Europa League, whether the England striker had been “streetwise” in winning the penalty.

The Portuguese also bridled at the suggestion that he had instructed his players to show a more cynical side to their game in the pursuit of victory.
