Tottenham have received a lot of plaudits from many pundits and former players after they produced a scintillating second-half display to thrash Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
Spurs now have one foot in the quarter finals after scoring three second-half goals without reply courtesy of Son Heung-Min, Jan Vertonghen, and Fernando Llorente.
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright was one among those who was impressed by Spurs’ display and took to Twitter to congratulate Arsenal’s rivals. After the game ended Wright posted a gif of Leonardo DiCaprio clapping in The Wolf of Wall Street as a way of applauding the performance.
However, some Arsenal fans on social media started sending abuse his way and even questioned his love for Arsenal, merely for complimenting Spurs. So many Twitter trolls ganged up on the post that the former striker eventually decided to delete it.
However the 55-year-old took to Twitter again to clarify himself through the following message:
Took down the Spurs tweet last night becos it lacked context! Thought they were brilliant without key players. 3-0 is a great result! That said, some of the vile abuse I received doubting my love for Arsenal because I applauded a very good Spurs performance is crazy. More love 😎
