Queens Park Rangers defender Todd Kane has been charged for directing abusive and/or insulting language towards an opponent.
That’s according to a statement posted on the QPR website, which relayed the news that the FA have charged Kane for directing abusive and/or insulting language regarding the nationality and/or ethnicity of an opponent towards Brentford midfielder Sergi Canos, with the 27-year-old having until May 17th to respond to the charge.
This latest charge is not the first time that Kane has been involved in controversy this season, as, during an interview with ‘R’ Generation back in April (via West London Sport), the defender stated his belief that he is a “better” right-back than Osman Kakay.
Meanwhile, Kakay has been turning in a number of impressive performances at right-back, most noticeably when earning a SofaScore match rating of 7.2 against Coventry City, receiving a 7.0 rating against Rotherham United and when picking up a 7.9 rating last time out against Stoke City.
In contrast, over his 28 Championship appearances for QPR this season, Kane has been distinctly average, with his seasonal SofaScore match rating of 6.75 only being enough to rank him as the club’s 15th best performer in the second tier.
So, when considering the performances of the right-back so far this season, in addition to his disrespectful claim regarding a teammate, as well as the latest shameful incident the £7,000-per-week man now finds himself involved in, it would appear highly advisable that Mark Warburton should look to move the defender on this summer, as he appears to be a far greater hassle away from the pitch than his performances on the pitch are worth.
Indeed, following the news of his recent FA charge, fans of QPR appear to want rid of the 27-year-old, with some calling for the club to “terminate his contract” while others stated their belief that Kane should “not be anywhere near our first team.”
