Watch: Micah Richards calls out media hypocrisy during Pogba & Kane debate
Kane has been heavily linked with a move to City throughout the summer and reportedly refused to turn up for training in early August.
Spurs were still able to beat Pep Guardiola’s side without their captain as Son Heung-min scored the only goal of the game in the second half.
After the full-time whistle, Richards asked why Kane hasn’t faced more scrutiny for his efforts to engineer a move away from North London
He then compared the situation to Paul Pogba’s at Manchester United, who has been criticised despite rarely speaking about his future.
Fellow Sky Sports pundits Graeme Souness and Gary Neville also entered the lively debate by suggesting that Pogba’s agent speaks on the midfielder’s behalf.
Watch the debate below.
